Bosses and Sherpas

There’s no need for hierarchy in my workshops. I want to be a guide to the participants.

I don’t want to be the boss who is up one rung on the ladder.

I want to be the sherpa who can take them on a learning journey.

I don’t want people thinking “he’s the teacher, I better listen.”

I want people thinking “it’s time to learn, let’s do our best.”

I’m not there to give anyone¬†the answer key.

I’m there to help people when they’re struggling.

Would you rather be the sherpa or the boss?
