George Couros starts off this conversation with Naomi Toland by asking the question: “Would you want to be a learner in your own classroom?” This episode of The Innovator’s Mindset Podcast discusses empathy in education and the life experiences of a traveling educator, Naomi Toland. George also shares one of his most embarrassing moments in this episode. Naomi shares her experiences working in different countries as an educator. Naomi goes in-depth to her experiences as an empath and explains more about what she has learned about the mental and physical impact that has had on her. Naomi also shares her knowledge on neuroscience and more in this episode of The Innovator’s Mindset Podcast.
Naomi Toland and George Couros talk about this quote: "Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change." - Stephen Hawking. The two continue the conversation and Naomi shares some of her learning on neuroscience and ends with this idea: “What we can do in our own thinking is catch the thought we have, challenge it...and then create a new thought, or we can say that thought is something I want to hold on to. It is okay to have those initial thoughts but what we do with them is really important.”

“Would you want to be a learner in your own classroom?” - George Couros
"...empathy not at the expense of ourselves..."
"The more that we can understand ourselves and understand those in front of us, the more that we can help those in front of us."
"I want people to look inside and see why...put up the mirror and see what is going on."
"Our choices have an impact."
"Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change."
