"Give a man a fish and feed him for a day.
Teach a man to fish and feed him for a lifetime.''

--Traditional Chinese Proverb

"Teaching about a competence - that is, having workers get an intellectual grasp of the concepts involved - may offer the easiest training approach,
but compared to other approaches.... It has the least effect on actually changing performance.

"Intellectual understanding is a threshold process, necessary for learning, but not sufficient for lasting improvement.

"Deep change requires the retooling of ingrained habits of thought, feeling and behavior.... Changing a habit based on emotional intelligence requires an entirely new form of learning."

--Daniel Goleman, Working with Emotional Intelligence
