This is a Discussion Post related to the fourth week of 522.
What’s your ride? I’ve been very fortunate in my career in that I’ve worked variously in, or with, government, institutions, foundations, non-profits, startups, corporations, etc. They all have their own personalities, cultures and, like all human organizations, soul-draining dysfunctionalities. I’ve discovered I love the startup ride better than any other because, despite the higher risks, it is the single best vehicle within which one can focus the collective ideas and passions of a group of committed individuals toward a shared but challenging objective. As an education professional you have the tools and wisdom to choose your ride, so what is it? Describe your learning vehicle of choice.
