We asked Dr. Jeff Czarnec, “Why is education important?” Czarnec tells what inspired his own insatiable desire for learning.
Education can mitigate a failure to understand the mosaic of viewpoints, experiences and discoveries made by others. A lack of education not only limits the individual to a myopic and truncated view of the world, but impacts society as a whole if this approach to life is adopted wholesale. It has been said that education provides for a world-view of the human condition that leads to cohesive discourse, dialogue and remedy.
Books. My father was a very successful executive in the school-textbook publishing world, and he had a very healthy library of books at home. It led to an insatiable desire to know more, which contributed to my success in college and subsequently as a trainer of police. That, in turn, led to my continued immersion in higher education as a student, program and course designer, and then instructor.
It has allowed for ME to have a positive impact on scores of others. An education is to be shared, it must contribute to the well-being of others and must provoke change where none had previously occurred.
Digital technologies are ubiquitous in the modern world. That's part of the reason the idea of a digitally transformed business has become the focus of so many executives and business owners.
