Helen Tupper: Hello, I am Helen. Sarah Ellis: And I am Sarah. Helen Tupper: And that is the Squiggly Careers podcast. Every week, we share concepts for motion and instruments to check out that we hope will show you how to, and it all the time helps us, navigate Squiggly Careers with a bit extra confidence, readability and management. Sarah Ellis: And this week, we thought we’d take ten actions from our prime ten most listened-to podcasts of all time. So, this isn’t a kind of episodes, earlier than you cease listening, the place there is no new content material, these ones that may be a bit irritating the place it is similar to, “Here is an edit of issues that we have achieved earlier than”. We’re recording this stay everybody, and there are ten concepts for motion that we will be speaking by. However what we’ve got checked out is, since we’ve got began the podcast, I do not even know what 12 months that might be, Helen, have you learnt how way back that might be? Helen Tupper: 2017 was after we began the podcast. Sarah Ellis: Crikey, that does really feel like a lifetime in the past! We glance again on the most listened-to since then, so what are we, over 300 episodes in. Now, barely confusingly, essentially the most listened-to podcast that we have ever achieved is definitely referred to as Ten Actions to Speed up Your Profession Growth! So, clearly we’re not going to speak about that one as a result of that might be a repeat, so what we have taken is the subsequent ten after that, we will in a short time, for every of them, it should be fairly quick, sharp and particular, we hope; so, what the subject is, provide you with one coach-yourself query and one concept for motion for every of them. So hopefully, it will simply really feel like a extremely good, little bit of a refresh, little bit of a reset on issues that we all know are essential to a lot of folks as a result of a lot of folks have listened to them. Helen Tupper: And we will preserve it fairly pacey as a result of there are ten to undergo, however it should all be summarised within the PodSheet for you. So, PodSheets are the downloadable summaries that we do of each episode. You possibly can all the time get them from PodMail, which is a weekly electronic mail we ship, you’ll be able to join that on the web site; or on the web site below Podcast, you’ll be able to simply click on on the related episode and you may additionally be capable of obtain it from the episode there as properly. So, I will go first, and in at primary was our episode on tips on how to discover work/life match, which we expect is a greater approach of speaking concerning the totally different stuff you’re placing collectively than the thought of stability, the place all the things’s speculated to be in excellent alignment. The coach-yourself query that we advocate you replicate on is, “What have I achieved earlier than that has improved my work/life match?” And the thought for motion that we expect is beneficial so that you can take is to consider “we match” versus “I match”. Usually, after we’re interested by this concept of labor/life match, it turns into fairly I-centric so, “What can I do otherwise?” However in actuality, our skill to make work/life work collectively has a lot of interdependencies with different folks, like your companion, should you’ve obtained youngsters possibly the people who find themselves concerned in childcare, possibly your colleagues selecting issues up for you. There’s typically lots of people which can be concerned in making your puzzle items be just right for you. So, the thought for motion right here is to think about who’re the three most essential folks to assist your work/life match, so for instance for me it could be my husband, Gareth; it could be Sarah, who you are speaking to right here now; and it could even be Amanda, who’s the superb one who takes care of my youngsters within the day after I’m doing all issues Squiggly. These three individuals are actually elementary for me to make my work/life match work. I believe it is also actually essential that while you’ve recognized these folks, you ensure that they know the way you respect them, as a result of they’re actually elementary to this match working and it’s important that you just present that appreciation to them, in addition to speaking to them about what that assist may appear like sooner or later to make all these totally different bits of your work and your life match collectively. So for instance, I’d say thanks for Sarah for being so versatile, as a result of there are occasions generally after we swap issues round in our diary, so I’d be particular about that so I might present my appreciation and let her know the way essential that’s for me. After which I’d say, an ask for the long run is perhaps to guard my time after I go on the Peloton, for instance, which is one thing for me that could be a actually essential approach that I nearly have a break between my work and my homelife; there’s one thing that occurs to me on Peloton, which simply offers me that second for me, after I’m not about household and I am not about Squiggly and it is a actually essential time, I believe, for me and my psychological well being. So, asking Sarah to assist me shield that point can be a technique that she might assist me with my work and life match. Sarah Ellis: So, in at quantity two, one-to-ones. I actually just like the vary of matters that we’re speaking about at this time, as a result of we go from actually massive, zoomed-out issues, like work/life match, to one thing actually zoomed in and really particular, which is one-to-ones. So, a coach-yourself query right here is, “What one change might you