My primary work is with international NGOs (nonprofits) in supporting them to be better managers and leaders and have health organizational cultures with the end result being that they do their very important work even more better. What energizes me about learning to facilitate online communities is the possibilities of what I could do with this information. I can see bringing managers and leaders from similar organizations or within organizations together to share learnings and support each other in going forward. I can see training and team building. I can see community building. Oh the possibilities.
And there is a secret part of me that is thrilled with all the technology. Once I understand it. I stand in amazement, who knew all this was going on (RRS for instance) and how wonderfully accessible it makes the world and what people are thinking and talking about.
That is where I am at the moment. Looking forward to having my BB (Blog Buddy) help me figure out stuff that I am not even aware I need to figure out.
