In October 2011 I posted a Blog titled Scary Times. It was a play on Halloween and the issues facing seniors in high school as they navigated the world of changes ahead…college, work, sports. Issues that were relevant. Perhaps scary, but also exciting. Fast forward to today, Scary Times II.
Scary Times II is certainly not aligned with Halloween this time, and it is not targeting seniors in high school. It targets everyone. Those in high school as a sophomore or older, college students, and those in the work world already. COVID-19 has made our world a very different place. As a result, it has caused all of us to rethink how we interact with each other, how we address learning, and how we continue in the world of work. Yes, it is scary.
But, Scary Times can encourage us to spend time reflecting, to engage, educate and empower ourselves to move beyond where we were and into something more. Who are YOU? Are you an Extrovert? Do you need diversity in your work, interactions with others, and a common goal? Are you an Introvert? Need more time to yourself for reflection and recharging? Are you diagnostic, analytic, experiential or consultative in your Problem Solving style? How does that fit in your world of work? If you are not sure, maybe it’s time to find out the answers to these and lots more questions that can guide you in your next steps.
The world of work is changing more rapidly that anyone expected. Will you be ready? Now is the time to take a Highlands Ability Battery and find out your Best Fit opportunities.
