7 Skills for the Future
Interview with Barb Garrison
Delighted to be interviewing fantastic careers coach Barb Garrison all the way from Boulder, Colorado. We talk about 3 key skills that we feel are absolutely crucial right now: empathy, adaptability and integrity. We first decided to do this episode before the COVID-19 crisis hit and originally we were going to focus on the importance of all 7 skills and how they show up in careers and with the people she coaches. But we decided it made far more sense to connect with the process of what we are all experiencing right now and to zero in on these three skills.
I love Barb's take on integrity and how we relate to that skill for ourselves, the world crying out for empathy right now and the huge, colossal necessity and task of being and learning how to be adaptable.
I hope to meet Barb in person one day. She hails from Colorado where I used to live many moons ago - a place that is very close to my heart.
