Next week the college semester will begin at the community college where I teach.  I am VERY HAPPY to report that my class will be offered in the traditional face-to-face fashion!  I cannot explain or describe the two-way add-value learning that is brought about via the direct students-to-instructor interaction. I pull energy, enthusiasm, imagination, and personal growth from every session.  In return I observe student growth in confidence, interpersonal relationships, subject matter knowledge and willingness to step-out-of-the-box of educational traditions!

 OK… I know you are all thinking… what does all this “professor-time” information have to do with this week’s TRIPLE III TIME: Re-Start or NEW START topic?

Well how about if we begin by just looking closely at the words in the title. I believe today… more than ever before… no matter your occupation… EVERYONE would be better assuming a NEW START (not a re-start) approach to their jobs.  How enthusiastic would you feel if your company… your organization announced that you were going back and re-starting from a point in the past? Yes… you would be instructed to go back before pandemic impacts and pick-up… and resume your work… before you were told to stay home for maybe 5 months!

Let me be clear… I am going to begin my class Monday with a quality NEW START message, openness, and energy.  I will hope that this NEW START approach will be contagious to the students, college, staff, and fellow course instructors.  I will take full advantage of the face-to-face opportunity… but also express in a NEW START way… the need to absorb every ounce of positive learning… no matter the method of delivery.

Promise me you will formulate a NEW START approach as you get to return to work!
