At 24, I have a lot of questions: How is my mom still always right? What books should I be reading? Is this who I want to be? Why, or why not?
One thing I do know for sure is that almost everything is subject to change. Like the time I was charged with leading an organization of 150 people through a period of constant transition and culture change, or when I quickly learned that being laid off means that you get the chance to change your entire career path.
While some change is unexpected and reactive, it’s the proactive changes that have challenged my heart and head the most. I know that being open to change is the only way to prepare for the hard moments life hands you.
This mindset takes practice: it means being a good listener, showing grace, asking for constant, honest feedback and trusting the importance of every experience. It can also mean asking big questions about major shifts in society, technology and personal identity.
It’s a fitting title for our quarterly panel series sponsored by Microsoft: Open to Change.
It’s also one of our Core Values here at Searchlogic, the foundation on which our company is built.
Our first installation, Open to Change: Keeping Up With the Machines While Keeping Your Job, is on Tuesday, March 6th at 5:30pm at The Cleaners at The Ace Hotel . We’ll hear from experts in their field and dig into the future of automation (a field ripe with change) as it relates to the future of business and customer engagement over drinks. Mindy Haidle from Searchlogic, Elizabeth Robillard from Lytics, Pinky Gonzales from Industrial Training International, and Aaron Lauper from Microsoft will share their own experiences.
Join us as we create an environment where this honest, authentic conversation lives on when the night is done. We want you to be a part of it. The best way to look into the future is with good community!
I would love to see you there and hear your story!
