Who doesn’t like to learn new, cool, helpful stuff?
Do you have to, or get to, teach others? You know, teaching other adults, co-workers, children, parents, your boss, etc.
You most likely never think of how effective you are when you teach. So here’s a test.
When a great teacher teaches you, they are aiming for four criteria, to be effective. Bob Pike, the Walt Disney of Training, developed four questions. “Did you?”:
- Like it
- Learn it
- Use it
- Make a difference
Then Don Kirkpatrick comes along and adds to this with his four. “Was there?”
No matter how you slice it as a leader, the more you know and the simpler you keep it, well, you decide.
