A little bit of Awareness

I am very happy to have been one of the speakers at the last nights Up.Front. I shared my recent insight about my role of product/project management at teambay, where we make a tool that lets employees and managers exchange feedback anonymously, and on a weekly basis.

As I often do with presentations, I included a few screenshots from Star Trek: The Next Generation to accompany certain points related to helping teams communicate and become better aware.

Small signs in public toilet spaces

Small signs on a Czech train (Berlin to Prague) informing passengers not to place trash into the the toilet. I love that they have icons of an apple core, aluminium cans, and I think a toothpaste tube.

Small signs like this often exist in public toilet spaces. A toilet is designed for human waste/fluids. It’s not a trash bin, but sadly passengers have used it as such and train staff had to deal with it. A good example of awareness, or lack of awareness on the part of train participants. What is obvious to some, is not obvious to others.
