As a lecturer at Harvard Business School, Ryan's guest Mark Roberge’s teaching style mimics the values that the school holds. At Harvard Business School, the focus is put on great teaching, rather than the typical priority of high profile schools: research.
Harvard accepts only the top 1/3 of professor (?) applicants - go below, and you’re out. Roberge is humbled to be included in the group of HBS lecturers. Harvard emphasizes continuous learning and has established a team of teachers teaching teachers. They review lecture films, like a sports team does for past performances, and then give each other feedback in order to improve. Learning to teach well is not unlike learning any craft - such as sales.
