Many of us have sideline projects and interests that capture our attention and engage our minds and our hearts.
What if we could be the same with our day to day work?
In this short video, I share a couple of my sideline projects that not only inspire me but have been CRITICAL in picking up new skills for working in a modern workplace and becoming much more adept at social networking, building community, public speaking, relationship building, video storytelling and social learning.
Too often organisations discount what their people are doing outside of work or lament that there’s a talent shortage. This is a pity because they’re only getting half the picture of the true capabilities of their employees (and not to mention, not understanding their motivation and or what engages their people).
- What knowledge, skills, capabilities and talents are relatively unknown and hidden in their organisation?
- How can these be applied to solving organisational issues and problems?
- Have you got skills that your organisation can use right now?
Let me know what you think.
