Being a bit of a risk taker has been a refreshing source of self-inspiration for me, especially in our ever-evolving local-gone-global world. Possessing an intelligent understanding of the value of whatever I am working on and how it translates to my own set of personal beliefs and sense of self, is very important. People who enjoy and believe in what they do, make for a better and, I venture, a more productive and era-free workforce.
Whether through effort or by a lucky strike here and there, I am grateful that my experiences and talents have a place in today’s new normal, where being armed with skills in various disciplines is a key advantage. Most important too, is my ability to seamlessly apply talents from sector to sector. When I accepted the offer as director of marketing for the renowned PHILADANCO, The Philadelphia Dance Company, I was completely unaware that dance had it's own language! I adapted quickly and applied creative strategies to help promote this amazing institution and its two dance schools! I enjoyed the personal satisfaction of being able to learn a new language.
I think the working world is hungry for people who are capable of establishing their own personal platforms but in ways that elevate others. Maintain a strategic mindset and recruit networks of of people from all walks of life. That's an ideal work-life because it invites the notion of community. Shared community renders the idea of ownership. My mother always insisted that people take better care of things when they own them.
I really get a kick out of reading others "my office" posts on social media. While I didn't take a photo, I once had to pull over while driving to take a phone conference. I recall how energized I felt afterwards. I parked my car by the river near a walking path. My current situation at that moment included delightful co-workers. They were runners, bikers, a group of ducklings and their mother enjoying a slash in the water and the pleasant sounds of the workforce of the future, toddlers in strollers! We are living at such a great time, where technology continues to guide how the work day is being redefined.
Collaborative creativity and positive thoughts often yield yet dynamic action. Through our work, I think we can all engage, exchange and showcase the interesting…..all making a more livable world together! We can all experience the epitome!
