We rarely make the best use of all the lessons that we've learned in our professional experience. Most of those lessons aren't lost to us, they're just buried somewhere in memory. That’s a shame, because failing to apply some of the best lessons we’ve ever learned means we can’t possibly be doing our best work. To uncover these lost lessons, we may need a trigger. Author John Labbe found that random pieces of wisdom from other disciplines helped him find lost connections to very useful wisdom lurking in his experience memory. This same trigger could work for you. Random Wisdom Connections presents a series of thoughtful and well-observed reflections for speakers, teachers, and trainers on the shared art of teaching. Each reflection was inspired by a random quote from a well-known person in a field completely unrelated to teaching. In Random Wisdom Connections, you’ll learn: · How Woody Allen inspired a whole new method for organizing a keynote speech. · What the study of astrophysics has in common with corporate training. · Why you should prepare presentations and lessons as if for publication in The New Yorker. · What Rod Serling knew about dancing rabbits, and how it can improve your speaking. · What a handkerchief, a French judge, and an election can teach you about telling stories.
