Make a Difference in the World: Be the Punchline

Once again, a perspective shift is where it’s at. For example:

  • Your client wants to ask for a raise but dreads having to “sell” his manager on the idea. What if he could endorse the idea of educating his boss about the situation instead?
  • You’re worried your client is disengaged because she’s been very quiet of late. What if it was because she found the material so valuable, she started taking notes?

“You’ve been set up. Again.” Be the punchline.

How could you or your clients benefit from a fresh perspective?

A Fresh Perspective on Success

In Intelligent, Successful People Are Different From Everyone Else, Carol Dweck makes a fresh case that real change is all about perspective. Successful people, she points out, “tend to focus on growth, solving problems and self-improvement, while unsuccessful people think of their abilities as fixed assets and avoid challenges.”

This is a great piece to share with your current and potential clients. After all, what better way to shift to a “growth mindset,” than to engage a coach, right?!?
