Todays guest, joining us on the Join Up Dots free podcast interview is Mr Patrick Kayton a man who has spent all his life being fascinated by what makes people tick.
And when it comes to working out why some people learn really easily, whilst others struggle then he is your man to go to.
Is it about the style of teaching, or the style of thinking that helps people learn?
Wow that’s a deep question to start with straight away, but hey, what a great question to ask, as todays guest has built his whole success around developing Cognician an interface needed to create discussions and ask insightful questions within the e-learning process.
Along with his brother, Barry he realised that there was a world out there that felt that e-learning lacked engagement, and was simply a platform based around multiple choices.
And I agree with them whole heartedly.
As they say At Cognician, “We believe that anyone is capable of learning something new if they have the right tools. It’s our mission to make such tools and to create the best online learning experience possible, which leads to sustainable behaviour change.
People don’t change easily. And giving them information won’t solve the problem on its own. If you want to change people’s behaviour, you need to start by changing the way they think. One really powerful way to do that is to give them new questions to ask. New questions turn their thinking in new directions. New thinking leads to new revelations. And these aha moments are what lead to genuine shift.”
Well let’s bring onto the show to start joining up dots, as we discuss the words of Steve Jobs in todays Free podcast, with the one and only Mr Patrick Kayton.
During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Patrick Kayton such as:
How he had a revelation as a kid when he stared at his bookshelf and realised within the pages of those books were littered with ideas and theories!
How people think that they have to keep everything they have, and are scared to loosen their grip even if there is a chance of a better future!
How he recalls two great bits of advice from his Father….Number one: “Life is never a straight line”
And Number Two: No matter what part of your life you are in at that time it will come to an end….whether it’s good and bad!
How he became aware that people think differently and was convinced that those different thoughts made the world a richer place
