Have you ever seen how you normally end up discussing the same topics with your family, friends and colleagues, especially?
By Elena H. Ghazale / Executive Coach
If I ask you what troubles you about your job or what bothers you about your partner or children, don’t you end up answering the same? That you’ve been talking about it over and over again, in every conceivable way, and still nothing, absolutely nothing at all has changed?

Do you know what I’m talking about?

The key is to be able to analyse an offer, a situation, a project or anything else from six different perspectives.
Where’s the trick?
The thing is that everyone who’s involved in the conversation must be focused on the same direction, so at the same time there’s no space for ego battles. We would all concentrate and analyse the offer with the same approach.
