Looking at these pics of myself, made me realise how much I love to ‘teach’.
But for the first time I realise how naturally I flow whilst doing it. As if I am waking up and suddenly realise that ‘I am born to teach’.
Instead, i developed myself as ‘a real-life learner‘ and lived and worked in all kinds of environments whilst learning and practicing my skills as a facilitator/coach/guide/leader continuously. Gradually, I developed myself as the most important tool or instrument in guiding the learning processes of others.
Teaching in my definition is creating an open and inspiring learning environment that brings ‘Talent Beyond Limits‘.
An environment in which I can work with what I sense is needed to bring individual people and a group to performance.
An environment that supports them to dare, to do and to flourish whilst daring and doing it.
I use words as entrepreneurial, experiential and people-centered learning to help people understand how I teach and what I believe in is needed as a mindset, attitude and skills for people in this 21st century.
But we can preach all kind of new buzzwords as examples to tell people they deserve and need more than the current educational systems and learning methodologies.
I do it Day-by-Day. Step-by-Step. Person-by-Person. Life-by-life‘ – Carole Donkers
Pictures are taken by Maccarthy Lomotey, co-founder of Hopin Academy in Tamale, Ghana. I am guiding this social enterprise in the design and implementation of an Entrepreneurhip Incubator. Here I was facilitating a session in which we invited 14 student representatives to co-design the program with us.
