Resilience vs Stupidity
In one of the Circle sessions recently, we dedicated a large part of the conversation to knowing your limits, and the point at which resilience morphs into stupidity. The group looked at the subject from many angles, including how they're currently feeling about their roles and whether there's a scientific approach to knowing when to move on. In a time where stress levels are very high across the industry, it's not surprising that there's a lot of fear about making the wrong decision - we covered themes like self-doubt in decision making, making sense of the fear of what the future holds if you make the wrong call and how to weigh up the pros and cons of sticking it out.
If you're looking for support in making a big career decision like this, do drop me a line - I'm happy to help.
That's it, until next week! On with the links..

[From 101 Ways] "Is It Time to Retire Digital Transformation?" On Demand Webinar
Names do matter and "digital transformation" is one that shows little sign of going away. For many tech teams, this can be a problem. Calling something a transformation raises a particular set of expectations in senior management circles. It can also encourage an old school approach to budgeting, planning and delivery that could be detrimental to the project and its outcome. We think it’s time to retire digital transformation. What do you think?
Watch our latest webinar where we explore the advantages of embracing a new mindset and provide a comprehensive 5-step plan to empower tech leaders in its implementation including an expert panel discussion.
