Today, in our Friday Filosophy #2016-1 I want to focus first on learning. We are undergoing a complete makeover, a radical one, in our learning business. We are converting everything to internet based learning.
We are creating programs we call Learning: On Demand which will cover 60 plus internet based self-study programs on specific subjects. These programs will replace our live webinars.
We are also in the process of developing the Virtual Classroom programs. These programs will replace the actual classroom seminars we have been conducting for the past twenty years. 2016 will be the last year we offer the live classroom as a learning format. The Virtual Classroom will offer 14 plus specific learning products. They will all have CEU available.
Let me start then with some quotes on Education and Learning.
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.
Martin Luther King
Education is wasted on the young.
The tools of education are bitter but the fruit is sweet.
Education is the movement from darkness to light.
Education is learning what you didn’t even know you didn’t know.
David J Boorstin
Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow.
Anthony J D’Angelo
And now for our Friday Filosophy.
Change your opinions, keep to your principles; change your leaves keep intact your roots.
The leader has to be practical and a realist, yet must talk the language of the visionary and the idealist.
It is not enough to take steps which may someday lead to a goal; each step must be itself a goal and a step likewise.
Johan Wolfgang von Goethe
Forgiveness is a virtue of the brave.
The time is now
