Our F.O.O.D series is back!

Our F.O.O.D series is back!

One of the things I loved doing last year was putting time into my F.O.O.D. (Fixing the Out of Office Dilemma) concept. And I know those of you who attended the sessions did too.

If you haven’t come across F.O.O.D. before, the illustration below gives you an idea of what it’s all about. I devised it to help us all work better whilst being away from the office during the pandemic and because this way of working has continued, it’s remained a staple in a lot of your diets. We created Breakfast Meetings, Lunch and Learns, Pick and Mix Menus for Management Skills and Leadership Skills, with the odd canape, served in team meetings.

I loved getting creative with it all and it was fabulous seeing people devour the learning and hearing how it was being put into practice.

It’s no surprise then that it’s an area where I spent a lot of time reflecting and tried to make it ‘even better’.


So, what’s new?

Well, our latest invention is an Amuse Bouche.

Fancy restaurants provide them to tickle your taste buds before you have your meal. In fact, when I looked up the meaning of them, they were described as a way for the chef to express their true talent in small bites.

And I’ve decided to do exactly the same for you.


How will it work?

Every Friday, I’m running 20-minute Zoom sessions at 08:10, using easy to digest and useful ingredients to enhance the way you manage yourself and others.

I’ve created a seasonal menu full of relevant bite-size topics to feed your mind with practical hints and tips.

We’re calling it Friday’s Forage.

Come along with your favourite beverage in search of new resources! You may even be reminded of those tools and techniques that are laying dormant.

I’m sure you won’t be disappointed by what you’re able to collect in such a short period of time that will work for you personally and/or in your work environment.

If you’d like to join us, simply email me at jane@janehirst.com and I’ll send you the Zoom link.
