Who are your greatest teachers?

I've come to realise that teachers come in many forms.  My dogs (both rescue greyhounds) teach me to be patient and persistent in dealing with their, sometimes, eratic behaviour.  A lacklustre response from my GP taught me to sort out my own health. The young people in my life teach me to see things through another's eyes.  And my clients teach me more about myself than I ever thought possible.  At a recent coaching session, I thought I knew what my client wanted to discuss, so I prepared exactly what I was going to do/say to help her the most.  Until...... we started to chat and I asked her how I could help today.  And it really wasn't what I expected.  Needless to say #thinkingonmyfeet helped us through and, as with all my clients, she had the answers herself.  All she needed from me was a curiosity about how she 'did' her problem along with some tweaking so she could see things differently.  I love my job as I get paid for learning, seeing clients grow and flourish and for meeting some amazing people.  What's not to like?

We can develop our personal as well as professional skills through learning and therefore, we need good teachers in our life from which we can easily learn some effective things in life. Knowledge is very much essential for everyone and it doesn't matter from where we gain knowledge it matters from whom we get better learning to improve our knowledge. So it is quite tough to decide who is our greatest teachers.
