What is a book or movie that has inspired you?
An easy-to-read and highly inspirational book is Shift Your Mind Shift The World by Steve Chandler. A key learning for me was that expectations are not the same as agreements. So if a colleague or employee is not living up to your expectations, you have to check in with yourself and ask if you have an unspoken expectation, or has there been an agreement between you two? It’s best to have a conversation with the other person and make a formal agreement on what each of your contributions should be and then live up to them. You can’t expect other people to read your mind!
Do you (or your company) offer internships or job shadow opportunities to high school students? If so, how would a student go about applying for one of those?
The Casery is a small company so we don’t currently offer internships. There may be job shadow opportunities in the future, after Covid-19 lockdown. Stay tuned!
