Aprons flying everywhere, strict instructions on hand washing, and booming guidance coming over the clatter of pans, pots, and furious knife chopping.
Have you ever watched a brilliant teacher at work? Last week 40 Chief Marketing Officers from Seattle met for the first time ahead of Evanta’s CMO Executive Summit. Usually prior to these events there is a dinner, maybe an after dinner speaker, and polite conversation.
This time it was different.
We were at Hot Stove Kitchen in Seattle cooking our own dinner.
Now, if you want to learn how to make crab cakes, restaurant guru and business extraordinaire Tom Douglas is the perfect teacher.
It occurred to me as we sat down and devoured the delicious meal that we had created, it is all about the teacher.
If you have ever known a child to get a not so great teacher one year, you know this is true. The impact it has on the child and the whole family. Same applies at work.
Do you know who your very best teachers are?
Are you helping or then removing those teachers who cause more harm than good?
What do you wish your organization could learn and how can you or others best teach them?
Tom Douglas’s cooking school was a great precursor to my opening keynote talk the next day. Sometimes it’s worth getting people to sing for their supper.
