Counting to D is her first novel. When Kate isn’t writing, she enjoys listening to audiobooks, camping, and spending time with her friends and family. Kate also spends a lot of time doing math and sciency things and is a licensed professional engineer.

Perfect example of "living in your areas of strength". Kate Scott obviously knows that spot and showcases her creativity in a soulful work about a fictional character illuminating a real-life challenge .

Excerpt:
And now, let the interview commence! 

Counting to D is amazing and so realistically grounded, I wonder how much of it is based on real life. Kate, when and how was it discovered you dealt with dyslexia?

 Kate: The academic aspect of Counting to D is based upon my own experience. Like Sam, I was diagnosed with dyslexia in elementary school and underwent extensive private tutoring to gain an understanding of basic phonics. Also, like Sam, I am naturally gifted in math and have a sharp oral memory. That being said, this book is still a work of fiction. I did not have a high school boyfriend as adorable as Nate. I wasn’t forced to move away from all my friends as a teen. And thankfully, my parents are nothing like Sam’s.

Prezi isn't new but it is still pretty innovative. I recommend using just to stick out from the PowerPoint crowd. You will really stick out if you use it as creatively as they did in this video.

Emotional Agility

Emotional Agility | Thinking Creatively | Scoop.it

Sixteen thousand—that’s how many words we speak, on average, each day. So imagine how many unspoken ones course through our minds. Most of them are not facts but evaluations and judgments entwined with emotions—some positive and helpful (I’ve worked hard and I can ace this presentation; This issue is worth speaking up about; The new VP seems approachable), others negative and less so (He’s purposely ignoring me; I’m going to make a fool of myself; I’m a fake).

 

The prevailing wisdom says that difficult thoughts and feelings have no place at the office: Executives, and particularly leaders, should be either stoic or cheerful; they must project confidence and damp down any negativity bubbling up inside them. But that goes against basic biology. All healthy human beings have an inner stream of thoughts and feelings that include criticism, doubt, and fear. That’s just our minds doing the job they were designed to do: trying to anticipate and solve problems and avoid potential pitfalls.
