    Ep. 220 – Breaking bad teaching (part 2)

    Great courses are not only filled with wonderful and practical experiences, but they are also led by selfless and authentic instructors. In this second installment, I talk about the critical role of the instructor to serve as a facilitator of learning, not a self-absorbed lecturer.

Provocatively Useful

Joe, I simply wanted to publicly thank you for crafting this podcast series. Perhaps we can share ideas that were inspired from your Episode 155 in due time.

I’d be interesting in digging deeper into “What is Fear?” and how we as communicators and listeners in our modern world may be using that word too loosely...and confusing ourselves on why we should speak up (or not), when to do it, and how we might.

In any case, EXCELLENT series, phenomenal episode (#155), and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to others not yet following this podcast

Great advice on communicating for impact

Joe McCormack’s Just Saying podcast takes a page from his book Brief. He provides quick but rich pointers in how to communicate in a focused way to get the desired results. I learn every time I listen.

Great Tool!

Joe’s podcast is a great tool to supplement his course material or listening to it without taking the course. His podcasts are 15 minutes or less and are easily digestible during commutes.

Definitely recommend!
