Agency & Velocity – Curated Insights
When time allows, I share actionable insights I notice from my network and beyond.
Learnability & Agency
“I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.” ― Pablo Picasso HT @BrandOuellette
“People are born with intrinsic motivation, self-esteem, dignity, curiosity to learn, joy in learning.” — W. Edwards Deming HT @RunaBouius
“If you have fortitude for growth and invest in learning, I believe you can be resilient… Own your strengths, write them down, challenge yourself to live and showcase your strengths. Every. Day.” — @lpwooten HT @GallupEDU
“It’s a whole concept of fighting,” Jewett said. “You’re learning things on the fly to get stronger and reach a new potential. I feel like track is like where you reach new potentials. You find your own superpower within the race.
Whether it’s somebody that runs in the back or somebody that runs in the front or somebody that runs a part of the race differently, that’s their power.
And it’s cool to test your power and abilities against somebody else. And getting stronger as a human being — that’s such a cool concept to me, that we can push our bodies and push our limits.” — Isaiah Jewett in the Washington Post
“Any human anywhere will blossom in a hundred unexpected talents and capacities simply by being given the opportunity to do so.” — Doris Lessing
Community Management & Leadership
“The biggest mistake I see people – including #cmgr – make when starting a new community is not building one-on-one relationships with early members. They see it as not scalable (it is not) but it IS the only way to scale effectively” — @rhappe
“While we all may not be experts in all areas, we can balance our strengths with the strengths of others to create value for ourselves, our teams, and our communities.” — @kschottphoto
“Future workplaces should be proactively designed, led, and managed for community building and relationship.” — @cat_pearce71
“When we developed our Exploratory Leadership framework, @jenfrahm & I positioned embodied intelligence at its center – a strategic advantage of every leader capable of guiding their teams through unparalleled opportunity and routine uncertainty. #exploratoryleadership#leadership” — @changingview
Distributed Work & Network
“Work from anywhere (if you can), at variable times, is surely how we manage not only our health, equality of opportunity, help carbon footprint issues and serve 24–7 societies in the digital era.” — @PerryTimms
“The network encourages symbiosis, collaboration and exploration across organisational boundaries. It enables teams to connect the dots, make sense of their world, answer the question posed by the poet, T.S. Eliot, in a 1934 play:
Identity & Meaning Making
“Let’s hope now that with data analytics we can glean how we use our work tools and technology so we create new ways of working. It means a focus on not just continual learning but meaning making.” ― @ActivateLearn
“I am made of pieces and of the spaces between them where other pieces used to be. I am a landscape of loss. Most of me is the memory of where else, and who else, and with whom, I have been and no longer am.” ― @BluewrenCantos, The Blue Plateau: An Australian Pastoral
“We, humans, are intuitive beings. We sense from what we observe, hear, smell, touch. We have the ability to convert disparate data and past knowledge/patterns into useful information, by connecting the dots. And we do a lot of it unconsciously without much effort.” — Srikanth Ramanujam
“Trusting is a verb. Let life carry you — No matter how rough it seems.” — @8momentsinlife
