Greetings,

We have exciting news for everyone.

The team of international relations has set three general goals.

Our goals are:

  1. Our working language will be English from now on
  2. To become a team through commitment
  3. To carry out two international projects by the end of February 2019

The Head of International Relations, Joonatan Halonen already shared our goals in November’s Projektori. We feel that in order to achieve our goals, it is important to communicate and talk about them openly.

Through this fall, our team has been struggling to find time together as a team. On the other hand, I see it as a positive problem, since it means that everyone has had their hands full with different projects. Then again, in order for the team to function, the members need to prioritise some time for it.

After discussing about these challenges together, we understood that we need to commit more time for the team in order to achieve something great together. As we all know, commitment is an important part in teamwork. Commitment helps us in reaching our goals. For us it means, that everyone in the team participates the weekly meetings, hosts the international guests visiting Proakatemia and follows our team’s shared instructions.

We came up with the idea, that since we are the team of international relations, it would be practical for us to communicate in English every time we get together. This way everyone is able to practice their language skills, which makes the international encounters with our guests and clients smoother and more comfortable.

Our main goal is to execute at least two international projects together during next spring. This is something that we all are very excited about. Through the projects we will learn for instance about educational export and get international connections for the team. In addition, we want to promote Proakatemia and our learning methodology around the world.

These three goals have already had a positive effect in our team’s atmosphere. All of our team members feel that they already are more committed to the team and can’t wait to work on our projects. 2019 is going to be in many ways “an exciting year”.
