How to recognize and share your skills and knowledge
Do you want to join E-180 but don’t think you have anything to offer? You are not the only one: we hear it all the time.
I remember a friend recently talking about how I should start a career on helping people to think outside of the box. Although it was said in gest, it really got me thinking about how I can use this ability to help others think more creatively about their options.
In anticipation for the launch of the public version of E-180 and English language version of the project, I will be writing about how to recognize and find ways to share the skills/knowledge you have as well as building on them through learning from others.
The main approach I hope to share with you is called Asset Based Community Development. I learned about this approach through an international internship in 2010 with the Coady International Institute and Oxfam Canada Ethiopia.
Although the context I had a chance to observe this approach in practice was quite different, I feel the process and tools are incredibly relevant to the E-180 platform as they help to acknowledge and recognize strengths at both the individual and community levels.
Well, lets start off with this question to get us going:
What is the last event/landmark in your life you were proud of and how did you achieve it? Did anyone help you achieve success, if so, how?
Stay tuned to the E-180 blog for our weekly series of blog posts on how to recognize and share your knowledge and skills.
