In Episode 53 of The PE Umbrella Podcast, I embark on the first of what will be a series of episodes that explores the 'Five Steps to a Winning Mindset' as described in Damian Hughes latest book. During this episode I explore step one, Simplicity, and how the worlds best leaders and teachers are able to articulate instructions and directions in their simplest form. I reflect on my teaching week gone by and highlight my concern over my own teacher talk time and how I intend to minimise 'pointless talk' going forward. As a result of this podcast, I will be conducting a teaching experiment this week to see if I am able to explain my activities in 140 characters or less, as Professor Hughes urges leaders (teachers) to think like they tweet...this will be documented over twitter and subsequently on the show notes page at www.peumbrella.com. After all... 'It's not about how many balls (instructions) you can throw, It's understanding how many your children can catch'. I would love to hear your own views on my weekly reflections and if you have similar experiences, so what are you waiting for? Come and join me 'Under the Umbrella'
