What do you think of this summer? Too hot? Or rather, wasn't it too cold until a few days ago?
My point is this: no matter what you think, there will be many people who see the whole thing differently than you do. Although that's actually a trivial insight, but it's always overlooked in everyday life.
Sometimes I jokingly say that as a leadership coach I am at times also an expensive reminder. So, with this point:
Your internal story about this summer has a massive influence on your behavior and your actions (for remembrance: Thinking ➔ Behavior ➔ Action ➔ Results).
If someone has a different story about it (i.e. thinks differently), he or she will behave differently. Thus, they will achieve different results. But it gets even harder: the other person will interpret your behavior from his or her viewpoint. They might also react "strangely" in your view.
Now, here comes the transition to business: we not only think differently only about the summer weather but about everything. It also includes strategies, customer calls, meetings, leadership, communication and so on.
The result: misunderstandings, idleness, and resistance.
You can ignore all this and simply lead with "Command and Control". However, this means that you and your team will become stagnate. A dangerous game in today's world!
