A few months back Seth Godin released his manifesto Stop Stealing Dreams, a look at the role of school in the life of our students and our economy. It’s interesting and provocative and it’s free–download it here.
The book will take you a couple hours to read and I think some good discussions should come from it.
Seth gave a presentation recently that reveals the major points of the book. The preso is less than 20 minutes and, again, worth your consideration.
One of my former business students at LCU sent this note to my colleague and me today. Context: she graduated a couple years ago and has recently been working at a large corporation in the Midwest.
I’m always grateful to learn that what we do is helpful.
Hello Business Professors of mine—
I just felt the need to write you two and thank you for preparing me and training me for the professional business world. Every day at my company I am reminded of how important my education was. I see emails with common, careless grammar mistakes. I see unprofessional email styles. I see other co-workers in the same position as me coming in late to meetings with leadership, complaining about their work in front of people who could give them a step up the ladder, etc. I am so thankful that I had professors who challenged us, gave us advice for the business world, and prepared us to be DIFFERENT! Leadership notices. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
I hope all is well with the two of you! I am learning so much at my company. Tell those students of yours that I said, “Listen up! These professors know what they are talking about!”
