In 1997, Apple kicked off its “Think Different” campaign with an iconic and inspirational commercial paying tribute to “people who think they’re crazy enough to change the world…”
I believe that anyone in the learning field – instructional designers, teachers, professional trainers, people who have been asked to put together a presentation at a conference or at a staff meeting – has an opportunity to change the world.
Here is my Apple-esque tribute to learning professionals:
Here’s to the inspirational ones
The ones who create audience-centered experiences
While some may see them as a necessary evil to get CEUs or free pizza
I see possibility
Because the people who are brave enough to take risks and to find ways to inspire their audience
Are the ones who unleash the potential to do amazing things
As the Thanksgiving season descends upon me here in the United States, I’m extremely thankful that I’m in a position where I have an opportunity to change the world through amazing learning experiences (if I do say they’re “amazing” myself). I’m also extremely thankful for the readership of my blog – thank you for reading (and special thanks to those who comment or Tweet a post from time to time!!).
Think someone else could find some inspiration from this tribute to learning professionals? Pass this post along!
