Inspiration at work: with Francesca Puccio and John Niland

Francesca Puccio:

"In my very first job in small engineering consultancy I remember the sense of oppression that I felt in my chest every time I step in the office in the morning. 
The job was not my favourite and my boss could have been better, but there was something about the office space that made my body shudder (or a better say that I sort of shrank and felt oppressed). There was not enough sun-light, the furniture was practical but dull and grey, the whole place was simply not inspiring. 

But what is an inspiring space?  Come and see examples of interesting work places and learn what you can do to make small but significant improvements in the spaces you live and work. "

John Niland:

“Some months ago, I started researching what people need in order to create more opportunity. I expected to hear about skills, strategies, social media and so on. However, the majority of professionals talked about confidence, identity, self-belief and resilience in the face of adversity. 

It appears we have more need of inspiration than ever.  Whether one is struggling with a shortage of new business, a demanding boss, a lack of feedback or an overwhelming workload, the challenge is to find sufficient inspiration to overcome adversity and to thrive in the face of change. 

So how are people doing that? What works? Let me share with you what has been put forward so far and perhaps you will be tempted to take part in this ongoing research.”
