EP#37: A Positive Outlook

Whether you work inside or outside of the APS, it is safe to say that 2020, for the most of us, was quite the challenging year. With our work, home and day-to-day lives being forced to change at such a rapid rate, people around the globe learnt to adjust. However, along with this, the world didn’t put the rest of life’s challenges on hold, meaning that some of us had a lot of weight to carry on our shoulders. So when our shoulders are sore, and we’re starting to feel ‘a bit over it’, how do we build resilience to come out on the other side?

In this episode of Work with Purpose, we are joined by Dominic Price, Work Futurist at an Australian software company, Atlassian.

Price starts off this episode on a personal note. He explains some of the hardships that he has faced in the last 12 months. How did he deal with the challenges that faced him? How did he build resilience?

He also touches on ‘the new workforce’ and reflects on working from home. Are we being more or less productive? Is it something that we should continue to do, even when the pandemic ends?

Price ends the interview by giving listeners some tips on how to reprioritize their lives. What is important to you? Where do you want to be five years from now?

Discussed in this episode:

  • How to stay positive and build resilience.
  • The positives and negatives of working from home.
  • What skills 2020 has given those in the corporate world.
  • Why now is the time to reprioritize your life.
