There has been some interesting stuff that Apple has been sharing lately or leaking from it’s organization. Below is an Apple recruitment video:
And then this letter to new employees:
Here are some quotes that I found extremely powerful from the video:
“You will get more out of working here for two years than you will get out of working at another company for 5 years…easily.”
“There is a lot of places that you can find ‘happiness’. Work, when structured right, is one of the places that you can find meaning.”
“You don’t come to Apple unless you are really good at what you do…the reason you are here, the reason you are hired, is because you are at the top of your field, or you have the potential to be at the top of your field.”
I would love to know what others do to create this type of environment in schools? Honestly, our kids deserve to learn in this type of environment, so how do we go on to creating/fostering it?
Just thought I would share since these are both extremely powerful things that we should be looking at as we head into the next school year.
“..if you get the right people in the room with this notion of ‘let’s just do something really great’, then great things can happen.”
