The WordPress Helsinki meetup group aims to bring people of all skill levels together, from beginners to WordPress professionals. WordPress Helsinki is purely organised by community volunteers, and operates under the WordPress code of conduct.
This month we are delighted to start hosting talks again and welcome back Elisa Heikura (https://developerhood.com/) as a speaker. While not directly linked to WordPress, she will give an important talk on how our mind works when we take or avoid personal responsibility – which is basically the root cause for most of our problems at work.
Elisa describes her talk as follows:
“Immediately starting to read The Responsibility Process I was struck by a lightning, run over by a truck and a couple of other this-sh*t-changed-my-life metaphors. I mean seriously: how much time and energy have I wasted feeling angry, frustrated, trapped, burdened, overly stressed and ready to kill a bunch of people? Lots. Waaaaaaay too much.
If you prefer reading a book, you can get everything by spending the meetup time diving into The Responsibility Process by Christopher Avery. But if you like stories, enjoy listening to someone telling theirs and wish to get the main points quickly… then I’ll see you next Wednesday.”
