Paul, on his first day of work by a communication agency, was asked to deliver a blog post by nothing later than 5 pm. This was a challenge as it required him a great deal of mental and physical effort to successfully submit the output before its deadline. Also, sharing with the outside world was not something he was used to but as soon as he realized that sharing would have fostered his growth, he began to see writing as a way of expressing his passions to readers. In less than a week time he also adapted his sleeping habits to accommodate longer working hours. Thus, his approach to his day to day challenges became better and his job became much more exciting.

Last week, he created a plan with his students and every day, at the end of the day, the last hour is for them to work in their personal and unique project, expressing their ideas, thinking outside the box, challenge problems with innovative ideas and solutions.

Luna runs ten childcare nurseries and wanted to get staff across the group engaging and communicating better with each other to share good practice. To this end, Luna introduced the staff an app called "Community". Community replaces static web pages and posts with highly personalised, bite-sized chunks of information presented on “boards” displaying relevant “cards”. These communicate quick stories and are far better at connecting people across teams. Luna's team members love using it.

Imagine you are trying to decide what to plant in a new garden, and you choose all sorts of plants and shrubs which you like. You can't just go on buying individual plants without, sooner or later, coming to some view of the whole of the garden, otherwise you will have too many things for one part of the garden and not enough for another, or you may chose plants unsuited to the conditions, or that shade out each other. Holistic thinking enables you to deal with the garden as a whole and not just as a sum of its single parts.

In my part-time job as a copying assistant I often had problems with one of the copiers. It often did not work and had to be repaired. I always attempted to fix a paper jam or a broken photocopier before asking a more experienced colleague to help. Nine times out of ten, I fixed the problem myself and didn't have to stop my colleagues from their work to help me.
