Reframing

February 7, 2007

I had the opportunity with two different clients to help them reframe and see a situation from another perspective.  With one, I helped her see the positives of a situation that she only saw as a negative.  I also worked with someone on reframing their feelings about “selling their services” to others.  Very often people feel that they might be hasseling or harrasing someone if they try to sell their services.  Rather than see it as harrasement, couldn’t we flip this around to see it as a benefit, a gift that we’re offering to them.  If we believe that our coaching will help someone achieve their goals, then we should be able to think about offering or “selling” our services as something positive vs negative.
