There is an old game in town and it comes packed with a new label, 6:2. No! It’s not about food, allthough it is about energy. The new 6:2 brain diet is to secure that you spend 6 hours a day on your own work topics and 2 hours on other topics.
Let’s say you are a scrum master 6 hours a day, then you could spend 2 hours a day exploring economics.
Setting this up as a learning cycle you can have a look at all the people that you connect with regularly and spend 2 hours a day for 6 weeks understanding each one of their special competence area.
If a company can connect its own goals with its employees’ goals, the organisation becomes more resillient and more agile at a time when those capabillities are most needed.
– That is one of the insights delivered in the amazing
by Brick book about the LEGO Company.
To reach the connectivity sought after in the quote above start implementing the 6:2 brain diet. You would soon discover that employees where more in tune with each other, the customers and the company.
