Letter: Teacher Invites Public to Presentation on Learning
To the Editor-
As a member of the Point in Common Planning Team, I want to extend a warm invitation to you and your family to attend “The Talent Code,” featuring best-selling author, Daniel Coyle. Point in Common is a community speaker series designed to excite each of us about learning. The Point in Common Planning Team vetted many books, looking for the book and author that would be the perfect platform to welcome and inspire participants of all ages and across sectors.
We are excited to host Daniel Coyle, a dynamic best-selling author to stimulate and motivate actions for ourselves and others as well as create excitement for learning or improving a skill. We often think of skill building as something that occupies our youth, but Daniel Coyle boils down the science and lays the path for improvement in any arena, across life stages.
The subtitle of Coyle’s book The Talent Code: Greatness Isn’t Born. It’s Grown. Here’s How, clues readers into Coyle’s key concept–talent is nurtured. Coyle traveled around the world observing organizations that consistently produced a high level of excellence. He looked for patterns and discovered “secrets” for building skill efficiently and reliably. The applications of Coyle’s research are too varied to create an inclusive list. Coyle will guide participants to implement techniques of coaching, practice, and motivation to help grow skills as an athlete, parent, boss, musician, little league coach, chef, yogi, etc. If you have ever said, “One day I will learn to ___________” this presentation may be the ticket to starting that journey.
Please join us for “The Talent Code” on April 29, 2014, 7pm, Sentry Theater, free and open to the public. Free childcare (with registration at pointincommon.org) is available during the presentation. More information is available at PointInCommon.org.
