What’s your go-to response to a teachable moment? That magic chance to pass on some wisdom or perspective to someone else. Teachable moments come every day to co-workers, supervisors, and managers regardless of your title.

Do you use that moment to make the person think or tell them what to think? It’s the difference between handing them running shoes or a walking stick.

Your answer will determine if this is just a moment or if you are building momentum. That adult or youth will have one answer for today, or learn how to answer the next question tomorrow.

Life is a team sport. Use key questions to build momentum in your team.
