Connecting to the Future

I have long been a proponent of the need to connect with people on their level, in terms and methods they understand and appreciate (especially when those are different from your own style) if you want truly inspired performance and results. I think this is just as, if not more, important when it comes to teaching and inspiring the next generation. Sir Ken Robinson illustrates this brilliantly, and hilariously, in this wonderful TED talk. I hope you can take the time to listen to it all but if your time is tight, just listen to the last 5 minutes, you'll get the message.
