Research Sunday’s, that’s how we get our creative juices flowing, allowing us to maximise creative executions for our clients.
I have 30 years of working in construction dealing with imposter syndrome in the most obvious way because from the very start I was told I don't fit in.
I don't belong.
I'm in "their" world and I need to conform.
Tried it. Didn't work 😂
Now I'm an award winning, kick-ass, very experienced project manager with a book under my belt as well.
I wrote the book because I could not find something that was actually helpful to a women that doesn't fit the norm, follow the expected stereo-types, I don't even drink coffee.
I know right? shocking!
I got sick of "just believe in yourself" without anyone being able to tell me what that actually looks like and what the process is (the why? is strong within me)
So if anyone can relate, or know someone who can, please grab a copy of my book.
It's got some tough stuff in there, but I've tried to write a guide for people to mentor and coach themselves, because sometimes we come from a background that we think others can't relate, an industry that no-one seems to understand, a place where we struggle to find others like us.
For less than a cup of good coffee (or so I've been told - remember I don't drink it!) you can grab this guide to help with mindset, focus, imposter syndrome and most of all, RESILIENCE - something that has been my greatest asset.
E-version - (also on Amazon) https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/895091
Print version also available.
I would love a review and more importantly, to know if it helps you!
Thanks for reading this far on Sunday. You're awesome.
This is what it looks like when you get an offer over asking 2 hours after posting my North Lawndale listing, followed by a multiple offer situation and then requesting highest and best offer. 🙏🏽
For Learning at work week we spoke to our very own guru of all things Passivhaus & building performance, Sally Godber. Sally runs courses in Passivhaus & low energy building through CarbonLite.
Learning at work to continually improve our skills is hugely important. Learning leads to greater personal & professional wellbeing, it helps us approach what we do differently & more effectively.
Sally told us, “CarbonLite training is aimed at empowering people to do things for themselves rather than relying on specialists. We give them a deep understanding of the subjects we teach. This is the ethos at the heart of every course we provide.” Sally continued “learning something new mid-way through your career can be daunting but very rewarding! People often tell us how it’s helped them reflect on what they’ve done to date, & provides new drive to improve.” Sally advises “when choosing a course it’s important to “learn from people who have a deep understanding, passion & knowledge of their subject.” The team at CarbonLite includes builders, architects, energy assessors, service engineers & more. What’s special is their experience as they’ve been involved in the most forward thinking high performance buildings in the UK!
Many of the team are members of the AECB - The Association for Environment Conscious Building - a network of individuals, educational establishments & companies which promotes sustainable building. The AECB was responsible for some of the UKs first Passivhaus buildings.
Courses offered are for designers & contractors, plus bespoke courses for anyone who’s interested. The focus is delivering excellent comfort & energy performance in buildings. “Achieving Passvhaus is all about quality; you can’t bodge your way around it. Our courses develop both practical & theoretical knowledge,” says Sally.
We say learning at work helps challenge conventions & raise standards, it positively impacts those doing the learning & the community & world beyond them.
What are you learning about & why?
Make change happen. Build better, live better.
