big leap in personal development

Recently I started with a job flirt at work. It is a funky name for ‘experiencing what it is like to work for another team’. Next up there is more on my ‘big leap in personal development’.

I started at the TUX-team. I wanted to experience the engineering spirit within that team, and to get feedback on my soft skills.

The end?

After two sprints (four weeks) it was time to go back to my original squad. I enjoyed the job flirt. I exceeded others’ expectations of my soft skills. How did I do this?

Headspace

Well, I’ve been meditating. Through meditation, I learned to be more patient and relaxed. And when I’m relaxed, that benefits others too. I’m easier to get along with, easier to approach and to collaborate with.

I started meditating on a daily basis eight months ago. I’m using Headspace guide meditations. Andy has done a great job by offering a Westernized approach to meditation.

Buitendoor

Other credits go to the book ‘verbinding door avontuur’. Floor Vullings and Floris Muller have published this long awaited book about the ‘buitendoor‘ approach to team building and collaboration. It was refreshing to read and I could directly apply the material at the job flirt.
