How many training sessions have you attended where you felt completely zoned out? How often did you find yourself falling asleep reading the theory-based educational program? When I reflect on times where I enrolled in a program to advance myself, I recognize one common denominator: the educator. To what extent does an educator influence your interest and retention in the material being taught?
Sure, most often you enrol in a course because of a personal interest or at least for some form of a personal gain. However, not every advancement goes as planned; maybe you felt too inexperienced, or found self doubt. But what I truly recognized was the ability of an Educator to greatly influence my thought, my behaviour, and my future decisions.
I am, without a doubt, a Type A personality. I consider myself to be a strong-minded, self-motivated, independent woman. Not to toot my own horn, but I am not easily influenced by my peers, family members, or even my industry friends. Educators play a completely different role in our lives - their main purpose is to influence YOU!
When it comes to investing your own hard working money into your education - shouldn’t you receive the best education? I’ve attended expensive seminars where the speaker, or educator made me want to crawl under the chair and go to sleep - I was the furthest thing from engaged.
What makes a good educator? What type of personal advancement is actually going to impact your life, or encourage you to make decisions that help you achieve personal growth?
The answer is: PASSION.
Passion is a strong emotion, a powerful desire, and it drives people to achieve certain goals, regardless of how possible or difficult it may be. When an educator feels passionate about a subject, you will most likely be moved by their enthusiasm, hoping to someday feel intensely as they do, and more than anything, you become motivated to apply your knowledge.
