Could it be that as a teacher, you actually work in sales? Daniel Pink says the answer is yes in his latest book, To Sell Is Human, the topic of both Musicuentos Black Box Podcasts this month. In part 1, I’ll walk you through why Pink says everyone works in sales now, and the three characteristics you need to have in order to be effective in moving others, and exactly how all this applies to teaching, and teaching language in particular. Listen now, and don’t miss part 2 later this month; it was my favorite part of the book, especially the chapter on your pitch.
