What does a bottle of Nivea cleanser have to do with coaching you may ask?

I had a problem. My Nivea cleanser had nearly run out. There was still some in the bottle, however it took ages to get it to come out. As I’m sure everyone knows time is not something any one has masses of especially first thing in the morning.

So then I had an ah-ha moment and decided that if I turned the bottle upside down it would be ready for use straight away. Problem solved!

Now, I’m not suggesting that you should get all your clients to stand on their heads! However, looking at a problem from the opposite to how one might expect to solve it is a technique that I often employ. It is amazing how many problems can be solved in that way and it is amazing how it makes you feel too!

Try it and let me know how you get on!

Have an amazing day.

  1. I love this idea of looking at things from a different angle but when faced with the situation it is not something that I find easy to do… I’d love to hear more about this technique… xx
