One of the qualities of every effective leader (regardless of her/his title) I have met is a willingness to laugh, especially in self-deprecation. Laughter releases endorphins, boosts our immune system, activities the deep learning part of the brain (watch kids!), and engages everyone around us. When we laugh with rather than at, we enlist those around us, an act of courage and trust.

But, of course!!
As a (retired) trainer/facilitator, I can't imagine trying to educate/ train/ teach people any way other than from exactly where they are, which is, I think, what you were saying. Conversation is crucial. Corporations may have time constraints, but if you present your changes in a way that only some of the trainees really understand, then you've wasted time needlessly. Another tool that I used every training and that goes beautifully with Conversation is Intuitive Role Playing-cuts the time in half, or better. Great interview, needs to be said more often!

The Inside Story on Practical Leadership
It's a treat to hear successful professionals share the stories of their struggles and "aha" moments of clarity & vision in such a candid and sincere way. I've enjoyed listening to each one.
