I don’t work in an office where we can operate on the pure Results Only Work environment principles, because we work with the public, in a government funded contract. Not only do we have targets to meet, we are told how to meet them.
But, I have been able to experience this environment in some of my PIDP classes. The first time, in Curriculum Development, it was a total shock. Here are the assignments, here are some resources to support you in completing them, they are all due at the end of the course, and GO!
I took me a couple of weeks to realize how to operate within this environment; I’m so used to having my hand held and being directed through every process in my learning and work that I was at a loss and honestly kind of annoyed.
I have to figure out how to do this?? Seriously?? And then… oh. Of course. Maybe I will learn something. I’m sure you can guess how that story ends 😉
