Recently, my client suffered because whenever entering a team meeting her stomach automatically tightened up. Why? Well, the team liked to play “rational tennis” 🎾. Everyone focused on stating their point of view, one after the other, but no one seemed to listen or simply rejected what has been said by stating “No, it should be this way.” As a result, problems remained unsolved and many colleagues felt confused about how to move issues forward. This situation offered a perfect opportunity to introduce her to the concept of 𝗺𝗮𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗮𝗻 𝗲𝗳𝗳𝗲𝗰𝘁𝗶𝘃𝗲 𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗺𝘂𝗻𝗶𝗰𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗮𝘁𝗺𝗼𝘀𝗽𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲, which can facilitate better discussions and outcomes.
