Dr. Isaiah Hankel is
“a Doctor of Anatomy and Cell Biology and has worked extensively as a Fortune 500 consultant in the biotechnology industry and with some of the world’s leading corporations, including Amgen, GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer, Roche and Genentech. He has also presented at many of the world’s premier academic institutions, including Harvard University, Stanford University, Oxford University, Cambridge University, The Pasteur Institute and The Curie Institute.”
He grew up in rural Idaho and was diagnosed with ADHD and has worked through the challenges of this to become who he is today. He understands what it means to:
3.2 Exhibit exemplary practice and lead colleagues to plan, implement and review the effectiveness of their learning and teaching programs to develop students’ knowledge, understanding and skills.
He challenges the internal editor we all have where we are talking ourselves down, criticising ourselves, blocking ourselves. He looks at how to get past that and onto creating so we have something to show and have. He looks at how we need to let go and just do whatever we want to do without fear of criticism or failure. Just doing. He then looks at how you change and shape that into something successful by using constructive criticism, rational thought and reason to ensure you have the best you can do. Drafting is part of his process. He gets rid of the roadblocks to learning, focuses on productivity and then insists you stand back a take a long, hard look at what you have done to ensure it is your best. He achieves because he shares his ideas world wide. He uses social media to share his ideas and to get feedback and ideas for growth but at no stage is he thinking near enough is good enough. The first part of the process where you create freely and uninterruptedly is an unfettered growth phase. The second phase uses your skills and ideas. The third phase is critical thinking and learning how to be even better than you thought you could be. Valuing improvement.
