I’m Johnnie Moore, and I help people work better together

I like coaching and facilitating more than teaching. I’ve written before about the perils of teacher trance. So I like this quote from Claude Bernard:

It’s what we know already that prevents us from learning.

I think the sense of shared discovery and surprise is one the best of human experiences. It might be what love is. Of course it’s fine for one person to teach another something but it can soon lead to narrow emotional bandwidth and boredom for both. In Action Storming it’s useful to suspend the urge to teach people things by telling them, authoritatively, what to do. It’s better to join in the process of discovery by trying something new and different and seeing what comes of it.
