“Show me and I forget
Teach me and I remember
INVOLVE ME and I learn”
quote from Benjamin Franklin
Parents, teachers, coaches, managers, leaders–when it comes time for you to instruct someone else about something, do you ever ask yourself HOW you are doing that and HOW EFFECTIVELY you are doing that?
How much of your instruction is two-way where you are not only instructing the other person, but really engaging with the other person and getting their feedback AND allowing them the opportunity to do the skill by themself (under your watchful and encouraging eye)?
If you are regularly teaching by giving speeches, maybe its time to consider a new approach.
