"Transform yourself in the change you want to see in the world - Gandhi"
I will write it in third person cause that's how better comes out of my mind.
Isaac Guerrero Jaimes has an unsettled creative mind that is always looking for situations that challenge his mind to come up with a solution. Having a Bachelors degree in Communication Sciences and majoring in Media and Organizational Communication he began researching and studying about companies for pure personal taste.
Has worked as a waiter, barman, newspaper sales man on the street, a creative copy, corporate consultant, course designer and facilitator... janitor, graphic designer for web and interactive media. He has studied film-making, professional photography, organizational development, systems thinking, branding... likes wise advertising and he thinks of himself as a hidden publicist. He likes movies, comics and toys. He loves tennis, is getting to train boxing and is really looking forward to start training cross fit. He has the objective on achieving a big goal in the sports area, for pure personal fulfillment. Loves watching and playing American Football and regrets not doing so in High School and College. His favorite NFL team: Miami Dolphins and Philadelphia Eagles, favorite College Team (USA): Nebraska CornHuskers (cause he spent a semester overthere as an exchange student), favorite College Team Mexico: Borregos Salvajes. On TV he enjoys very much series like: Arrow, Elementary, BBC's Sherlock, and The Big Bang Theory. He also enjoys watching the Iron Man's Movies, over, and over and over again. His favorite comic character was Batman, but since he has found him profoundly sad and depressing, now that IronMan movies came out and presented a highly creative, life enjoying lifestyle type of character, then he decided to switch.
If we learn by moving, by watching or by hearing we do prefer to perform tasks that suit our way of learning. So finding health at work will mean to find a job that suits our own way of learning/performing.
Who said we needed to stop having fun after our responsibilities? Why don't we continue playing like we used to when we were kids? Because there are no spaces to do so, and we can do something about that.
Cool, let's work it out! How do I join the Virtual Team? Something that we might need to know is, how does the culture of collaboration manifests in Singapore? (Meena, by any chance do you know about a study or someone's inspiration that talks about this?) Then, one issue we must solve is how are we going to rally people to go to the workshops, what would motivate them to go. I ask this two questions because sometimes finding a cultural aspect makes projects succeed or fail. For example, Muhammad Yunnus'es Micro Finance Project succeeded in India because within the Indian culture to save face is a must. There, people do not like to be seen as someone that doesn't meet his or her commitments, to do so is their "social death". That is why they made all what was in them to pay the loan that was granted to them and since this loan came by being referenced by a friend, they could not let the good name of their friend be at risk with the community. Peer pressure is what made micro finance successful in India. One other thing, entertainment-edutainment-edugaming is the key to the success of our solution, the more engaging and fun is the workshop the better. We must need to define the following: - Theme (we do need a main premise that will give us the theme of our workshop) - Plot (what would there be needing to be solved and that will act as our learning "vehicle") - Should we think of prices? What kind of gift do the people that achieve the goal of reaching the end of the workshop successfully could receive that could help even more reinforce the goal of our challenge? (an idea that pops in my mind right now: something like carboncredits)
These are my comments, please receive them as my will to collaborate, because sometimes I tend to be inquisitive or be perceived as I want to impose my self. Non of that, please see beyond this and just see it as my contribution because I want to collaborate. I'll wait for your comments.
