Message from Kelly:
I'm preparing a presentation for a meeting and I'm hoping you can help me! I'd like to do a run through to see if I'm making sense.
This presentation is on the Cynefin framework, (picture below) which is a way of describing the context around and approach to different problems. If you have 15 minutes to join me at the conference table at noon next Thursday, 10/30, I'll spend 10 minutes talking, and then maybe you can tell me what I'm missing! I'll even bring cookies.
Despite a heavy downpour we had a nice turnout for our meetup on Wednesday 10/22.
Clark was our host. Maggie, Ben, Ross, Kerrie, Stefan, Kelly, Raeann and Christine shared a little about their current work.
Ben is looking for a starter software developer position. Kerrie is helping an author to self publish a book about marine engine efficiency, Stefan is getting ready for his trip to Italy, Kelly is thinking about a branding relaunch as a media company (currently web development), Raeann is getting into her busy season working on an e commerce platform for her designer cards, while Clark is building up his coaching business, running with clients in the very early mornings. Christine had to leave early to go on a field trip with her 1st grader.
Maggie is a business coach and offers a series of classes on entrepreneurship and one on how to 'Define your Marketing Pyramid: Identify Your Clientele'
Kelly, B.J., Raeann, Christine, Kerrie, Ben (for a short moment) and host Clark met for lunch. After introductions we shared goals and what makes them successful. Attaching a value and priority in your life makes a goal more doable. If you set a goal, or have someone set a goal for you, that isn't important and the outcome isn't valued by you, the process to accomplish that goal will most like fail or take a lot of effort.
Some of us a very goal driven, some have no problem coming up with lots of goals, but are not so interested in following up on them, some goals end up on to do lists that are dragged from week to week and finally drop off or disappear.
Knowing about your values and then setting goals that go with these is a much easier and healthier approach. Try it!
