Is disruption the right way?
For the last, almost 20 years, I’ve had the honour of working with people from all backgrounds, diverse businesses and charities to nurture people with barriers into work.
In addition to my employment work, I also deliver accredited mental health first aider courses and proactive wellbeing courses.
I’ve been commissioned to design a variety of workshops from self and team empowerment to finding your purpose, managing fears, building resilience, identifying and creating your future path, elevator pitch, your personal branding and many more.
Throughout, I’ve used the thread of inclusivity, respect and humour to give ownership to delegates on their learning journey.
This week, I’ve dropped into various workshops on the Playful Creative Summit. Some speakers have been more inspiring than others. I’ve learned something new everyday.
The summit runs until Friday this week. Many of the speakers videos are free. Take a look if you are interested – http://www.playfulcreativesummit.com.
I composed the image below to provoke employers to consider how vibrant their learning and development platforms are and how better they could be.
There is no reason why the same tool could not be used for our personal lives.
What do you think? Time for us all to become a little more disruptive in how we do things?
One of the speakers used the term ‘become more pirate’ explaining pirates were ordinary people who had to be resourceful to make a life for themselves and take on the might of the world’s navy’s. Of course some tales of pirates are unlawful but all are resourceful. So I might just think of myself as a ‘disruptive pirate’ in my training programmes now!
