#1. Share with us 5 things from your experience that helped you grow & become the professional you are today

  • having a mentor who supports you is great and helps you to challenge your ideas and decisions
  • being curious helps you to continuously learn new things
  • teaching others helps you to get better on the topic and you learn how to explain things to others
  • meeting continuously new people to create new ideas and get inspiration
  • having enough rest so that your brain has time for recreation

#2. What challenges will the participants find solutions to during your session at I T.A.K.E Unconference 2017?

[ctt template=”12″ link=”A831F” via=”no” ]With Impact Mapping you will learn an excellent strategic planning technique that helps you to look at your challenges from different angles[/ctt]
If someone wants to have something solved, he often has already a concrete idea in mind and tells you how to implement it.
With changing the focus and looking at the Why, Who, How and the What your final solution might be entirely different compared to the initial suggestion. You will realize that you can use this technique for nearly everything.

#3. Recommend for the participants 3 sources you find inspiration from and would help them better understand you

  • Learn from and with others, by getting involved in local / international practitioners communities. For example,  we run in Zurich a monthly Software Craftsmanship Meetup with very diverse topics
  • Attend conferences to get inspired by the talks and workshops, as well as the discussions with participants and other speakers.
  • Take time for yourself, relax, free your mind and new ideas and thoughts will pop up automatically!
