The last decade of entrepreneurship has taken place within a rapidly changing environment of growth, struggle, triumph and confusion.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 15, 9:15 PM

Creativity is a chaotic place to be and for managers this is not where they want to be. They want certainty, but the real certainty is in uncertainty. This requires conversations and embracing the uncertainty along the way. Consider the way we hold curriculum as a plan that leads to learning. When learning does happen, it is because the classroom is a chaotic places where great conversations happen and bring meaning and life to inert outcomes.

John Michel's curator insight, April 16, 7:56 AM

Social changes make it easier than ever to build and maintain relationships that matter. External boundaries such as time zones, location and means of communication have rapidly evolved. People can now share pictures, video, quick thoughts or even their current location with thousands of individuals with just a few clicks of a button. Business is now about rich conversations with an audience all over the world
