The Power of ‘Not Yet’ – Improve Your Testing Skills

There's Nothing You Can't Learn

Dream big. You are capable of more than you can imagine – once you can imagine it

In this ever-changing industry, we are constantly challenged to learn new techniques, roles and languages to stay afloat. It can be intimidating and get exhausting to try and keep up, yet it’s highly rewarding too. There are many ways of learning, and they all start with your individual choice to expand your horizon.

Are you a technical tester? Or an agile tester? Or a developer? Or are you predominantly business focused? Or do you have the power to be all of them combined? A difference between a fixed mindset and a growth mindset to learning is the difference between saying: “I don’t know” and “I don’t know yet”.

We would all love to believe we employ a growth mindset always, but in reality, we often fluctuate between them depending on the context. Often enough, I firmly believed I could learn and still sabotaged myself by remaining in a fixed mindset and choosing the safety of what I know over the uncertainty of that which stretches me. In this talk, I will share my journey and experiences, demonstrate the importance of different role models, and share concrete tips to keep challenging yourself to adapt, take the plunge and acknowledge: ‘not yet, but soon!’
