What caught my attention of week 48 of 2020.
Habits of mind to navigate uncertainty by Sonja Blignaut
- Cultivate curiosity and openness. Use systems thinking.
- Embrace the messy environments for creativity.
- Learn to discern time and timing.
“You may have heard of “upskilling” – equipping workers with the tools and education needed for a new job within the same company. Outskilling differs in that, while it does grant the same kind of training, it is with the implication that workers will likely eventually leave the company – either on their own or, increasingly, due to automation-based layoffs – and take those skills elsewhere.”
“Self-care begins with you. It comes in many shapes and sizes, but done consciously and consistently, it gives you the tools you need to become a better leader and a happier, healthier person. If you want to become the best version of yourself — and inspire those around you to do the same — investing in your own well-being is worth making time for.”
