Karen Ostenried's curator insight, March 12, 2014 8:09 PM

Remember people learn from you in 3 ways, audibly, visually and kinaesthetically. Which is why what you do with your body including your face is also so critical. 

Dave Wood's curator insight, March 14, 2014 6:58 PM

The first 2 sentences of this article sum it all up:

"On average, your readers will only read 28% of the words on a page.

Can you tell your whole story in 2-3 sentences? Probably not."

 

As graphic/visual coaches this reinforces the value of recording and working through visuals to support and enhance  the normal  talking and  note taking.

Raquel Oliveira's curator insight, March 15, 2014 1:26 PM

t is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end. – Ursula K. LeGuin

This is the story of how and why the Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) was created.  It’s the first in a series of tributes to celebrate the upcoming 25th anniversary of a program whose main mission is to improve the competitiveness of small and medium manufacturers in the U.S.

The year is 1985. There’s growing concern about a competitive threat to U.S. manufacturers from Japan. Higher quality, lower costs – much of it the result of what’s come to be known as the Toyota Production System. What to do?
