What's strange

The Master of Library and Information Studies program is located within the Faculty of Management at Dalhousie. As such, I am enrolled in two management classes this term. What's strange is that I'm actually finding them really inspiring.

I learned all about a management theory called "Servant Leadership" yesterday. It is all about: listening, empathy, healing, awareness, persuasion, conceptualization, foresight, stewardship, commitment to growth of people, and building community.

So am I.

It was really nice to learn that there are ways to approach work, and "management" (a scary term for me) from such a perspective.

I bought a copy of "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People" today. Up next - "How to Win Friends and Influence People".

I'm still not very good at networking.

I am glad you are exploring new world. I read that habit book long time ago. I think I liked it. I don't know if I will like it by now. (you may want to buy their organizer.. it's super expensive!)

The thing is, when money involves, any good theories can be read differently. Sad.

I think I might be addicted to books. And noodles. I need the ocean. I want to know everything. Almost. I love love. And loving things. Like love. And like.
