Welcome to 5?
It’s a deeply strange time to be celebrating a 5-year anniversary in the midst of a global pandemic, an economic recession flirting with a depression, deepening climate collapse, #BlackLivesMatter and #IdleNoMore and other groups confronting massive widespread increased levels of anxiety and dread, and a deep desire to avoid the United States of America.
On one hand, arguably, I’m no longer a startup, but these days we are all startups, trying to navigate in this open-ended pandemic.
I’ve watched projects and ideas come and go. Becoming a #Prosci-certified Change Managementor has been the most powerful certification of my life. From teaching high school and university to now, all education is Change Management. Now all the work I do fits the Prosci framework, including
- More co-op development
- Health and Wellness for Teachers becoming BEYOND Health and Wellness for Teachers
- Path Consulting taking on new, existential meaning as people’s jobs, vocations and future plans are in more flux.
I know it is hard to imagine the future.
I know 5 weeks and 5 months are hard enough to predict, let alone 5 years down the road.
But these days I’m back in my startup mindset because the world demands it.
I’m certainly grateful that I’m carrying a Prosci mentality forward. It is keeping the dread to a minimum! 🙂