make to your one-to-one to make them higher for the long run?” I additionally assume this can be a actually nice query to ask your supervisor, so what is the one change that they assume that you would make to make these one-to-ones work higher, as a result of these one-to-ones are two methods; it is about you and your supervisor. So, possibly simply considering a bit about what would you alter, but additionally asking what would they alter. The concept for motion right here is to set your agenda. What we all know from good folks, like Priya Parker, who’s been on the podcast earlier than, is that one of the best causes to get collectively, so she talks concerning the concept of “gatherings”, however one of the best conferences, one of the best conversations all the time have a transparent function. And it is also the most typical purpose that we get annoyed, or issues really feel like a waste of time or not use of our time. So simply interested by, have you ever obtained a transparent format in your one-to-one? That is perhaps one thing that you just agree individually together with your supervisor, or it might be one thing that as a crew, you will have a format that you just all check out collectively. The ins and outs of what you discuss is perhaps totally different, however you all have a framework that you just’re attempting out to see, “Does this work for all of us?” For instance, one of many issues that we have been attempting as a crew actually just lately, solely over the previous I’d say month or so, is an agenda that begins with one thing referred to as “focus finder”, which is the place all of us share mainly one precedence for every week, like what’s completely prime of the record. It is fairly a great way to begin as a result of it makes you do some trade-offs, it makes you be selective. Then we discuss commitments for both shoppers, or possibly for collaborators, so something that we all know we have to ship on. Then we’ve got pink flags and generally even recurring pink flags, and people pink flags might be something like, “I am feeling overwhelmed and I want some assist”, or it might be a pink flag, “I’ve noticed there is a potential situation right here that we have to resolve”; after which looking-ahead record. So, the main focus finder, commitments, pink flag is all fairly right here and now. Trying forward simply encourages all of us in our crew conversations and our one-to-one conversations to look that bit additional forward, simply into the subsequent week or the week after to say, “Simply be aware. We all know we have this coming” or, “It isn’t distant till we have this supply date, so are we working again from that to verify we ship all the things we have to?” One good further useful resource on that is, HBR have simply launched a brand new article all about benefiting from your one-to-one conferences. What I favored concerning the article is the man who wrote it has researched one-to-ones for years and it is a actually substantial quantity of those who he is included in his research. However the recommendation and the insights are actually sensible. I really feel like one-to-ones is a kind of the place should you get the good fundamentals proper, you actually set your self up for fulfillment, so issues like should you’re a supervisor, do not cancel one-to-ones on the final minute; keep in mind it is your one-to-one, it isn’t your supervisor’s one-to-one; simply all of these issues that I believe generally we regularly want a little bit of a reset with one-to-ones, as a result of possibly they drift, or maybe we began with good intentions after which maybe now they don’t seem to be fairly what we want them to be. Helen Tupper: In at quantity three is our episode on tips on how to cease being a people-pleaser at work, which is one thing that we all know a lot of folks wrestle with at instances, and it will get in the way in which of their progress. So, the coach-yourself query right here so that you can replicate on is, “How typically do I do one thing in my day that is only for me?” And the thought for motion that will help you, should you really feel like people-pleasing is perhaps holding you again, is throughout how do you say no properly? And there are a number of various things that you may experiment with right here to seek out out what feels genuine for you. The very first thing can be, when anyone asks a request of you and you are feeling like people-pleasing is perhaps beginning to creep in, as a substitute counsel different individuals who might assist. Or one other factor that you would do is counsel when you would assist, if it isn’t now, so you do not really feel like you do not have to surrender what else you is perhaps engaged on with a view to give them the assist they is perhaps searching for. Or the third factor that you are able to do, as a part of saying no properly, is explaining and involving folks in your priorities, so the trade-offs that you just may need to make to have the ability to tackle the factor that they could need you to do. And the way in which that we advocate doing that is utilizing “if, then”. For instance, if Sarah stated, “Helen, I would actually respect it should you might assist me by writing this text”, I’d, if I used to be in people-pleasing mode, simply say, “Yeah, after all, no drawback”. However really, if that was going to place a strain on me and my workload, it could be simpler if I stated to Sarah, “Okay, I want to assist. There are these different issues that I am engaged on in the intervening time”, and I’d clarify what they’re after which say to Sarah, “so if I helped you to write down that article, then we would want to maneuver that deadline again”, after