I am sure I am not the only one who has been taking this time to learn more. Whether it is on online learning platforms like Udemy or Skillshare, or through blogs, or learning from the Edu-TikToks that are making their way to many of our "For You" pages on the popular app.
My personal favourite way to learn is through consumption of multi-media. I typically start with podcasts. I take a lot of walks, and spend a lot of time driving kids around, so the podcasts are easy for me to consume even on the busiest of days.
From podcasts I will typically dive deeper into the subject matter by finding the expert authors, searching through relevant apps, and sometimes even finding courses on one of the online learning platforms available to me.
What I want to focus on for today's blog is the idea of psychological safety. I heard about this on a podcast last week, and it actually perfectly aligns with something that I have been practicing myself, and that is absolute honesty - with a few "rules", or guidelines, if you prefer.
The entire world is on lockdown except 2 countries - Belarus, and Sweden. As some of you may know, I moved to Sweden in August of 2019 to work as an au pair. Initially I had moved here as a way to break from the life I was living in Ottawa, and hit the reset button in a country I had always wanted to see more of.
Prior to coming to Sweden, I had always thought that Sweden was like a Canada 2.0. Beautiful scenery, nice people, and better social programs and environmental policies. Although a lot of this is still true, my view of Sweden has changed during the coronavirus pandemic.
