Show Notes

“Creativity doesn’t exist when you don’t have constraints.”
-Natalia Matusevscaia

Have you ever been frustrated when you were down a team member or were low on other resources or funds?  What was the gift in that situation?  Chances are, the constraint you were faced with helped you be more creative and innovative.  Today’s guest shares clear examples of this in action.

My guest is Natalia Matusevscaia. An immigrant to Canada, Natalia is a migrant to the domain of educational technology, human performance, and instructional design from the field of education. 

With the deep academic knowledge, secured by two BA degrees and an MA in Educational Technology and Instructional Design, and rich professional experience as a curriculum designer, instructional designer, a teacher, and a corporate human performance specialist, Natalia is constantly on a search to make a notable contribution into the development and professional growth of adult performers. 

Natalia has more than 7 years of professional instructional design and leadership experience and currently supports Fairstone as the Director of People Development. Throughout her career as Learning and Development Specialist, Natalia was part of instructional design groups who provided multiple learning solutions to perfect employees’ performance at Canada Post, Canadian Railway, United Nations initiatives, etc.
