There is a lot of talk about win-win, but what does this really mean, and how to we get to this holy grail in our work or negotiations. It is critical that we get the results we desire to move forward. I have given this thought, and tried to put this in my own context such that I can perform appropriately. People talk of conflict ,confrontation, alignment, agreement, resolution.
The world is a complex place, and without stress or constrictive pressure the world and individuals will stagnate. When I face difficulties, I decide to avoid conflict with individuals or partners, but confront issues. I have made a clear distinction between conflict and confrontation, and more importantly people and situations. This requires a level of non judgement . This is more prevalent than ever in these turbulent times, and helps us keep a cool head. In my coaching community we call this level 5 energy where we are all searching for win-win. Lower levels of energy are associated with being the victim, having conflict or just serving others.The beauty about thinking about these behaviours /attributes in terms of energy, is that we can shift our levels of energy.
It is a good place to be, because when we achieve it increases our energy levels, which in turn improves the probability of repeating our win-win environment. If you are interested in learning more about Energy Leadership go to www.accendit-coaching.com
