Dear Mum and Dad …
No not really, but that’s probably how I’d start it if this
was a letter to them.
This letter is to all parents, and to the children too,
because we’re all … someone’s kids.
This one is a hard one to write. Why? Because I don’t have kids. And that makes it hard for me to relate to parents. I tip my cap to you all, because I like time to myself. I’m pretty self centered too. Honestly I don’t really see myself as paternal material. But anyway.
I just read recently that if you spend long enough following someone on social media you’ll learn who they truly are—they’re political alignment, they’re sense of humor, they’re beliefs etc. To an extent I find this to be true, especially when someone’s back is up to the wall, you’ll see their true nature. You’ll see what they will do to survive, and who they’ll sacrifice along the way or . . . you will see something extraordinary.
You also get to learn about people as they observe things. There are those who will watch the world go by and criticize everything around them without knowing anything about what they’re talking about, and then there are those who will blindly say that everyone is simply trying their best no matter what the outcome or effort is—and they are only two ends of the spectrum.
Coaching and Teaching are very closely related! In fact some instructors will often coach during teaching and vice versa. So if they’re so similar how do you know which one you’re doing and when to do so? What’s the difference?
Between Coaching & Teaching-What’s the difference?
Before we go into the differences let’s take a look at what each are.
People are not equal! It may seem incorrect to say but we’re not. Adding to that all clients are also … not equal! Clients learn in different ways, and also have different motivations which have drastic impacts on their individual outcomes.
However in this case—client equality and their motivations really don’t matter, because in this post we’re really looking at when most learning occurs, not how!
If you were asked by someone to explain the difference
between presenting and teaching what would you say?
You’d probably suggest that there isn’t much difference,
Now if you were delivering training, would you know
whether you presented or whether you taught?
Chances are you’d be wondering ‘Aren’t they the same
