Choose Your Focus model: Vision, planning, detail, problem, drama

Listen for potential

clarity of distance (seeing people as their potential, not through our own filters or agendas)

  • Speak with intent: succinct, specific, generous

  • Dance toward insight: permission, placement, questioning, clarifying

  • CREATE new thinking: current reality, explore alternatives, tap their energy

  • Follow up: closing the gap between an idea and a habit

FEELING model: facts, emotions, encourage, learning, implications, new goal
