1. Why do you think speaking at #doppa2020 really matters to you?
This gives me an opportunity to talk to various role holders in the industry and help them learn from my experiences and I get an opportunity to learn from others.
2. Do you think that organizations and individuals should promote virtual learnings special in the current situation?
Yes, NOW is THE TIME to switch to virtual learning, while the whole humanity is under the impact of this Pandemic, Learning will not only help people feel better and help them adjust in the VUCA world. IT would prepare individuals and organizations to advance in life when the whole world seems to have come to a standstill. There needs to be a massive leap in virtual work and virtual learning.
3. While practice makes all of us perfect, share an everyday practice that has made things better for you at work?
I believe staying connected to people and to the realities has helped me overcome many challenges at work. I meet, talk and listen to people. Whether its my team, my boss, or my client, and today while meeting in-person may not be possible, communication and staying in touch is absolutely essential.
4. Anything else you want to share
The Nature is teaching us a lesson to be sensitive to itself and also to the diverse population we have in our country. Hopefully, this becomes a way of life moving forward and we can work towards a more inclusive and sustainable society with equal opportunities to learn and grow for all individuals.
