my LEAD journey – week 1

This week I’m starting on a whole new adventure. I’ve been accepted to be part of a group of 100 pioneers at a new online course at Stanford: http://www.gsb.stanford.edu/exed/lead/. It’s a course set up specifically for change-makers in an existing organisational structure. For those who like me, do not just except the status quo, who dare to challenge and disrupt for the sake of positive change. It’s the first time that Stanford offers a course like this, in an online, collaborative environment. It’s very exciting and a privilege  to be able to tap into this great educational structure, knowledge and energy for making change and innovation happen.

This week has been about introduction to the resources, setting up our profiles, playing around on the amazing virtual 3D platform that they’ve created as part of the new learning experience. The group that is part of this yearlong program is incredibly diverse, from different industries, countries and ages, all in different types of jobs, but with one thing in common: we’re all looking for change, for exploring new unknown territories, and for being challenged. It’s going to be a great year!
