I am a Native speaker from Canada. I have taught ESL to adults and children of various levels for 5 years, I have worked privately with struggling students who had learning blockades and helped them repair foundation gaps in their learning. I have taught both in a classroom and at home with my children; who were homeschooled for 14 years. I am fluent in English and French. Many years ago, I taught in a Montessori preschool combined with the Waldorf pedagogy that I employed while teaching my kids have allowed me to acquire unique, non-conventional techniques. These methods present the lessons fluidly rather then disjointed. A softer and more simplified way of learning abstract grammatical notions. In a sense, these to pedagogy have taught me how to present a lesson in the most natural way for learning.
Research published this year by Harvard and Stanford Business Schools suggests that health problems associated with job-related anxiety account for more deaths each year in the US than Alzheimer’s disease or diabetes. It is likely that the same is true in the UK.
The combination of the Amazon story and the recent study into the impact of work-related stress means that there are important questions that all organisations should ask themselves.
These include: What type of management culture do we foster? What informal conflict management techniques do we offer to foster healthy workplace relationships? What are we doing to enable people at work to enjoy their jobs and thrive, both psychologically and physically?
Scott teaches non-violent communication techniques that help managers live healthier productive lives.
