Wit & Wisdom Wednesday - E.M. Forster on Spoon Feeding

“Spoon feeding in the long run teaches nothing but the shape of the spoon.” E.M. Forster

It is Wit & Wisdom Wednesday at Elarbee Media and we wanted to share this classic quote from E.M. Forster. For us this quote is about taking the time to invest in people and in training. "Spoon Feeding" may get the small tasks completed in the short term, but creating an engaged employee that can see what is coming next is real goal. That takes time, patience and candor. It is well worth the investment.
