TEACHABLE means; open to instructions, willing to learn, sympathetic. It makes no difference on what position you hold in your corporation or how many years you have existed. YOU MUST ALWAYS BE TEACHABLE to evolve and to develop. We acquire skills and meaning in our lives through our shared circumstances. Strategy is about finances but also about culture, people, emotions, behavior and needs.
If you want to truly understand the people in your world, you must engage with them at eye level. Exchange words, exchange emotions with others. “FINDING THE WORDS IS ANOTHER STEP IN LEARNING TO SEE,” said R. Kimmerer. We must avoid pulling worlds apart in an attempt to assemble facts. This will only have us miss everything that can shed light on human behavior. WE MUST ALWAYS BE TEACHABLE
Many masterful leaders, knowledgeable and experienced describe policy and operation as an extension of their body. It is a part of them and they are a part of it. The NATIVE AMERICANS call this LONG BODY. If they play a sport or musical instrument or use a paint brush. That which they hold in their hand is an extension of their body, and so the LONG BODY. With that pure belief, they therefore have better control of their movements as if it is their arm or hand.
Too many of us have lost touch with HUMANITY. ALWAYS BE TEACHABLE. We must make decisions on what will look good for ALL and not on what will look good for our image. LEARN TO SEE. ALWAYS BE TEACHABLE. SEE OTHERS IN THEIR WORDS AND ACTIONS, AND BE TEACHABLE FROM THAT ENCOUNTER.
