The Professional Value of Leisure and Imagination
"Not so long ago, productivity and economic worthiness of skills and knowledge were so dominant in professional value that softskills were mostly ignored. Nowadays, most modern companies and organizations are well aware of the value of softskills like leadership, mindfulness and emotional intelligence among others, but still, recreation and imagination are considered just personal enrichment and fulfillment.
What if we were able to boost our professional profile by making a wise use of our hobbies, creative and recreative activities such as arts, literature or sports? Even memes may become such an unexpected and productive resource!
Let's explore together the practical possibilities that are enabled by switching our imagination-awareness on and by getting problem solving ideas from recreational sources."
