Feedback from a 2018 CPA Congress delegate after attending Sarah's keynote:
Human Skills - Future Proof Your Career

Hi Sarah,

I attended one of your sessions during the CPA Congress in Melbourne this year in October. I am really happy that I attended your session.
Now that I’ve had a few weeks to see if I could apply some of the learning I took away from your session, I thought it might be appropriate to also let you know how helpful it has been to me.
One thing that I have applied successfully is the concept of creative thinking around the way I do things at my work. In my personal life, I am usually good at thinking things through and finding different ways of doing things. But, at work usually, get caught up with ‘getting things done’. So I don’t give it too much thought about how I can find some creative/new ways to do things that would save me not only time but also make the mundane/annoying tasks easier to do.
I had been delaying a couple of system related issues because I thought ‘I knew what steps I needed to undertake’ to fix those things. However, after I attended your session, I decided to try to apply a bit of creative thinking around those tasks. I also ensured that when I was thinking about it, I was in an open mind frame. So that I don’t fight with my own thinking, but rather let it flow in a more organic manner.
After a couple of attempts, found some simple ways of fixing those problems and also turned it around into an enjoyable task, since now I was concentrating more on the way to do this task rather than the only the outcome.
It’s hard to articulate exactly the situation to you. But I really wanted to thank you for making us do the exercise in your class around filing in 30 circles with 30 different things in 3 minutes. It has surely helped me and I know next time I have something annoying in front of me, I’ll think about different ways of doing things rather than obsess on the things that have gone wrong.

Keep up the great work and thanks again 🙂
