“challenge conventional wisdom”
What is the requirement to develop ourselves? : Challenge Conventional Wisdom!
He opened with the current event for new grads: Job hunting.
He talks about the development of human with history knowledges. Such as, Magellan, and Charles Darwin’s theories.
“I need to think for myself and then I challenge conventional wisdom”
2nd speaker: TM Y K, Effective Coaching #3-6 – Connect with Storytelling
“Decided not to…”
He talked about his struggle to study and re-study English. He used to stay in the US for several years in his childhood. He spoiled himself until the university. He then tried to study and quit twice in the university. In the 3rd year of working, he needs to read the contract in English and he realized that he could not understand it. He felt miserable for not being able to do so, but he has a serendipity to try to study English once again and to study in the US. He went on the third challenge with different attitude. He decided NOT TO DO something.
· Not to use many textbooks, but focus only on a book. He gave examples of the books he used.
· Not to go drinking
Finally, he achieved 114/120 TOEFL scores and enabled him to go to any school in the US.
“What is your priority? If your priority is English, why don’t you decide not to do something?”
3th speaker: TM C W, Leadership Development #1-4 – Researching and Presenting
She started with scary question about the real world in 21th century of choices to die. She leads us to the topic of animal rights. She started the story of breeding chicken in Japan. From hygienic conditions of their growing, it may seem like it would be alright. However, actually, the bacteria that grow in the chicken could infect us, too. We have our choice to choose chickens that are bred and grow naturally.
“Animal life is not only for animal life. It affects human life, too. Our choice can change the world.”
