[Short Thread] So I just went to drop my car off for a service, then jumped in the courtesy bus to get a lift back home.

The guy looked like he was having a bad day so what did I do?
I told him a few jokes to break the ice, then he started telling me about his son & where he's taking his #career.

His whole mood completely flipped up on it's head as we drove through the city - it was incredible!

So how can you take this into your life? Well..
Instead of always making things about yourself, let OTHERS speak.

Analyse how people think, then give value

See I took the time to listen to him & it literally turned his day around - that's what really makes a difference - just listen to people and let them tell their story 🎉

It's time for my 2018 #design recap! Less writing, more @ideaplatz speaking and podcasts, and a job transition to boot. I expanded my public talks to include not just VUI but conversational UI, artificial intelligence, and improv for creativity. Here's my year... 1/
My first 2018 post was aimed at #VUI #design job seekers. Rather than reply to a series of 1:1 inquiries, I look for patterns to inspire published pieces. A VERY common question: "Any tips for my Amazon/Google/etc voice design interview?" #voiceFirst medium.com/@muppetaphrodi… 2/
In February 2018, I had the honor (+challenge!) of following @MrAlanCooper on the #Ixd18 mainstage. In my early days on the #EchoLook, I daydreamed about speaking to @ixdconf attendees about that product #design process. A literal #ux dream come true. 3/ vimeo.com/254533851

I wanted to share my experience on an important topic that I have been asked about a few times, organizational mobility for career advancement.

#mentoring #career
What I mean is joining an organization in one role (maybe not your ideal one) with the idea of moving internally to a better role over time.
If you are looking to transition to a new role, this can be a viable approach. I am not saying it will work for everyone, but it was my story and one I have seen over and over.

Let's start our #GEMChats this week. The topic of this week is #student #entrepreneurship!

We'll discuss these three factors in the poll options below as well as replies to the poll 🧐🧐🧐 Let's take this forward!
#Students? And #entrepreneurship? Is that even a good combination?

Especially when you read that the famous student entrepreneurs like Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg are all dropouts!!!

Can students not only run a #business while studying but also be #successful at it?
Taking a different perspective at this is that while these billionaires are college dropouts, the #idea for the #business all came about when they were in #college! As a young #student, your ideas have a chance at being fresh and can be developed through stringent planning!

YOU WILL HAVE MORE THAN ONE IDEA | I spoke to a young man recently about a business deal. He was more concerned about the money he would make than the opportunities he would gain. #Thread #Ideas #Entrepreneurship #Career
Sometimes when I talk to entrepreneurs, they seem obsessed with people stealing their ideas. They assume they will have only one good idea in life. They think a single deal will be their only source of prosperity.
Employees do the same. They hold on to jobs desperately. Some embezzle funds because they are not confident of another chance to "hammer".

Twelve years of trying to grok #strengths approach and helping others apply it to their #career situations has taught a few things that others seem to miss or be misled by other flavors so here is a thread
I like to call it the Buckingham-Gallup strengths approach as elucidated in two books: Now Discover Your Strengths (NDYS) and Go Put Your Strengths to Work (GPYSTW)
I am not super-impressed by the credentialing around this by Gallup or other variants from Marcus. There are two other flavors that are very different and not as useful for career thinking
