T minus 2: Parting notes for #celnie
Posted July 30, 2014on:
July 31st is my last day as a faculty member of NIE. Before I leave, I have some parting words for members of my work family, the Centre for e-Learning.
You have started experiencing the changes that typically happen with the change in leadership. The pains are normal. Here are three tips to deal with it.
- Do not complain. Do something productive about it. Complaining gets you nowhere and demoralizes you and those around you.
- Help yourself by helping others. By this I mean two things: Take the perspective of others when you need their help. Then work towards a purpose larger than yourself.
- If you must (eventually) leave, do so with no regrets. Do not stay and implement half measures. Know that you have done your best so that you never have to say “I wish I had…”.
P. S. This is not goodbye. I am quite sure that it is more like see you later. 😉
