  A new year… fresh opportunities, a sense of optimism, and a chance to regroup, and reset priorities. We could do this any time of year, but there’s something about the Australian summer that means we seem to draw a clear and fresh line in the sand – pardon the pun! As 2019 kicks off, it’s worth thinking about what lies ahead for our organisations, our customers, and our staff. As leaders in customer experience design in Queensland, 3rdView has looked at the trends in our community, and have identified three that we think will shape the customer experience landscape [...]

Perfectly Imperfect

2018-11-04T00:50:36+00:00

“Perfectionism is increasing and that’s not good news”. A recent Harvard study tells us that young people are becoming increasingly perfectionistic, and that this is impacting their mental health.

They didn’t care for my opinion. They just yelled at me for being in their way. So, rather than yell my opinion at them, I flipped my perspective and found a more powerful result. Let me set the scene … I was riding my bicycle on my usual path to work. It is only a 15 minute ride. I’m not a slipstream MAMIL [...]
