    Digital Transformation in Government! 

    Digital tools available today to organisations are often inferior and harder to use. Those offered over the web at home are much easier. This damages citizens’ confidence in government.
    Moreover, demoralises employees who feel hamstrung and unproductive. A challenge for Government in a society and economy undergoing a digital transformation.
     
    This new digital era requires a fundamental shift in mindsets and a change in how we live and think.
     
    Technology is essential to the functioning of government agencies. Thus they must adapt to this evolving environment.
     
    They must move away from conceptual frameworks, models and programs developed decades ago.
     
    They must learn how digital technology can enhance their operational and policy work. And provide citizens with value added services.

    FIXED MINDSET:

      • “This means I’m a better person than you are.”

    • Creates internal monologue attuned to learning and constructive action and developing oneself
      • “What can I learn from this?”
      • “How can I improve?”
      • “How can I help someone do this better?”

    The only danger is not evolving! 

    The only danger is not evolving!

    Vanity Fair magazine featured interviews about the early days of the Internet. Jeff Bezos revealed that Amazon was successful from the start.

    In fact, orders were backlogging. Jeff and a fellow executive headed to the shipping room to help process orders. They were on their hands and knees, packing up books. When his colleague turned to him and said, “This is killing my knees and my back.” Jeff mulled it over, then said, “We should get kneepads.” His friend looked at him like he was crazy. “No Jeff, we should get packing tables.”

    An excellent example of how intriguing it is when someone bypasses a “low hanging fruit” answer.

    Moreover, introduces a more innovative, evolved way to solve a problem.

    Lack of Confidence? 

    Presenting…

    Tennis champ Chris Evert was asked, on the first day of the tournament, if Serena Williams had a chance of winning the 2014 US Open. Chris said, “We all know confidence is the name of the game for her.” Confidence is the name of the game for all of us. Fortunately, it is a learnable skill, not a strange ability we either have or don’t.

    These four steps can help you channel nervousness into the “show,” so you can walk into any interaction, raring to go.

    1. Go for a walk/rehearse.
    2. Have a flexible game plan.
    3. Give yourself a home-field advantage.
    4. Tower, don’t cower.

    Live With a Purpose! 

    Whenever you’re angry, frustrated, irritated, fearful, anxious, procrastinating, feeling hurt, wishing people would be different … you’re in the bubble. These are signs.
    When you notice that you’re in the bubble, expand your mind and heart. Wish others well. Want their happiness, as you want your own happiness. See other people’s suffering and wish for it to end or lessen. See how you can help. How can you lessen the suffering of others? Sometimes it’s by paying attention, listening. Other times you need to be there, lend a hand. learn to be bigger than yourself. Learn that the life they’ve given as is a gift, and we must make the most of it, and not waste a second.
    Learn that there is nothing more fulfilling than making the lives of others a little better. Be Well and Happy.

    Small Words With Great Meanings! 

     

    Some little words have great implications. These are often outside the conscious awareness of the speaker or listener.

    Small word: But (although, however)

    Implied Meaning: But negates what has previously been said, (as do the other two words to a lesser extent). “That was an excellent presentation, but (however, although) you could make it even better by…” implies that it was not a great performance.

    Comment: It is much more useful to use and instead of but, unless you do want to negate what has been said.

    (For example, when the speaker mentions negatives! Such as “all the difficulties they have had met the deadline.” You can reply, “Yes, it was difficult, but you have learned so much from it.”)

    How you’re brought up can radically impact how successful you become. 

    Natural abilities stop mattering in hunting success after you reach a skills “threshold.” A far more important factor is whether you have useful intelligence.

    Practical intelligence is “procedural” knowledge.

    Knowing how to interpret and work social situations to get what you want. In other words, knowing who to ask what, and when. The ability to interact and negotiate with authority can help to get closer to our goals.

    This knowledge is not innate. Wealthier parents instil in their children a feeling of “entitlement”. More than lower-class parents do. They do this by paying more attention to their children. Providing their children with enriching activities that promote intellectual growth.

    They teach their children to demand respect and to “customise” a situation to suit their needs. In other words, they teach their kids practical intelligence.

    By contrast, poorer parents are often intimidated by authority. They let their children follow a pattern of “natural growth”. There is less pushing, prodding and encouraging than in wealthier families. Thus children from poorer households are less likely to learn practical intelligence.

    Thus, decreases their chances of success.
