Synergy Coaching Principle: We are all Teachers and Students.
You may have a strong propensity for learning, gaining new information, and finding answers. Maybe you love being a facilitator, sharing knowledge, and leading the way. In either case, you are both a teacher and a student. As people come into your life, you fill both of these roles and they do as well. We learn more of who we are and our capabilities in relationships.
Let’s use this as an example:
You have a child who is demanding of time and requires a lot of attention. In turn, the parent learns patience and new ways to balance and prioritize. They’re surprisingly creative in their solutions! In relationship, the child has taught them that. The parent is a student of patience and balance. And the child is learning from them independence, responsibility, and boundaries. The parent is also the teacher.
Begin seeing yourself as the Teacher and Student in each of your relationships. It will help you grow and realize that everyday and in all moments, school is in session.
