My name is Stephan Huang. The year 2014 would mark my 10 years in the seminar and teaching business. I started out knowing nothing about teaching, with self esteem issues and without any great content to talk about. Today i'm an international speaker holding classes and talks for audiences as big as 200 people at a time to classes as small as 5 people in a group. There is now over 8,000 people who have been to my seminars, trainings and talks. This did not come easy. Many who have seen me when i began would have said that i was seriously incapable of being a speaker and teacher.. If i can become who i am today you can too. I want to share with you everything and more with you this 30 days if you let me.

Teach it Better Training Day 1
Today i want to give you the 3 foundational pillars of Teach it Better training. The 3 ideas will form the basis of how you will learn and "train" yourself to do better in your field. The great thing about Teach it Better or TIB for short, is it will be generic in application. You could be using a method of engagement taught in TIB to get more response in your seminar or you could use it in a class or you could use it to communicate with your business partners, clients and employees. Parents many of the philosophies taught in TIB is also applicable when talking or teaching your kids.
I'm going to give you the whole smack... i'm not going to keep anything i've learned. All the secrets of engagement and teaching that excites, motivates and initiates action would be revealed to you. If you are on the list..
Pillar 1: Apply Apply Apply
The reason you signed up for this is probably because you want to get something done or achieve something. Maybe you want to become more engaging as a teacher. Maybe you want to be able to keep your audiences in speaking enegagements attentive and exicted to hear what you are going to say or teach. Maybe you want to connect with your kids or the teenager whom you think doesn't listen to you. With all those objectives in mind you want to be able to apply what you have learned here, again and again.
There is a very good reason for it. I learned this many years ago as a kid who wanted to learn how to do this magic trick that was so so so so hard to do.. When i was younger i was really impressed by magicians and how they could do amazing things but as i grew older i would start to see through those tricks and then do themself to impress other people. Many of these tricks could be done easily so i assumed that all magic tricks were easy.. That once i knew how it worked then i could do it myself. And boy was i wrong. I understood this one magic trick really well but i just couldn't do it well. The reason behind it? I did not apply apply apply.
In fact, many of the things taught in TIB are like this. It doesn't work just because you understand it. You need to practice. You need to get smoother with each try. You need not just to understand it but to do it until you know how to achieve the result you want.. the reaction you want.. the magic you want to see..
At this point i want to reiterate again that you can do it. I believe in you. Apply. Apply. Apply.
Pillar 2: Your Library is Never Big Enough
Some time ago one of my mentors told me this "Amateurs Compete, Professionals Create". The true professionals create new ways and better ways rather than just hone current methods and ways of doing things. We all need to be in constant learning and improvement in the communication and teaching and connecting business. The biggest failure is to think that you are already there. To think that you've learned enough. To think that what you know is enough.
The philosophy "Your library is never big enough" is to be consistently adding new tools, methods, mindsets to your plethora of teaching and communicating methods. Always be on the look out for new teachers, books and classes that could teach you something. Great teachers are also humble great learners and students. The greaters speakers are the greatest dedicated listeners. Always be open to new ideas because your library is never big enough.
There is going to be a resource page on my website that i will be sending you to that you could draw upon contents that you could use for any situation you may deem fit But! i want you to go and create your own library of such contents. Be open to new things and you'll learn a world of things.

Pillar 3: Carrot-Egg TheoryYears ago when the Disney was going to launch its fourth theme park they learnt a very big lesson. I call this lesson the Carrot-Egg Theory. After Disney launched the first three theme parks (Southern California, Florida and Tokyo) really really successfully they tried to replicate the same success again in the fourth. Who wouldn’t? The Disney Brand and products are so openly received and huge amounts of money were being made.
They were going to open a fourth one just outside Pairs. All the planning and execution were done based on what how they were successful in the earlier three. Research was done to estimate number of visitors, hotels they need to build, restaurants, rides publicity and every other area that they did for the first 3 theme parks. When the number rolled in, they were puzzled why Disney was not as successful. They realized that unlike visitors in the first 3 theme parks who stayed, on average 3 days, the visitors to the Disney theme park just outside Paris stayed only one day. Why? Because they have planned and built the fourth Disneyland based on assumptions..
What they realized was in the first 3 they built 45 rides so visitors could spend 3 days there to take all the rides. But in Paris they only opened 15 rides; which visitors could complete within a day. But the infrastructure like the hotels and restaurants were all made for the number of estimated people who were going to stay for the average of 3 days. Someone in Disney made an unconscious assumption that Disneyland Paris was going to be the same size and that assumption resulted in over building the infrastructure to service the visitors for at least 3 days of stay. Disney had to resolve this problem much later on.
The Carrot-Egg Theory is that many a times we need to see the same things in different light. We need to handle each case on its own even if it seems similar. This is immensely important when dealing with people. You see the bulk of the people involved in the building of the 4th Disneyland may have thought it was going to be the same but it is not. The hot water that softens the Carrot would harden the Egg. The Carrot-Egg theory sheds light on the fact that as teachers, speakers and parents we need to be aware that same methodology does not work across the board. A highly engaging lesson, talk or teaching could totally have a different result. So even if you apply (pillar one), grow your library (pillar 2), you cannot rely totally on your definite know-how.
Some times I refer this to in the moment lessons. They way you communicate or teach a person or a group of people with a particular personalities may be totally different from another person or another group of people. And that is the challenge of teachers, speakers and parents. I like that challengeJ Do you?
I hope you’ve learned something from the 3 pillars as we will be coming back to them again and again throughout this 30-day training. I appreciate you for going on this journey with me. Can’t wait to share more.
