Our Minds Are Not Vessels

“The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled.”
Plutarch

Trying to fill people’s brains with facts and knowledge is not an effective way of teaching. If we as trainers, coaches and facilitators can create a spark inside others, so that they will actually love the process of learning, then we’ve done our jobs well.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this topic if you’re willing to share them with me.
