Basil Fawlty Gets Lost In Translation

The Importance of Understanding

Comedy, with a dose of wisdom too... ?

By Kris Deichler, Associate Partner & Mentorship Coach, Lighthouse International

Have you ever had one of those moments where you realise the other person just doesn't get what you're trying to get across to them, or vice versa? Then you'll probably empathise with Basil Fawlty in this classic clip as a tribute to Andrew Sachs (Manuel) who passed away recently. It's a great reminder of how important it is to make sure we understand each other in life. It's not just a language thing either, we all interpret things differently so it takes effort at times to make sure we're on the same page as someone else... It can save you a lot of frustration and even arguments later on though...

Wait! There's more...

Having been quite a shy kid growing up, there's nothing more moving to me now than seeing someone start to realise their real potential and believe in themselves a bit more... It's one of the best feelings ever! For me, Legends help us all to see more of what's possible and start to aim that little bit higher in life. It's so important to have fun and enjoy ourselves along the way too... Have fun, never stop learning and share as much as you can with others
