Three Brite Ideas on How to Thrive and Stay Relevant in a Changing World

In every episode, we ask our guest to summarize the conversation with three brite ideas.

Here are Nena’s brite ideas on thriving and staying relevant in a changing world:

1. Set aside an hour weekly to watch a webinar, read a relevant article, or visit another university’s website to inspire yourself. Nena does this on a Friday and calls it “Friday Inspiration”.

2. Develop your data analytics skills to understand how to use data smartly to understand and highlight the impact of your work.
