Or really, lack thereof.
I've found that in my after I am now less likely to persevere or pursue things when I lose respect for someone. And it doesn't take as much to lose that respect any more.
I've identified this mostly through my experiences in an online training course I started mid-last year. This is something over and above my university studies, but something I'm interested in doing as a volunteer rather than as paid employment.
The trainer seems to not take into account any prior knowledge or experience, especially if it comes from a different sector. In one assessment I got told I don't know what I'm talking about, never mind I worked in the sector for 8 years professionally and kind of know how the deal goes.
Then on another task, I get told to basically change my personality, which I countered at the time and received a back-tracking email from her.
I've still not finished the course, and I want to, but this facilitator has really put me off.
I hope to get it done, to pull my finger out and just knock it off by mid-year, but I just don't want to deal with her!
It keeps going on my to do list, and keeps slipping to the bottom. Even doing the ironing takes precedence and I HATE that particular chore.
Thing is, I'm not alone in feeling this way about the course. Someone I met at the face to face component is feeling similarly (and she actually works in the profession, just topping up her certification!).
Oh and yes, this other person...
