This audio presentation by Oliver DeMille was delivered as the Keynote Address for the 2007 Salt Lake City TJEd Forum.
After the 7 Keys of Great Teaching:
- Classics, not textbooks
- Mentors, not professors
- Inspire, not require
- Structure Time, not content
- Quality, not conformity
- Simplicity, not complexity
- You, not them
…comes the New 8th Key: Secure, not Stressed.
Oliver delivers these timely remarks before a live audience and illustrates the 4 Levels of Leadership Education:
- Genius Mentality
- Pioneer Mentality
- Warrior Mentality
- Secure Mentality
The way to become “Secure, not stressed” is first, to know that you’re doing the right thing, and second, to know that you’re doing the thing right.
