Feedback is always appreciated

In a perfect world there is a very good match between your self-image and how other people see you. In the real world there might be a discrepancy that you are not aware of or you don't want to hear about. If you are looking for open, honest and direct feedback check with kids or pets.

I had the school workshop today and we had a really good time with 10 pupils (4 girls and 6 boys), all 13th grade. They will finish their school next year springtime. 2.5 hours with a good mixture of hands-on exercises and theoretical slides about e.g. digital transformation, change, skills and lifelong learning. Possibly not the Top 3 topics kids in this age and school situation want to hear about, but all have been very interested and the content was much appreciated. In the 1st exercise they had to introduce themselves in 30 seconds by just using pictures. During the 2nd session they did create an explainer video with MySimpleShow  https://www.mysimpleshow.com/ about a freely chosen subject.

Final feedback about the workshop was very detailed and positive from the 10 pupils. I did get a 1.4 on a 1 to 5 scale, where 1 was the best. Great result, I was very pleased 🙂👍.

Now I am looking forward to Sunday for the 2nd TEDxKoenigsallee in Duesseldorf, Germany  https://www.ted.com/tedx/events/33385. The list of speakers and more details about them is only available in German at https://tedxkoenigsallee.de/speakers/

When we make progress and get better at something, it is inherently motivating. In order for people to make progress, they have to get feedback and information on how they're doing. -- Daniel H. Pink, American - Author Born: 1964, https://www.danpink.com/about/
