'Full of wisdom, warmth and positivity, Do Agile makes us feel that anything is possible. An excellent companion to people of all ages who want to live a meaningful life in which they not only fulfil their own personal dreams, but give back to society too.' - Ella Berthoud, Bibliotherapy
When faced with 'new' and 'different', are we really open-minded - or wary and suspicious?
In a world obsessed with the latest tech or trend, where groupthink dominates, it's easy to close down our thinking; to mentally inhabit a space that is both comfortable and familiar. Yet what if we've become stuck in our ways? Or stopped having an opinion that was truly our own?
Do Agile is about resetting our minds and moving forward. Tim Drake shows us that to work effectively in any organisation – and in life in general, we require a mindset that is open, alert, engaged and positive. And importantly, aligned with our core principles. You will:
- Define your values as they change over time
- Find out how 'giving back' leads to a positive mindset
- Reignite a desire to learn
- Retrain your mind to think more autonomously
Today's world requires a new type of toolkit. One that helps build mental resilience, a growth mindset, and a positive outlook. Once that's in place, you can do practically anything.
Tim Drake has co-founded and run businesses, Think Tanks and charities. Now in his seventies, he believes that he, like most people, has more to give and more to learn. After 25 years, the industry Think Tanks he created - made up of members from all parts of the supply chain - continue to keep thinking open and agile. He is a keynote speaker and his previous publications include Wearing the Coat of Change (Orion 1998), How to Make a Difference (Marshall Cavendish Business 2012) and You Can Be as Young as You Think (Pearson Prentice Hall Life 2009).
