I had the pleasure of participating in a meeting with the leaders of the University of Waterloo’s Organizational and Human Development today as they have approached my supervisor to help them develop a workshop and also to come up with new workshops regarding culture.
What I loved the most about the session (besides that fact that I’ll get some consulting – well, training/facilitating – experience) was the response one of the leaders gave to my supervisor when she asked how OHD makes decisions to implement something: “We do whatever we want!”
When I heard that, I thought to myself, “I want to be in that position.” I want to be in a position where I can make all my own decisions and have the power to execute them. I want to do whatever I want.
That’s also why I’m doing a PhD.
