This beautiful video demonstrates what it means to explain a high-level concept in five different layers of complexity – first to a child, then a teenager, then an undergrad majoring in the same subject, a grad student, and, finally, an expert.

The video, the conversation about gravity, that the astrophysicist Janna Levein has with the child, is a world apart from the conversation she has with another expert in the field.

Janna is sensing the level of knowledge of the person with whom she is talking and adjusting the conversation to that level. It is quite magical. Knowledge is best shared through face-to-face conversation.

You will find several similar other sets of conversations on a variety of concepts here if you are interested.




If you are interested in Knowledge Management, the Knowledge Café or the role of conversation in organizational life then you my be interested in this online book I am writing on Conversational Leadership
