Change perspective & rethink your mind: It's all a question of technology

Moving the perspective gains new insights, eliminates blockages and progresses faster. But how to change the perspective? For example with the not-yet-or the chance-technique.

new-perspective

All a question of technology

“The belief that one's own point of view is the only reality is the most dangerous of all delusions,” said Watzlawick. For example, anyone who believes that the colleague who “shoots across the board” in the meeting has “lost a wheel” inevitably leads to escalation (or resignation). If, on the other hand, you are of the opinion that your colleague only needs an outlet for his excessive creativity (self-expression, enthusiasm for innovation, activity ...), give him his Five Minutes of Fame - and then the meeting continues; undisturbed, efficient and quick.

"What? Doesn't that bother you? He just wants attention for his crazy ideas? ”In training courses on (self) management technique of changing perspectives, participants often ask:“ How do you come up with something like that? ”Good question. If you are stuck in your own thinking and feeling groove - how do you come up with a new point of view? Or as the train driver said when he raced towards the siding at 180 km / h: "If a switch does not come soon, it will crash."

"Oh, he just wanted attention? Then we wouldn't have had to argue for 20 minutes. Why didn't I come up with it earlier? ”I hear that too in training and Coaching often. Simple answer: Because this new perspective, which is usually only gained ex post, is almost never sought ex ante. We involuntarily argue before we arbitrarily ask the question: Streit is one perspective - what would be another? Many perspective techniques help answer this question. Let's consider two of the most pragmatic.

The not-yet-technology

When faced with difficult tasks, major challenges, setbacks and crises, we often say or think: “I just can't do that!” So ​​we give up or just continue half-heartedly. In coaching in particular, a change of perspective has proven to be worthwhile that only needs one word: still.

Tell yourself or the depressed, “I can't do this yet. We can't do that yet. ”That's not a word, but a whole perspective: Those who can't do it assume immutability and lack of character. Those who cannot do it yet assume a timeline, a process, or more precisely: an ongoing improvement process. Related to this is the change of perspective: "Error? We don't make mistakes. We collect information about how it doesn't work. "

The Opportunity Technique

The budget is exhausted, the customer makes additional demands, the supervisor says: “But it has to be finished by Friday.” Hopeless! Fact? No: perspective. I just see it that way. The opportunities technique has two variants. Variant A asks: “I only see problems everywhere! What opportunities do I miss? Where could they be hidden? ”Variant B asks:“ Okay, after careful examination we have to accept this defeat. What is the chance in this defeat? ”Or as the Americans say: The Blessing in Disguise, a hidden blessing.

The project team in the present case recognized for themselves: “At least we are strengthening our competence in crisis management! Who knows what it's good for. ”Incidentally, the latter is also a nice reframe, a reassessment of a situation, a change of perspective. Not far from this is the perspective variant "The good in the bad": "Even if 99 percent are bad - what is that one good percent?"

Practice creates masters

All the tried and tested techniques for changing perspectives light up immediately and are played by the blade. However, the central prerequisite is: like all highly effective techniques, they need some practice.

Anyone who is new to driving can drive a Polo, but Nico Rosberg's Formula 1 bullet requires driver training. After completing training (do-it-yourself, in a group, in a seminar, in coaching ...) they are great fun. So let's look at some of these techniques that allow a whole new way of looking at things.
