Mistakes show that we are a just human-beings, not robots or amazing artificial intelligences, and how we are dealing with mistakes, at our behavioural level, makes the difference in creating followers and successful businesses! So if I ask you:
- “Elon Musk is both an autodidact and a didact at heart.”
- “This might sound like an annoying tendency, but he's so good at it that it isn’t."
- “Few CEOs are willing to educate their audiences in this way.”
Because he's an autodidact, he's also a didact — he likes to explain what's he's learned and knows to others
Elon loves to share his ideas and vision with others, no matter they are media representatives, his team's members, or people’s from other cultures, and he speaks what he is thinking, no matter this can be considered a craziness.
If we look at what's he's done 'till today, the fact that his word becomes his actions and a way of living it's a reality!
The key words in this extraordinary approach could be TRUST &LOVE ?!
Coming back to the public meeting, but not only there, when HE find a lacuna in someone’s knowledge the way he makes a learning process occurs is using Methaphores, like the Expressive’s from TRACOM's Social Styles Model love to do, and they are doing so easy and natural, every time when they want to make their point or they want to be understood by others.
Don’t rush in judging me, those who already know the TRACOM’s Social Style Model, I don't put the Expressive’s stick to Elon behaviour, but this guy has certainly a high Versatility factor.
See there this Wonderfull CEO, who is considered for many peoples as a genius, how reacts when he met a confusion to Andrew Ross Sorkin from New York Times about: Fission vs. Fusion - in one of his Musksplainer conversations, occurred when he and Y. Combinator Sam Altman sat down to talk with Andrew Ross Sorkin of the New York Times and the conversation turned to the potential for nuclear power.
So the coolest think about a Great Leader is to live in a world of unlimited possibilities, in what any Mistake is just a simple citizen, what can anytime become a real life breakthrough for anybody.
Finally in my opinion fostering learning is the shortcut to self breakthrough, no matter what life's scenarios bring us to our plate! Hence :
