In Chapter 17 of 19 in his 2014 Capture Your Flag interview, business coach and public speaker Jullien Gordon answers "How Are You Becoming a Better Teacher?" Understanding teaching starts by asking the right questions and creating a safe place for learners, Gordon probes deeper to find better ways to hold students accountable. He finds flipping the classroom, providing exercises in advance of the class to focus class time on discussion, hugely beneficial to teaching success. He applies this approach, learned from Khan Academy, to improve how he designs his annual New Year goal setting event.
