First C:F online workshop for Chapter Presidents

by Zhikica Pagovski on 20th May, 2011 at 4:52 PM CEST

The first workshop for Chapters Presidents took place last month on Skype, six Chapter Presidents and several members taking part in this event. The main theme of the workshop was Learning and Change and it was held by dr. Nadya Zhexembayeva, C:F Vice-president and Coca-Cola Chair of Sustainable Development at IEDC- Bled School of  Management.  

The first issue dr. Zhexembayeva raised was how do Chapter Presidents learn and how do they percieve the process of learning. Jovana Djurkovic, Faculty of Economics Podgorica Chapter President, considers learning as “a life-long process, and someone learns something after the moment he or she failed or made mistakes.” Another issue in discussion was whether theory is better than practice, on which most of the workshop participants favored practice. 

Dr. Zhexembayeva’s main point during the workshop was that people should not always use conventional learning methods, but to use creativity and to try to imagine the learning process even before they start it. She also talked about the relation between success and mistakes and that people should learn from their success, not mistakes. She stated that mistakes are overrated, and should not be used as learning tool.  

“This lecture was really interesting and made me think out of the box” stated Simona Atanasova, Chapters Network Vice-president. “I preferred the conventional methods of learning, but now I look from a different angle.” This was one of the series of workshops planned to train Chapter Presidents to successfully coordinate the chapters. This was the second online event organized within the Chapters Network. In February this year, Ms. Nastja Mulej, a licensed “De Bono thinking” educator gave an online lecture on Constructive Thinking for around 50 Chapter members.

I like Nadya's lectures! I am very rigid on some concepts, but Nadya's ideas help me to think out of the box!
