Last year at this time, none of us imagined how much change we would experience in work in 2020? To get a handle on it, I invite you write a personal 6-word story to capture your work experiences in the first half of 2020.
We may achieve a certain sense of comprehension or control over our experience when we transform experience into story. It may offer us a new perspective or a simple structure for a deeper more salient understanding of what has been going through. Creativity thrives with constraints and the constraint of capturing your work over 5 months with 6 words if a definite constraint.
We have been asking registrants of our June 11th Poppulo webinar on learn, adapt, and recover to write their 6-word story after registering. Here are 2 examples:
- Thought I might catch up; baloney.
- We can rise to the challenge.
And here is my 6-word story: Almost retired, pandemic pandemonium – I’m needed.”
In 2009 I asked members of the Employee Experience & Engagement Network to compose a six-word story of engagement. We turned it into a small book. I offer you this e-book as inspiration for you to write your own story of 2020. http://www.davidzinger.com/wp-content/uploads/Employee-Engagement-Six-Word-ebook.pdf
So, what is your six-word story?
I invite you to join me this Thursday June 11th for the webinar: Learn, Adapt, & Transform for the New Work Reality: https://bit.ly/35W3MlJ
