Today I remember to learn from those I lead. In my teaching seminar, instead of lecturing the entire time, I’ve learned to ask the participants, “How would you teach this? or What’s your best tip on teaching this?”
In a larger sense, I love to believe that every person I meet has something to teach me. It fosters a curious mindset, a hopeful expectation, and a certain joy. Over the years, the belief continues to build humility to fight arrogance and a sense of having already arrived at wisdom.
Every person we meet has a unique story, beautiful dignity, astonishing complexity, and insight just because of who they are.