which, “What’s the resolution we wish to make?” so that you make it extra collective, fairly than simply taking a lot of different folks’s priorities into your workload. Sarah Ellis: In at quantity 4 is exploring development prospects. The coach-yourself query right here is, “What would I prefer to be true about my Squiggly Profession in 12 months’ time that is not true at this time?” And our concept for motion is a instrument to check out that we describe as “scanning”. So, the way in which that scanning works is that you’re utilizing job descriptions as information in your growth. And I would advocate that you just discover 5 jobs that you just’re simply actually inquisitive about. You are not making use of for these roles, you’ve got not obtained to fret about whether or not you’ve got obtained any of the talents or the experiences to truly do these jobs, we’re simply borrowing the job descriptions for some time. So, take these job descriptions, problem your self to go far and vast; this isn’t a time to remain in your lane, this can be a time to go, “I ponder what would occur if I labored in this type of firm or that sort of business” or, “I’ve all the time been fascinated or simply intrigued by what occurs in hospitals or what it could be prefer to work in a college”, no matter it is perhaps. And as soon as you’ve got obtained all these job descriptions, do some highlighting, circling, underlining of the phrases and statements that stand out to you. Usually, while you get these job descriptions, it will not be all the things within the job description that appeals to you. Perhaps there was a sure paragraph; possibly you notice that the identical phrase comes up 4 or 5 instances. And I believe the extra you do that, and we have each achieved this a great deal of instances through the years and we preserve doing this as a result of we regularly use this train in our workshops, so I am all the time searching for new jobs. I simply go, “I will simply spend 5 minutes and see what new jobs are there”. And I believe what’s so helpful about it’s, it offers you clues and reinforces the extra self-awareness you will have, what your must-haves are, wherever your profession takes you. So, within the context of all of the uncertainty and alter that we’ve got, there aren’t many constants, there aren’t many issues that we are able to preserve coming again to. We have described it earlier than as your profession standards. So for instance, each time I do that, it would not matter what job I have a look at, it is by no means careers that’s the constant theme, it is all the time concepts, it is all the time creating. There’s all the time phrases like, “ranging from scratch”, so I simply know that that is prime of my must-haves. No matter I do, wherever I’m going in my Squiggly Profession, that is actually, actually essential to me. As a small aspect profit, I do assume doing this train will increase your confidence that all of us have transferable skills. So, although you are not making use of for these roles, you will assume, “One in all my strengths is, I am good at constructing relationships with a lot of totally different folks, and you may begin to see that ability is one thing that pops up in a lot of totally different roles, in a lot of totally different locations. And I believe it simply reminds us that we have all obtained a great deal of potential and we have a lot of choices and alternatives, and we won’t assist however get a bit blinkered and nearly get very centered on what we do at this time. So, I believe it simply expands your horizons and builds your perception a bit as properly. Helen Tupper: In at quantity 5 is all about tips on how to be supervisor. A coach-yourself query so that you can replicate on right here is, “How have I helped another person succeed of their profession?” and I believe this can be a actually essential query, as a result of although the episode was on tips on how to be supervisor, I nonetheless assume there’s quite a bit that you may be taught from administration that you should use even should you’re not a supervisor. And the thought for motion builds on this as a result of it is all about being a strengths spotter and a strengths sponsor. So, strengths recognizing is the place you proactively determine one thing that you just assume another person does properly and also you allow them to find out about it. So, I’d say to Sarah, “Sarah, one of many issues that I believe you do brilliantly is give clear and particular suggestions that helps folks to enhance”. So, that might be me telling Sarah a few energy that she won’t pay attention to in herself. After which as soon as you’ve got achieved some energy recognizing, you are able to do some energy sponsoring, which is the place you ensure that different individuals are conscious of these strengths that you just see in that individual. So, I’d discuss Sarah up, for instance, in conversations the place individuals are discussing folks’s skills, or discussing different alternatives, and I’d successfully be a optimistic reinforcer of what Sarah does properly in that state of affairs or dialog that she’s not in. And these are issues which can be good so that you can do as a supervisor, since you’ll enhance somebody’s alternatives and the attention that different folks have concerning the work they do properly; however you do not simply must be a supervisor to be a strengths spotter and a energy sponsor, we are able to all try this for one another. Sarah Ellis: And we do have, from earlier this 12 months, a extremely good, easy useful resource on what being a energy spotter appears like, so we’ll ensure that’s within the PodSheet, as a result of I do know