Sitting in the SJ lounge waiting for my train back home after three beautiful days at the IDG summit 2023. Scared by the crass truth about climate change. Touched by international speakers. Happy for meetings with people I never thought I’d sit down and talk to and inspired to work with a brilliant framework for inner development. Big words? Yes, and let me explain how this also might relate to you.
Lot’s of buzz on AI in general and ChatGPT in particular. Listened to an episode of the Swedish podcast “AI för ledare och CXO:er” (well worth the 60 minutes!) and decided to give it a try. And here’s what I got when I asked it to “Write me a 400 word blog post on how decision making is affected by nature exposure”.
The topic definitely sounds like a highly stressful situation, but this autumn passed with a flow for me, and I want to share some of my strategies for juggling the everyday life as a parent, entrepreneur (don’t really like that word), dog owner, a person reluctant to say no to fun things and being a husband. I know I preach to hold space for dialogues, reflection and inspiration. But do I take my own medicine?
”A minute to learn. A lifetime to master” was written on the box of the game Mastermind when I was a kid. I never thought so much about it then, but nowadays I think it applies to a lot of the things in life. Just this week, three different persons said to me “seems like you enjoy your life right now”, and yes, I do. Don’t know if that means I have mastered life yet, but I hope I’m on my way and here are a few secrets to that!
I really thought I had seen the light, but while using agile frameworks I started to realize lots of companies just use agile to patch broken things and treat symptoms – and not the organizational disease they are suffering from. I reevaluated agile, and here is my take on the needs of modern management and HR.
It takes 10 000 hours to be an expert at something. Or at least so they say. I haven’t counted my hours within Talent Acquisition, Recruitment and Employer Branding, but after about ten years as a consultant within these scopes, I hope I have gained some knowledge – that I’ve found use for at Afterworkshop.
