Purpose and Preparation… not PowerPoint 😉
Hello, this is long time ago…
Corona-period has awaken the force inside and the desire to write again 🙂
With the new home-working and home-schooling mindset, being on (video) calls is part of the day. I have no problem with that, even I like this new culture of independence and accountability of your work. BUT, what really stresses me are the long sessions or participation (of some people) during online meetings and workshops.
As consultant, I have the opportunity to speak in public regularly: workshops, trainings or presentations. All of them require different kind of preparation, based on the content, the purpose and the audience. Regardless all the above, I need PREPARATION.
As Functional Consultant, I have the opportunity to work with your peers everyday. I have learned a lot by discussing, (re-)explaining, and asking myself WHYYY!!??
Your contribution is key in the era of technology. You are the craftsman behind-the-scene without even know it. That’s the reason I have a couple of insights that might help you to be more effective in your daily mission:
I would continue thinking -and doing- the same.
I would be missing the opportunity to growth and learn.
I wouldn’t be writing this.
Thank God I made mistakes last year. And all the shit of 2017 is my fertilizer for this year!
I wish you all the best –mistakes- for 2018 😉
“Embrace the mess“. It’s an expression I heard some days ago. And after a messy-week that’s exactly what I needed.
“This is the time for creativity“, he said. For me, creativity was a sacred moment with a spark of inspiration and not a survival effect.
“Just because you don’t like it, doesn’t mean is not helping you“. Deep in my heart, I know is true. But I confess: I’m still trying to find HOW.
