As a professional speaker I can give a lecture. But success in this area can get in the way.
The best teaching occurs when I ask good questions and facilitate discussion.
Telling people what to do may seem faster but I suspect the slower communication of dialogue and discussion are faster in the long run.
If you are trying to work together the power is often in the middle of everyone’s ideas.
I teach small groups to listen to the middle.
What is the voice they are hearing in the midst of their voices?
That’s where the answer often lies.
It takes new skills and initially awkward times to get there but the results are filled with unity, respect, and focus.
With a common vision the people, couple, family, team, group, unit. department, and organization prospers!
