When creating goals and developing plans people are asked to define an end point, a destination. Then we work to determine how to arrive at that end point. Exploring micro-decisions within the macro view.
I saw an interesting idea on SOL World, Solutions Focused for Leaders, that instead of looking at where we are going take some time and determine how you got to where you are.
Here is a representation.
You are at A you want to get to B = A —-> B
So instead of focusing on A —-> B;
Explore how you went from 0 to A = 0 —-> A;
Then use the solutions and what worked to continue the development towards B.
So the question is;
- We are always determining a path, what have you done well and found solutions in that have brought you to where you are?
- In what ways may you do more of that?
