This week, we explore building a work-life integration that works for you. Plus, insights on how to make a career change, challenging the norm and a roundup of curated content including advice from LinkedIn’s co-founder on networking in the digital age.
First up, a deep thought that I originally published in 2018 but still has much relevance in today’s world and explores why we should change the way the game is played with the archaic (in my opinion) work day structure.
I originally wrote this with the intent to challenge others perceptions of what a smarter way of working could look like. One where creativity and productivity are prioritised to each person’s individual style not just captured in a sweeping 9-5 model. You may or may not agree with me on this one.
Here, I do my best to unpack why we should all aim to change the way the game is played and build a better way of working for each of us.
Next, as we continue to navigate these strange times, many of us are re-evaluating our concept of a career and what we want to do with our own.
I wrote this piece from my own experiences of navigating a career change back in 2014. One in which I learnt an incredible amount about what’s really needed to make a successful move and in this piece I share my advice, tips and lessons for others who are thinking about doing the same thing.
Last but most certainly not least, last week I had the opportunity to speak with a group of HR and L&D folk on how to create a reboarding plan for employees post-pandemic. I’m very passionate about this topic (as the recorded talk will show) and you too can hear my thoughts in this video recording of my talk.
