Warning, incoming first impression perspective after today’s Leader in Me event at DSES:
I remain in loyal opposition to Leader in Me. I consider it toxic to creative cultures and incompatible with neurodiversity.
The tech culture on display at the LiM event was on the heartbreaking side.
We can build a better tech culture.
I’m still coming down from the overwhelm of being in sensory spaces engineered for obedience. CHAMPS classrooms are a creepy parade of compliance. I wouldn’t want to spend a moment subject to the rules and worldview written on the walls of a CHAMPS classroom.
Leader in Me + Champs are not good culture. Reject them and start iterating toward a culture of projects, inclusion, collaboration, and iteration.
