Keep Your Creativity in a Corporate World

in DIY, Say What You Mean

I had a BLAST talking with Andy Epstein about strategies for keeping focus, being creative and leading with your strengths in corporate (or new to you) environments. Please listen in, tell me your experiences, ask questions and share ideas in the comments.

    Great interview, Dyana! Particularly liked party in the corner v. peeing in the corner. Applicable to so many situations. When you feel trapped in an unsupportive system, it's so easy to whine, become sullen, and/or act out. Your examples show how a bit of reframing and redirection of energy can turn that subversive urge into something fun and constructive.

    Job descriptions are tasks, not who you are. Start with your own personal “job” description first. Mine is Spread Joy, Shred Fear and Have Fun. From there any tasks can be fulfilling and meaningful.

    You got that right–it is SO easy to rest in the whingeing. Keep rocking the constructive action–or simply PLAY, whether it's constructive or not! Thank you!

    Ahhhh, straddling worlds. Powerful language. I like the separation of description and identity. Your JoyFearFun statement is rocking my world this morning. Thank you for being a shapeshifting diva. Keep it up!

    Job descriptions are based on objective information obtained through job analysis, an understanding of the competencies and skills required to accomplish needed tasks, and the needs of the organization to produce work.
