#09 | Richard Brandt - Work lessons from Ghana
Get a different perspective on work: Richard Brandt, Founder of Codetrain in Ghana, Africa, shares insights about work in Ghana which is not only about yourself, but about the community and being beneficial to other people.
We can learn how Ghanaians are looking at problems from the very basic core without taking anything for granted, so they might detect lots of opportunities along the process which can be essential for driving innovation.
Richard explains how they make sure to train their students based on their individual strengths, why Ghana brings a lot of advantages and why it might become THE tech hub in Western Africa. We learn about the role of women in work and why they’re about to run in similar family vs career tradeoffs soon, which have not existed in the past. He reminds us that work is about solving problems after all.
