Week 2, Activity 4, Your organisational identity

Think about the kind of person you tend to be in your organisation, rather than at home, socially or in the community. Make some notes along the way. Are you a commander? A facilitator? A provocateur? A mentor? Or someone else?

Think about where these identities come from – from your workplace or somewhere else?

Summarise and describe your thoughts in the forum. Now also ask a question of at least two other learners – these questions should help your fellow learners open up their thinking.
