RefinementApril 10, 2019
Refinement. I absolutely love this word. It is the struggle between reality and dreams. I love the dilemma and the space to work creatively. Refining my idea about imposing a color scheme over all content on the Internet is large, all encompassing and incomprehensibly impossible. I absolutely love working on what others consider impossible.
I recently attended a lecture offered by Hofstede Insights and felt this could be a good start to help bring the concept towards the concrete. Although I am not convinced this is the model or company to do the job, it certainly offers the concrete evaluation of cultural differences that I am looking for. I would be interested to reassess and/or find other international organizations that offer the same service. I realize I need to learn a bit about research and development before I can make a solid decision on which company/system to move forward with.
I find that while I have been working on this project, my other work processes have been affected for the positive. I have recently been tasked to manage 30+ international teachers to offer space for creativity and to raise professionalism across the board. I had to generate ideas how to reach the goals assigned to the group. I have been able to implement my idea for the past month and have now reached a place where I can start to ask for idea refinements from the teachers I am working with. It is very exciting to be part of the process and learn how to encourage others to reach for their goals.
