This grabbed me today, for when describing my work history / value story to strangers.... From the link above I clicked over to Babette Ten Haken’s blog site, then scanned the “Recent Post” list and clicked into, Is Cross Functional Versatility part of your Professional Value Story. That post reminded me to work on a long list of quick stories throughout my career of embracing collaborating with people across the organization; across functions, across business units. The first five bullets in her post really resonated with me.

This Grabbed me today. One of my go-to self-awareness examinations is at semi-annual intervals to reflect on whether I am doing enough to grow my personal community (Up, Across, Down the org.) in numbers who share a deep sense of trust. I found something on that today, offered by ASQ Influential Voices’ Robert Mitchel. From the link above I clicked over to Robert Mitchel’s site. Under Monday August 3rd 2020, Mr. Mitchel posted a topic from Luke Smith credited at the end of the post. The post is titled, Creating a Culture of Growth/Growth Mindset While Leading Remotely. What I enjoyed reading is summarized in a sentence near the end: Use things like trust, empowerment, communication, and growth opportunities to knit your team together and orient them towards a path of continual learning, adaptation, and growth that benefits both each individual and your company as a whole. And on the first point: trust, under the subtitle, How to Develop a Growth Mindset in a Remote Team, fourth bullet: Build Trust, Even From Afar. Quick read. Great reminders.

I was able to transfer my skills across a wide variety of industries. This cross functional versatility is key to job “security” for quality professionals. Great topic Tom. I hope things are going well for you.

This Grabbed me today.  I found something from ASQ Influential Voices’ Bill Troy. From the ASQ Influential Voices link above I clicked over to Bill’s site. He is currently featuring key take-aways from the Sept 28-30 2020 Quality 4.0 Summit. One highlight being the Lunch & Learn, revealing that an ***Insights on Excellence (IoE) Benchmarking Tool*** is coming in 2021 for ASQE Organizational Members. With more digging, I found this detail landing page on this subject: https://asq.org/quality-resources/research/asqe-insights-on-excellence. The IoE Benchmarking Tool and related annual research is touted as a leading benefit of ASQE Organizational Membership. If you are fortunate enough to belong to an ASQ Organization Membership, keep an eye out for more information.
