HBDI - THE WHOLE BRAIN MODEL by Prof. Ann

Saturday's lecture with Professor Ann was an eyeopener! Hay, the whole brain model was a new concept that i had puzzled me when i filled in the HBDI prior to coming for CPD. She explained it so well that the whole class was completely convinced. My God, the professor is so full of life!!! and a little crazy as she sometimes jokes!

What amazed me most was my HBDI profile! What i knew about myself was that i am kind, emotional and loving person which puts me in the RED but finding out that i equally cut across all quadrants except going further into YELLOW when under stress??? that i still dont know!!! 

To be honest, i can never be bored with prof. Ann in class! She is so charismatic, funny, energetic and about all so intelligent. She speaks knowledge in a very funny way that makes it hard to forget. I am honored to have sat or may i say stood, danced e.t.c in class!!

This image is a reminder so that while i plan and work on group projects, i am reminded to no man is an island!

VISIT TO THE VILLAGES
After the long week of studies and assignments that were still pending, CPD2 clan decided that work without play makes us dull.
As we drove to Imbizo, the look at the contrast between Pretoria homes and measurable accommodations in this place was so remarkable! It downed on me and i realized that the Great South Africa also still had a lot challenges like any other African countries. The gap between the very rich and very poor  is so huge that the current and future presidents may require the vision and wisdom of a man already long gone (Nelson Madella). Where he left off, i pray there is another that can at-least fit 3 quarters of his shoes!

BARBECUE AND LOTS OF FUN AT BUSY CORNER

 Aside from that shock, we had a fun evening at the busy corner. 

We ate and drunk, socialized and shared lots of experiences. 

We also danced for over for some time and we shared more bits and drinks! that was a memorable evening in South Africa and i hope that CPD organizers can incorporate a dance (be it traditional dance competitions from various countries and cultures and/or modern music) into dinners to make them more fun. 
I think sharing dances from a variety of cultures also learning aside from enhancing enjoyment of dinner parties. 




 This is where the assignment stress was shed off, real fun!!!
 




After the pork, meat, sour-sages, chicken and a lot of other delicacies that i had never tasted, we say goodbye.
