Give good face - show a sign

Lynne Cazaly

Our world of online meetings serves up screen after screen of faces. You might even wonder if someone’s screen is frozen. Have they even moved? But we’re focusing and listening intently, making sense of the information, thinking, analyzing, processing. And our faces show it. Thinking. Working. Connecting dots. Imagining. As comedians, speakers and theatrical performers know, audience members who ‘give good face’ are such a blessing.

How adaptable we are

Lynne Cazaly

Some of us like to do the same things the same way. It’s easy. It’s familiar. It’s safe. Others don’t mind a change. they think it’s as good as a holiday! A little bit of difference or newness keeps things interesting. But then happily slip back to the world of sameness for safety. Still others welcome difference, newness, change and evolution. All the time. It allows adventure, improvisation and ingenuity. It stretches us and we learn.

From old ways to better ways of working

Lynne Cazaly

If there’s too much to do and you can’t get through it all, what do you do? A productivity app won’t magically change an entire team or organisation. There’s a bigger change needed, a fundamental shift in how we think about work. Many of the things we do in our daily work are old ways of working. They’re leftovers from when the world - and the work - was quite different. Some of our dated work methods are routines and habits that are hard to break.

Keep an ideas book

Lynne Cazaly

Better still, curate an ideas book. Or even ‘work’ your ideas book. When there are ideas and thoughts swirling about your head, what do you do with them? Try to wrestle with them? Try to ‘sort them out’ or get them into some semblance of order? If your ideas are up there, mixing with all that other stuff like the inner critic, the self doubter, the small player. it may not be the best space for our ideas to prosper or grow.

Change your environment

Lynne Cazaly

You’re not broken. You don’t need fixing. You’re not hopeless. You’re awesome! When we struggle to do something we may get frustrated with or blame ourselves. or others. But neither of us may be at fault. Check your environment, your set up and location, the way you’ve arranged things or set them up. You can tweak and change things. Even the tiniest change might make a big difference for you. And for them. More light. Less space. A different angle. A tidy area.

Get going or slow down

Lynne Cazaly

Do you need something to give you a push along. to get you going? Or do you need something to slow you down? Being stuck ain’t fun. Frozen in possibility and uncertainty. There are plenty of reasons why it’s hard to get going with an idea or project. But equally, running or flying too fast for too long can become a problem too. There are subtle adjustments we can make and actions we can take to get going and get out of inertia. It’s a firing up, an ignition, the acceleration.

How you’re missing out on the gold

Lynne Cazaly

It’s another online meeting. the meeting leader or facilitator announces they’re about to put us into breakout rooms to chat. We get to connect with others, to have a smaller, more intimate conversation and to dive in to a topic or share ideas. But too often the insights from breakout rooms and group activities aren’t noted or are lost, and not reincorporated into the meeting. At other times, we can summarise or distill contributions too far.

Obsessed with a detail

Lynne Cazaly

Missile lock. Focused on a target, excluding everything else. Determined. Sticking with it. This is singleminded focus. And we need it in many situations. Yet our crazy changing world requires us to also lift ourselves up out of that detail and to see the wider view. It doesn’t mean we don’t see that task or project as important. It doesn’t mean we won’t return to working on it. We can get lost, blinded and ignorant to what is important and what the priority is.

How to be original

Lynne Cazaly

In a world of noise, how do you be unique? How do you bring your originality to market through your ideas, products and services? Some people think they don’t have anything unique to say. Others believe their ideas aren’t that special. And others are worried that what they are doing is too similar or close to what others are doing. Copying is unfortunately too common and not cool.

How do you survive to fight the fight another day? In this session, we will discuss important tips for you as a Product Manager dealing with uncertainty. At the same time, we will discuss another important aspect of dealing with uncertainty, and that is building trust, especially while many of us are working remotely or in new or different settings.

Where ideas come from

Lynne Cazaly

Have you experienced cryptomnesia? It’s where we mistakenly believe a current idea is our own creation when in fact we’ve ‘encountered it previously and then forgotten it,’ (American Psychological Association) What the heck?! So some of our blindingly great ideas aren’t that original? Correct. We’ve gathered them from other places, forgotten about them, woken up one day and thought we’ve had a genius moment!
