A friend shared a great TEDx Talk with me recently about the workplace and simplification and about asking the right questions.
I quit my job as CIO over a year for several reasons that I won’t go into here. Since then, I’ve thought about lessons learned and perhaps, things I might have done differently at different times in the role.
I think this talk gets to the heart of it. An organization must prioritize simplification, removing bureaucracy, be nimble and fast and create a culture where asking and answering hard questions is the way things are done. Seems like more could have been done on this front.
I really did love the people I worked with there and recently had a chance to see some of my colleagues for a visit. It was a great time.
