How to Cultivate a Passion for Teaching - Bijoy Goswami

In Chapter 7 of 15 in his 2011 Capture Your Flag interview with host Erik Michielsen, leadership philosopher Bijoy Goswami shares how he cultivated his teaching passion. He learns when and how to use teaching as a communication tool. He finds he learns more from teaching that what he gives. Ultimately, Goswami finds the greatest reward when a student applies what he teaches to their lives. He reflects back on his childhood and the formative teaching experiences that have shaped who he is today. Goswami lives in Austin, TX, where he develops models, including MRE, youPlusU, and Bootstrap, to help others live more meaningfully. He teaches his models through community activism, lectures, writing, and online communication. Previously, he co-founded Aviri Software after working at Trilogy Software. Goswami graduated from Stanford University, where he studied Computer Science, Economics, and History.
