- Mindfulness: This is the practice of becoming more fully aware of, and focused on, what’s taking place within and around you. It’s concentration and compassion on steroids.
- Learning Agility: Learning agility is seeking new and challenging experiences, receiving and applying feedback along the way, and reflecting on what you’re learning.
- Storytelling: This is the art and science of influencing others to realize or feel something and take specific action. It’s not just telling great stories but being a great story that helps others.
Here’s our challenge: We’re inundated with demands, information, and endless options, within a volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world. We’re distracted, and this situation worsens every minute as demands proliferate and more information and choices become available. We can cut through this clutter, however, and reduce the noise by developing these strengths cited above and focusing on what matters the most to us and others.
