In a recent Klemmer session that I attended the speaker made a statement numerous times during the session “they are teachers of the moment”. These were great moments that inspired and encouraged the attendees to listen to fellow audience members share a powerful statement.
As we go through our journey of success, we all share and speak great words of encouragement throughout our day. The question we should ask; does anyone else notice that what we say is worth listening to?
In the past year I have taken the “teacher of the moment” phrase and applied it to my life.
At a recent speaking engagement an audience member asked a question that I couldn’t answer. It so happened that another audience had the answer and shared it!
I stated very quickly to the audience that she was the “teacher of the moment” and everyone agreed either by clapping or with a smile.
It’s a great sign of acknowledgement and respect to honor someone who is sharing a key insight or experience and to make a statement that will make them feel important and show everyone that they can participate.
As you continue on your journey to success, keep your ears open and when you hear someone share something that’s awesome say “teacher of the moment”
