“I work with organisations that want to inspire people and fill them with optimism and self-belief so they confidently race towards fresh possibilities.
It’s 2020 and perpetual change is inescapable. Sadly, the unrelenting pace of change can make some people reluctant to embrace new ways of working. It turns out that getting people to try something new in a sea of uncertainty is really hard.
While working at Microsoft, I discovered that most of us are “ReadyAlready™” for the accelerating transformations coming our way. It’s such a shame so few people realise this, and many more give up trying. Yet when we can summon genuine positivity and optimism, our self-imposed limitations often fade away.
