Teaching and Coaching

Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016) – Coaching

Po: [Shifu has made a flower bloom with the power of chi] Woah! What was that?

Shifu: That was chi.

Po: Wow! What’s chi?

Shifu: The energy that flows through *all* living things.

Po: So you’re saying if I-so you’re saying if I teach, I’ll be able to do cool stuff like that?

Shifu: No, I’m saying if you teach, *I’ll* be able to do cool stuff like that.

Po: Oh.

Shifu: Mastering chi requires mastery of self. Oogway sat alone in a cave for *thirty* years, asking one question: who am I? Who am I? I’m lucky if I get five minutes before you interrupt…

Po: Aw, so now I have to sit alone in a cave for thirty years?

Shifu: Eventually. After you master teaching.

Po: Teaching? There’s no way I’m ever gonna be like you!

Shifu: I’m not trying to turn you into me; I’m trying to turn you into you.