that was actually well-liked, however I additionally respect you may need missed it alongside the way in which, and I discovered that actually useful; you understand, these sources that you just preserve recommending and coming again to. I believe that is typically a clue that they’re helpful and I believe it is a actually easy factor that we might all do much more of in 2023. So, in at quantity six is assertiveness, and your coach-yourself query right here is, “When do I wish to be extra assertive at work?” So, is it with a specific individual, a specific assembly, a specific mission? Often I believe after we’re interested by assertiveness, we do not wish to assume common or in a obscure approach, as a result of that always would not assist us; whereas after we begin to consider, “When are these moments after I’m not as assertive as I want to be?” Our concept for motion right here is about assertiveness shortcuts. So typically, I believe, after we wish to be extra assertive, we’re typically put within the spot ultimately; possibly somebody asks us a query we hadn’t anticipated, and it’s typically that; possibly we simply really feel a bit intimidated by somebody, or somebody is simply very totally different to us, and we lose that sense of confidence and readability that we’re aiming for. And the error that we would make in interested by how we resolve that’s considering, “I simply want to organize extra”. That is the usual response to, “I get actually nervous after I’m placed on the spot and I lose assertiveness. I simply must do extra work beforehand”. However that feels actually unrealistic, I believe, to practise in order that we’re excellent each time, and we do not all the time have that luxurious of having the ability to be so ready that we’ll know all the things. I am undecided that it is that helpful as a aim to set ourselves. As a substitute, I believe what’s rather more useful is considering, while you do get placed on the spot or in these moments the place you do not really feel as assertive as you want to, what are a number of the shortcuts when it comes to how you would reply, as a result of any shortcuts are actually useful for our mind; it offers us a little bit of a default behaviour to fall again on after we is perhaps panicking a bit bit, while you’re having that second of being like, “What do I do now; what do I say now?” And should you can simply practise a few of these shortcuts, I’ve definitely discovered them actually useful. So, we could say now I am in a gathering and Helen has requested me a query and I simply assume, “I do not know the reply to that”, or possibly I begin to reply and then you definitely lose your approach midway by and you are like, “Oh no, I do not sound very authoritative now”. And I believe simply interested by in that second, what would you possibly do otherwise? Firstly, if somebody asks you a query and you do not know the reply, it’s all the time okay to say that you do not know the reply, however you may wish to go a bit additional than that, particularly should you’re attempting to be extra assertive. So, you may wish to do one thing like say, “That is a extremely helpful query, thanks”, thank somebody for the query, after which really attempt to contain, fairly than resolve, so contain everyone in that assembly, “Has anybody obtained any expertise of how which may work that they might share with me, like assist me perceive a bit extra about what that might feel and look like?” and that is perhaps that one who’s requested you that query or it might be another person. You do not have to really feel like, you understand, after we get placed on the spot, I believe it feels just like the highlight is on us. I believe there, take into consideration how you would share the highlight with different folks, in order that’s one shortcut approach. One factor that I’ve undoubtedly achieved earlier than is summarise again to somebody what they’ve heard, often because I’m barely enjoying for time and I believe that’s okay. So, possibly somebody’s talked to you about one thing or they’ve described one thing and also you’re possibly a bit caught otherwise you’re a bit uncertain; it may be helpful to simply say, “That is so fascinating, Helen. So, simply to test that I am understanding your suggestion correctly, you are saying that we might do [X and Y] Am I lacking something?” or, “What have I missed there?” or, “Is there anything that you just assume is essential for me to think about?” Simply by doing that fast abstract again after which asking a query again, once more it begins to really feel extra conversational in that second, fairly than feeling like one thing that would really feel a bit extra like a query, reply, bordering on extra of that interview strain second. So I believe determine for you, what might a few of these assertiveness shortcuts appear like, however that do not all the time imply that you must put together extra. Helen Tupper: I actually just like the summarising again; it is undoubtedly one which I take advantage of and feels fairly a pure approach of me having that assertiveness in that state of affairs as properly. So, in at quantity seven, constructing on what Sarah was speaking about there with questions, is tips on how to ask higher questions at work. The coach-yourself query, on asking higher questions, it should all make sense, everybody, I promise, is, “What sort of questions am I naturally good at asking?” So for instance, Sarah is good at asking “why” questions that actually make us think about the larger image of why we’re doing issues; and I’m naturally extra good at asking “how” questions like, “How might we make this occur? How might we transfer this