MAC Week 3-1DB Quickies: Difficulties starting new programs/breaking the norm
When I took the position that I am currently, I had to learn the role of the Career Center Specialist. Seven high school reside in my county. Each specialist works closely with guidance counselors and all students to assist them in a career path. The specialist were required to turn in a paper calendar of activities each nine weeks. To me that was a waste of paper, so I set up a public calendar for each center that they could place activities in. You thought I was asking them to pull teeth. Finally after individual trainings and demonstration how they could utilize the features, they appreciate how easy to use. Bonus, they don't have to make copies each nine weeks.
