How well do you instruct others?

Standard

“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?  instructing someone

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.
