I have written/spoken a few times lately about how I don’t fit into a box, and that’s true, I fit into many boxes, based on my education, experiences, and areas of expertise. Here is a list*, in alphabetical order:
Abstract Expressionist Accountant Agile Implementer of Solutions Analyst Artist Author Big Picture Seer Business Analyst Business Process Analyst Business-Technology Aligner Catalyst Challenger of assumptions Change Manager Chaos Organiser Coach Collaborator Communicator Community Builder Connector Consultant Creative Critical Thinker Culture Changer Decision Maker Design Thinker Digital Transformer Executer Facilitator Financial Analyst Follower Gamification Consultant Human’s First Advocate Implementer Influencer Information Technology Process Consultant Innovator ITSM Master Knowledge Management Expert Knowledge Manager Leader Learner Listener Manager Marketer MBA Mentor Networker Organiser Painter Planner Problem Solver Process Analyst Process Designer Process Thinker Product Manager Program Manager Project Manager Public Speaker Questioner Realiser of Potential Sales Person Solopreneur Strategist Strategy Developer/Creator/Implementer Taxonomy Developer Teacher Team Builder Technology Person Technology Requirements Analyst
I’ve decided, at least for now, to call the new series: Brick Wall Chats because of the background I’m using in the videos. People seem to like the background because it’s colourful and different and interesting, which is why I liked it too.
Right now (June 3, 2019), I have recorded 15 videos and will release one per week. The topics range from the business to the personal: metrics and digital transformation to how I have come to be doing the work that I am doing.
On February 5, 2019 Doug Shaw and I did a webinar with Jo Cook from Training Journal. We had a great conversation about how to use different forms of creativity to help your organisation do things differently.
