It’s easy to forget what it’s like to be a beginner once we’ve mastered a skill ourselves.
Just like Mr Miyagi guided Daniel through karate fundamentals in Karate Kid, we can learn a valuable lesson about the power of patience and empathy in our roles as teachers and mentors.
In a world where frustration and disappointment often overshadow our attempts to teach others, it’s crucial to remember that empathy is the key.
Let’s challenge ourselves to tap into our inner Miyagi every now and then.
When training a team member on a new skill, take a deep breath, slow down, and offer patience like never before. Remember that everyone starts as a beginner, and our empathy and understanding will empower them to grow and succeed.
With a touch of patience and a dash of empathy, you’ll witness the transformation of your team members as they blossom into true karate masters of their own.
So wax on, wax off, and enjoy the journey!
