MAKING SUCCESS POSSIBLE
Are You Building Bridges or Walls?
We live in a world of walls. Walls that divide things into small manageable pieces, or so we think. Our goal in separating things is to understand them better, but over time, this method of understanding becomes restrictive and limiting. What started out as a way to better define things or manage them becomes a set-in-stone method. In educational circles, this looks like programs that are ineffective being continued on after their usefulness has expired. Or perhaps a lack of innovation because “we’ve never done it that way before.” The walls go up until we are a fragmented system in which no one area communicates meaningfully with the others. I believe this happens across all forms of education, not just in public schools. Colleges, churches, private schools, extracurricular classes, corporate training rooms…all of these places are full of walls that divide their members. So how do we fix that? Is there a solution? The answer is yes, there is. Build bridges.
Making success possible is what we do.
