Now we’ve been living in these strange times for awhile. We’ve all had the opportunity to evaluate the overnight forced digital transformation and the pivot to the way we’ve had to work mostly remotely over these last 4-5 months.Continue reading “How the world of people development will evolve post-pandemic”
Before we begin:
If you’ve read any of my stuff before, particularly my work on Steal These Thoughts!, then you’ll know I have a somewhat obsession with human development and the exploration of meaning.
I’m of the opinion that having meaning in life is more important than happiness. Mainly because happiness is an emotional state, one that is fleeting and cannot be sustained.

A quick note before we begin:
This is a topic I’ve wanted to write about for sometime, it’s actually been in the works for nearly 8 months.
I’ve always been fascinated by human behaviour and exploring why we do the things we do. As a society, mental health issues have been on a scary increase over the last 10-15 years and particularly in my generation, the anointed ‘millennials’.
I’m a believer in the fact that all of us in some way are dealing with the mechanics of a path and way of engaging with the world that we did not choose when we were infants, being most likely thrust upon us by those who raised us. As I’ve grown older, it’s become pretty clear to me that many of us struggle daily, because some of the things we have been taught in the environment from our younger years don’t actually help us live a good life now.
This post is not me telling you what to do, rather it’s a bunch of thoughts and insights that I feel can help you find some understanding in why you operate the way you do, whether that’s in how you think, feel or behave. It’s ultimately about recognising that you have a choice in everything in life and we have the power to change anything.
Ah, the mystical employee experience, the mainstay objective that sits on every yearly HR strategy like a good old tick box.
Before the pandemic, most organisations looked at building a better employee experience as a nice to have. It was the thing you’d say you value most to the external world to prop up your employer brand. But, most likely the element you least invested in or understood.
The term “employee experience” kinda felt like one of those HR buzzwords that people love to use at company events, right?Continue reading “Why your employee experience is important now more than ever”
