Recently I was reading The 7 Habits of Happy Kids with my second grader. We were discussing the habit “Think Win, Win”, after reading the chapter I was reminded to try and think “Win Win” in all aspects of my live.
Lately at work I have noticed this idea of thinking Win Win as well. When we work with the expectation that when you win, I can win as well, it changes the mentality of projects. I have seen people become more engaged, new solutions arise, and sometimes the project goes in a direction that no one believed it could take.
How would you like to win, and have everyone around you not only share in your glory, but have their own glory as well. Change your mindset and see what happens.
What helps you think Win Win?
What was your last win and who did you share it with?

FranklinCovey has been known for its world-class instructor-led training (ILT). But a few years ago we realized that we also needed to provide our training online, or we would be trampled by the digital revolution that was steadily moving across the globe.
We were faced with a big challenge. We needed to create an online experience that would accomplish our goal of maintaining world-class instructional design and a high quality learning experience. We started our make-over with just a handful of team members, including a couple of marketers, an Instructional Designer, a Facilitator, and a techie, and a proven platform. › Continue reading

As my daughter completes her senior year in high school, it strikes me that, in the U.S. anyway, many of our milestone celebrations have gotten bigger and bigger over the last 20 years. In the month of May, I will be attending senior breakfast, senior athletic awards, senior academic awards, senior choir performance, after-Prom (senior’s parents are expected to volunteer)—not to mention my attendance at numerous graduation parties and my expected contributions to the senior video, the senior scrapbook, and the individual tribute to my own senior done in the shape of a guitar. Seriously.
I’ve seen similar increase in the intensity in weddings, “coming-of-age” celebrations, and even yearly sales conferences, both ours and the many client’s conferences at which I speak. In a good year, at a Fortune 500 company, you’re looking at cheerleaders, fireworks, gifts every night in your room, and elaborate activities like race car driving on top of the usual recognitions. › Continue reading
