Towards and Away

Difficulty in your team? In your family?

You could turn away, into your stories, into your certainty that they are at fault.

Or you could turn towards, and begin a new kind of conversation – most likely one you’ve never had before.

It may be that what you really want is to preserve your sense of your own rightness, and hold onto the powerful feelings of self-esteem which resentment and resignation can build.

But if you don’t want this, if you do want an outcome which builds trust and the possibility of ongoing relationship which path, do you think, is most likely to bring about the outcome you desire?

The path of turning away, or the path of turning towards?
