The above statement is turned into people’s need of attention. The focus is shifted from giving feedback to giving attention, with the same goal, to make people more efficient. Only the approach changes: when giving attention, the focus will be on strengthening one’s own solution capacity and creative thinking, you focus on what the other person is already doing well and how this can be used even more. In this way people are stimulated to self-reflect, to grow further from their strengths. By mapping someone’s patterns and blind spots, you can function as a sounding board to give advice on matters that are not yet fully optimal.
From this vision, we work with asking reflective questions such as:
– Why the choice to approach it this way?
– What’s going well now?
– If you had such a problem in the past, what did you do that worked?
Of course, with the aim of getting people to gain insights into their own work and successes.