ahead?” These kinds of questions take us extra into the element of doing, so it naturally performs to our strengths. It is also fairly useful that all of us work on one mission collectively and each come at it with totally different questions. However the concept for motion right here is to actually begin to develop your query vary as a result of there are some various kinds of questions that you may ask, and the extra ready you’re to determine what query sort to make use of when, the higher ready you’re to know totally different conditions and provide you with totally different options. So, listed below are 4 totally different questions so that you can develop in your query vary. The primary is zoom-out questions, so one which makes you think about the larger image. That may sound one thing like, “How does this relate to our crew goals?” So as an instance I’ve dived into the element, Sarah may assist me zoom out by interested by one thing a bit larger, our crew goals. The second query is an adjoining query. That is the place you be a part of the dots between some various things you’re discussing. So, as an instance I am speaking about beginning a brand new mission; an adjoining query that Sarah may ask me can be, “What would the affect of doing that mission be on the advertising and marketing crew or the finance crew?” as a way to see issues different than simply the one that is perhaps engaged on that mission. The third sort of query is an unlocking query. That is actually good should you’re going spherical in circles or getting a bit caught, and it is the place you employ a query to herald a brand new little bit of perception or a brand new bit of data. So this may sound like, “How would our competitor” or a unique division or a unique operate, “How would X strategy this case?” and it actually helps you simply think about issues from a unique perspective. The fourth query that may show you how to to develop your questioning vary is a constraint query. That is actually good when it feels prefer it’s not possible to maneuver ahead; your price range’s been lower, the deadline’s been moved ahead, and this query is a, “How may we…?” as a result of typically you may get caught within the, “It will not work, it isn’t doable”, and the, “How may we [or] how might it…?” might help you to get unstuck from these harder conditions. Sarah Ellis: So, in at quantity eight is tips on how to negotiate for what you want. The coach-yourself query right here is, “What abilities do I have already got that can assist me to barter for what I want?” For instance right here, I believe typically we expect we’ve not obtained the talents to barter as a result of we have a look at negotiation as a ability and we simply assume, “I am simply not good at that”; whereas, should you begin to break it down a bit, should you’re empathetic, you are actually good at placing your self in different folks’s sneakers. That is helpful for negotiation. For those who’re imaginative, you will be good at situation planning. That is actually helpful for negotiation. That is why I simply need everyone to — I believe everyone is healthier at negotiation than they provide themselves credit score for. However maybe we’ve got some possibly barely dated or ladderlike views of, “What does good negotiation appear like?” and it feeling very aggressive and fairly win/lose. However I believe should you begin to join the dots between the talents you’ve got obtained after which how might they be helpful for negotiation, I wager everyone listening is healthier than they provide themselves credit score for. The concept for motion right here known as “no-go, good, higher, greatest”. Earlier than beginning any negotiation, I believe it is actually useful to know what’s your no-go, what’s good, what’s higher and what are your greatest outcomes. So, that is basically doing a little bit of scenario-planning earlier than you even begin. I believe by writing them down, so not simply interested by what they is perhaps, however writing them down, it implies that you do not lose your approach if conversations turn into tough or emotional, or should you get new info or alternate options. It does not imply that you just’re not open to these, however they are a helpful reminder to maintain coming again to to assume, “Okay, now that I’ve obtained this new info, what does that imply when it comes to my no-go or my good? The place am I in the intervening time when it comes to this scale?” Perhaps it looks like you’re letting go of 1 factor, nevertheless it feels okay, since you’re nonetheless getting a variety of what was in your higher choice. However letting go of issues can really feel exhausting, so I believe by having these items able to go, it helps you to stick with what issues most to you, what’s most essential to you. And in addition, simply as a reminder, the best negotiations are usually not win/lose; one of the best ones are the place everyone looks like they have to consequence, the place they really feel win/win. Really, I used to be speaking to a extremely fascinating companion that we work with the opposite week, they usually have been saying to me that they’ve a extremely clear precept when it comes to how they work with companions, that each time they might be speaking about contracts, a extremely traditional space the place you may negotiate, they’re very clear that they need everyone to really feel like they’ve to a extremely good decision as a part of that course of, they usually actually care about that and simply how essential that’s, which I believed was actually refreshing. So, simply have these eventualities able to go and I believe it should simply set you up for fulfillment. Helen