Digital Literacy - A Critical Survival Skill

Thought leaders and research companies that study the future of work state that soft skills, such as critical thinking and empathy will be vital. These techniques will contribute to lifelong learning, enhanced collaboration and even cybersecurity by ensuring people think more before doing, and who seek to connect more efficiently with the people they are communicating with. As AI and machine learning take over more of people's current work responsibilities, it will be "soft" people skills that will become central to each person's professional destiny. Â

The Amazing Me Project

Project management is often thought of as something done mainly in construction and IT. But in truth it's a proven and practical way of getting things done, using people, tasks and time. Paul Gallagher is the author of a new book entitled The Amazing Me Project. He describes how using project management techniques like goal setting and collaborating with mentors helped him work through some difficult times and helped him get on track with his work and marathon running goals. He joins me on this podcast to share his experiences and to discuss how his book can help you.

The Slow Movement and You

People are getting locked inside a loop of surface-level urgencies and are losing the ability to connect creatively with mentors, clients, even their managers. Working days are getting longer, and the separation between work and life is eroding. This, I call, âdeath-in-harness.â Cool Down takes a look at the Slow movement that is catching on in Japan and Europe, and asks whether it could possibly take root here, and indeed whether it even should. He takes the concept of âSlowâ apart and rebuilds it, using terms, case studies and common sense segments that demonstrate clearly that to get further ahead faster, people do actually need to cool down.

Decompressing - Picture Your Brain as a Bath Sponge

We live in a go-go-go society, where taking breaks or signing off for the day seem like a cop-out. But the brain and body you call home operate on a set of rules far older than any technology you hold in your hands. When you learn to recognize the power of breaks, decompression, and stepping over that line between work and home life, that's when you can truly capitalize on your metabolic strengths and be the best you can be.

Daylight Savings Time and Net 60 Both Need to Die

Why do we change clocks manually when IoT technology can handle it? Why do we have such problems integrating remote work and flextime? Why do all keyboards still use QWERTY? And why do large companies take 2 months to pay suppliers? These are all antiquated processes that we hang on to in just the same way that our calendar still pays homage to Roman gods. Maybe itâs time for a change.

The Rising Bar of Expectation

Could you imagine waiting 6 months for a return message to arrive? Thatâs what people had to do a couple of centuries back.

Should you work faster or learn to say âno?â Your future depends of building the skills to handle this rising tide. Are you ready for that?
