Quote from Doe Zantamata provided by European Leadership on LinkedIn

Had a great Father's Day today. It started with a nice breakfast, with scrambled eggs and pancakes. Then a bicycle tour with my wife and finally a tasty cake for the afternoon Espresso 👍.

Tomorrow a lot of people will have a bridge day, meaning a long weekend, also the schools are closed. I decided to go for work, have some tasks to finish and it is not so busy when most of the colleagues are away from their home office desks.

On 18-Jun-21 we will have the first Learning Day, a whole day reserved for the Finance and Strategy department to learn something new. Either alone or in teams, something you always wanted to look into, but never had the time so far, as we all have very busy schedules. When the whole department is off, there is much less pressure for people to join planned meetings or to finish tasks. Besides participating in the offered training classes there is also the opportunity to offer sessions and workshops for the colleagues. I will host my USP (Unique Selling Point) workshop in the morning, and offer the Elevator Pitch session in the afternoon. Will be fun and a change to my daily activities ...    

Just in case you have a bridge day tomorrow as well, here some interesting material to look at:

  • Make Learning Stick. Best Practices to Get the Most out of Leadership Development
  • The Shadowology Collection Part 2 by Vicent Bal
  • The 3 things that keep people feeling motivated at work
  • Why the first five minutes of a meeting shape its outcome
  • TED Playlist: How to motivate your best self

“If somebody offers you an amazing opportunity but you are not sure you can do it, say yes – then learn how to do it later.” -- Richard Branson, taken from Self Motivation Quotes
