Working Out Loud in Action – Jonathan Anthony


Our practice of working out loud delivers benefits from sharing of practical examples and the advice of others.  As a result, in the lead up to #wolweek from 17-24 November, we are starting a series of five-question interviews with practitioners of working out loud, asking them to share their lessons and advice.

First up we have one of the co-founders of International Working Out Loud Week, Jonathan Anthony with his usual direct & concise advice.

  1. What do you recommend for someone considering starting a practice of working out loud?
  2. How do I maximise the benefits or minimise the risks of working out loud?
    Don’t over think it. #WOL is about doing and learning, not learning then doing.
  3. Tell us a story of when working out loud surprised you
    #WOL surprises pretty much every time, no? That’s the fun of it.
  4. How does working out loud support your work?
    It supports my reflective learning and that is probably the number one way I get better.
  5. What inspires you to practice working out loud?
    The focus to always get better and the realization that trying things is the best way to do it.
