As part of our school-wide strategic planning process, the faculty and staff at LCS are on a mission to explore; to search for innovative practices and models across industries, to better understand and consider three questions:

  • 学生在未来需要哪些技能?
  • 世界是如何变化的?
  • LCS可能需要如何改变?

其中一个小组,包括5名工作人员和学校及基金会负责人Anne-Marie Kee,最近前往渥太华访问了两个地方。渥太华 渥太华大学 参加 艺术创新小组--激励艺术学院的创业者Shopify公司。 一个由37岁的亿万富翁托比-吕特克领导的巨大成功的电子商务公司。 以下是我们此行的一些关键收获的亮点。

创建一个能激励和完成任务的工作氛围 - 创业型员工

"把事情做好!"这是其中一个鼓舞人心的表达方式(一个更礼貌的版本),安装在Shopify在渥太华的9层办公室的墙上。 这是该公司员工要遵守的话语。与 "像业主一样行事"、"为长期建设"、"简单 "和 "在变化中成长 "等短语组合在一起,它们代表了渥太华企业家Tobi Lütke(Shopify的负责人)的哲学基础,以及该公司试图为其员工创造的工作精神。

While visiting Shopify, we learned from our tour guide, Kyle Acres (a former educator from Greenwood College), that the type of employee innovative companies like Shopify try to recruit, is “T-shaped,” and exemplifies many of the characteristics of an entrepreneur. Possessing a deep vertical skillset in an area of specialty like math, engineering, design or communications, the “T-shaped” employee also relies on a breadth of experiential knowledge and confidence to share (laterally) across departments and teams. The “T-shaped” employee is motivated, creative, decisive, flexible and open-minded; a future-forward thinker, able to see the big picture; willing to take risks; and work together in teams or alone. This combination of skill sets and characteristics aid Shopify teams as they work together to identify problems and troubleshoot solutions. They are the qualities employers, like Shopify, are looking for in young graduates.

了解到Shopify团队使用复杂的项目/解决方案和时间管理模式是非常有趣的,如 设计思维做好事情(GTD approach to help break down big jobs and solve complex problems. Design thinking is a model we’ve used with our students at LCS—an approach to learning that focusses on developing students’ creative confidence while fostering active problem-solving skills; characteristics and skill sets that are already being sought after in the workplace by employers.

以有意义的方式分享新想法的力量

当今天的员工和未来的毕业生被鼓励在学习和工作中变得更加协作和创业时,强调发展优秀的沟通技巧是再合适不过了。参加会议的专家们 渥太华大学的艺术创新小组,主题是。艺术界的企业家领导力--适应不断变化的世界,大家都同意。

  • 未来的毕业生需要有创新精神和适应能力,并了解如何利用他们独特的技能和知识来适应不断变化的就业市场。
  • 他们可能会开辟自己独特的职业道路,在他们的一生中会多次改变方向,他们必须做好准备。
  • 他们必须能够很好地沟通。

Having the ability to synthesize new ideas and share them in a meaningful way will be critical to their success. Developing strong communication skills and encouraging a passion for continuous learning will ensure future graduates remain relevant, resilient and brave.

At Lakefield College School, we can do our part by encouraging our students to read voraciously and broadly, to connect the dots in order to see the big picture, to get out of their comfort zones, seek out mentors and build their support networks, to find inspiration, seek out their passions and get things done.
