FROM BLINDING TO ENLIGHTENING: HELPING EXPERTS TO TEACH

Have you ever been blinded by the brilliance of an expert’s thoughts and capacities? Yet, you did not learn anything? Often, the brightest minds struggle to convey their thoughts simply and clearly. And admittedly, for them that is a harder task than for most of us.

Still, in order to make their thinking accessible to others – to enlighten us – the challenge must be answered. Stefan takes you on a journey of his work with thought-leaders on how to best pass on their expertise through lectures and workshops.

These experiences have something universal to teach us: The temptation to short-cut where there is no short-cut. The reality of how long the extra-mile really is between reaching people’s minds and delivering a message at their door step. And the appreciation that clarity is almost always the result of personal modesty, resilient vision, and painful compromise.
