Dear Student: Be teachable. No one likes hanging around a know-it-all. Use "I" or "we" vs "you." Everything ever taught, was learned. Rarely is there an original thought or concept. No one wants to be lectured to or talked at or power pointed. Show, don't tell. Think of how it makes you feel if there is a downward glance or arrogant stance. Yeah, that feeling. It feels like dictation or like a dictator. Like right now. So... when one shares from their own humble "experience, strength and hope," people lean in. Read the room. Speak softly. Love, You.
