It is true that it has been just over a year since my last blog post. What happened? Why did I not continue to write? What was so interesting in my life that I had decided to neglect my blog? The answer is all about discipline, priorities and inspiration. No excuses, just the facts.
Now, the better question to ask would be: Why come back to write on this blog now? Over the past year, I have been concentrating on my career as an incident manager and discovering, yet again, ¨what makes me tick¨ / if you prefer: what am I passionate about.
Like everyone else, I like to feel needed, appreciated and a part of something bigger than myself. Learning has always been a passion for me. I am motivated by all that is new, ¨out of the box¨ and creative.
¨Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.¨ Benjamin Franklin
Like 8, 7 million others, I follow TED Talks on Twitter. There is so much to learn and so little time to do so. Every day, I listen to one video. Just last week, in listen to Rachel Bostman talking about trust. In her short clip, she speaks about how there is something profound in changing our concept of trust. I encourage you to take 20 minutes of your time to listen to her video.
Fascinating talk about the ¨Trust Stack¨ (trust in the idea, the platform and ultimately trust the user). She demystifies blockchain, and brings modern examples of trust such as the phenomenon of Bla Bla Car, Uber and Airbnb.
Leason Lean: Trust enables change and innovation
I know that the only way to engage someone, to have him/her innovate and bring creative changes, you have first to show trust and faith in their capacity to succeed.
And the end of the day, it is all about trust. It does not matter if you think you are the greatest, you need to inspire trust in others. Know exactly where you want to be. Do we share the same reality?
