I thought I would write a few reflections about this week’s Thing 1, Getting Started.
It was wonderful meeting many of you in our Kazoom session on ‘discovering your digital profile’. Thanks for sharing your thoughts – it was great to get to know you a bit better and I hope you enjoyed meeting the team! If you haven’t done that activity, you can at any time.
I was delighted that the game Certitude (which takes place at our office and features our team) was one of the activities in this week’s Thing. However, it was a most surreal meta-experience to be meeting myself in the game, in a weird time-travel-intertwining-alternate-realities kind of way. I was especially taken aback when (as the boss of Certitude) I had to give myself (as the intern fact-checker at Certitude) the formidable ‘I’m disappointed in your performance today’ look that I give my staff sometimes – now I know how it feels to be on the receiving end!
All of us at Certitude are excited to be a part of the 23 Things project. We’re here to help out, but I’m sure that we’ll also be learning a lot of things as well. I see it as a great professional development opportunity for my team to develop their workplace skills further, and it is already giving me plenty of ideas of things they can do – but don’t tell them that, haha!