Tupper: In at quantity 9 is tips on how to handle your monkeys, which could really feel like a really unusual matter, however monkeys are successfully the duties that that you must do and the problem fairly often is that the duties that that you must do can really feel a bit overwhelming, as a result of you end up taking up different folks’s duties, or creating heaps extra for your self too. So, the coach-yourself query right here that will help you handle your monkeys is, “How typically do I really feel like my to-do record is being managed by another person?” The concept for motion that will help you is to consider how one can assist, however not undertake the monkey. So, we could say Sarah got here to me and stated, “Helen, we have to type the web site out?” I imply, Sarah’s very prone to say one thing like that to me! I is perhaps like, “Okay, that could be a monkey, successfully” and I would be like, “Proper, okay, I will put a plan collectively and I will come to speak to you”. My preliminary response is perhaps to take that monkey on, as a result of Sarah’s recognized it. Sarah may not likely have meant for me to take the monkey, however I’d simply undertake it in a short time. As a substitute, what can be simpler is for me to possibly get curious, so that might be nearly earlier than committing, get curious, “Okay, what do you imply; what is the precedence; when would that have to be achieved by?” ask some questions so I can get a bit bit extra information, perceive a bit bit extra about what is perhaps driving that time from Sarah. After which, as soon as I’ve obtained that info, I might then say to Sarah, “Okay, how might I show you how to to maneuver that ahead?” So, I am not attempting to say, “Off you go” and depart Sarah with it alone; I am attempting to be supportive however I am additionally, fairly assertively, not taking that monkey on for myself. That’s typically, since you’ve obtained the knowledge, you are extra conscious of what is going on on, however you may as well simply be a bit bit managed about the way you reply to it as properly. Sarah Ellis: And as anyone who does this rather a lot, my remark is it should in all probability sluggish issues down, so taking this strategy does sluggish issues down. In case you are somebody who adopts a lot of monkeys in the intervening time, in all probability since you’re attempting to be useful, typically with actually good optimistic intent, however then you definitely turn into a bottleneck and your to-do lists get actually lengthy, it’s fairly helpful I believe to remind your self, within the second it should really feel exhausting, since you’ll in all probability assume, “Effectively, I might repair this quick. By simply doing this, I can get this sorted”, so it should really feel slower and possibly within the second, barely extra irritating. However within the medium time period and fairly shortly, it should prevent time, but additionally you’re serving to different folks to assist themselves as properly. So, I all the time remind myself of that. Usually, after I’m providing assist, however equally not adopting that monkey, it typically would not really feel nice in that very particular second, however we’ve got to stay with that as a result of we all know it is price it. Our closing one, in at quantity ten, is when to steer and when to comply with. The coach-yourself query right here is, “What’s one mission I am engaged on the place it is useful for me to comply with; and what’s one mission I am engaged on when it is useful for me to steer?” so once more, simply being actually clear about while you may wish to transfer modes; following versus main. And the thought for motion right here is main versus following ability spikes. So, that will help you to maneuver these modes to adapt and have the agility that all of us must have, I believe, no matter what job we do, all of us spend a while main and a while following, I believe it is useful to know, what are the totally different abilities that you just wish to spike in while you’re main versus following, as a result of your abilities are your behaviours ought to feel and look totally different while you’re in these totally different modes. This can clearly be distinctive to you and the talents that you just convey, however simply to present you a number of examples. In main mode, a ability spike might be, “I will take the position of summarising actions and outcomes on the finish of a gathering”, so the ability is perhaps summarising. Or, one other main ability is perhaps listening, so that you may assume, “On this mission the place I am in chief mode, I will actually enhance my listening versus speaking ratio, as a result of I see my job as a pacesetter right here to facilitate the dialogue, to not dominate the dialogue”, for instance. In follower mode, a ability spike is perhaps growing your curiosity, or your time spent borrowing brilliance from different locations since you wish to add extra concepts into discussions; you see that as a part of your position in follower mode in that mission is to convey ideas and, “This might be fascinating [or] what about this?” so that you is perhaps extra in creator mode. Helen Tupper: So, we hope you will have discovered that fairly quickfire ten totally different concepts for motion, linked to our prime ten podcasts, helpful and useful. We all know there’s numerous info there, in order we stated, we are going to summarise it within the PodSheet for you, we’ll do an asset that may go on social, which is generally our PodSummary, so you’ll be able to swipe by these items, so there’s a lot of ways in which you’ll replicate on it after you’ve got listened and take motion.
