Andrea Yu-Chieh Chung: “There’s no such thing as a truly “original” idea, and that’s okay”

There’s no such thing as a truly “original” idea, and that’s okay. Because we work in a creative industry, there is often the pressure of trying to do something that no one else has done before. However, creativity and originality are not the same. I believe that creativity is the ability to transform your experience, knowledge, imagination, into something that you can share with others. I don’t think it’s about bringing something into existence or doing something no one else has done before, but rather, it’s about suggesting a new way of seeing the world. So don’t be afraid of not having an original idea — it is more important to tell stories in your own way.

Minna Taylor of Energize Your Voice: “Over communicate”

Over communicate. During a crisis, I have never heard someone express that they wish they had less information. Simply reflect back to the last time your flight was delayed. Everyone is standing around with anxious glances wondering if anyone knows what’s going on even though the airline staff gave an update five minutes ago. People need the security of information. As leaders, it’s really easy to get tunnel vision. Head down and get it done. Don’t forget to come up for air and connect to your people, frequently. It doesn’t always have to be new information. Reiterate information or just let them know you appreciate them.

How Privileged Access Management Fits Into a Layered Security Strategy

T Tara Turk-Haynes of Leaf Group: “Education ”

Education — go out there and learn things about other people in a way that is rooted in those people.
