We want to look at what an educated person looks like.
Each of us has a picture in our minds of what an educated person looks like.
1. (Go around the room and as each person to answer) What is the name of one person you would call an educated person?
2. Still thinking of the person you mentioned in the last question, what are the qualities in that person that makes you say he is educated? (Take notes on these answers.)
3. What are other qualities of an educated person?
4. (Read the list of qualities to the group) What are the essential qualities of an education person we are suggesting with this list?
5. Lets say you are given the opportunity to be the trainer of the educated person. Say, 20 young people and you are sent to an island. You have everything you need to live. You are assigned to turn these young people into the educated people of the 21st century. What are three specific things that you will do?
As managers we will be struggling with this question as long as we work.
