How do you keep genuine?

This week I was asked a flattering question by a colleague during a mutual buddy chat. He asked:

when you work with junior (sic) developers in a workshop and report back a positive learning to the group, are you genuinely finding value or just supporting the learning setting?

In thinking about this I realised how much has changed in the last 3 years.

I can now admit I am rubbish at dissembling.

I can also find huge value in working with all levels via an “again for the first time” approach, an approach I use every day. It’s refreshing to meet today-colleague as a new person and today-challenge as new too.

Is this a new topic for some?
