Often we are first victims then, consequently, actors of an educational malpractice. We get taught to climb trees and are being judged for that from teachers and parents. And then, when we grow-up, we often do the same with ourselves, our families and colleagues. Or similar to climbing: doing long runs or swimming by wagging the head.
Whilst waiting for policy-makers to change the system, we can stop this insane legacy. Everybody is a genius in his/her gifts. Spirit. Authenticity. If we actively search for it, through coaching for example, we will even find out that what looks as our biggest weakness is, in fact, a strangely-wrapped gift, our greatest strength.
