We did an exercise at this workshop I was at today....to keep this brief and not bore you with all of the crap you don't give a crap about, part of the problem with the teacher in the scenario is that she kind of lost her way - her intentions were good, she knew where she was but she wanted to go somewhere different and didn't really carve out a new path.
I came up with an analogy saying that she apparently never used a GPS. If I am going somewhere with my GPS and I make a turn onto an unfamiliar road, off the beaten path, my GPS bellow, "Recalculating".
A slew of my colleagues all lit up, it was an instant hit and quite frankly, I felt really good about that. Better, later in the day, I was quoted - made me feel accomplished :)
