Reciprocity

Reciprocity…you tend to get what you give.

This is the 4th and FINAL post this week on Change Your Questions, Change Your Life by Marilee Adams, Ph.D. (Berrett-Koehler, 2009). A recommended read for any leader.



In her book, Adams mentions that we’re ALL Judgers to one extent or another. She calls us “recovering judgers” so:

1. Accept that you’re likely to be a default Judger when faced with a problem.
--Her advice: “Accept Judger AND practice Learner.
--Judger begets Judger and Learner begets Learner. Basically you get back whatever you first give.

2. Teams are an especially important place to employ the Leaner Path.
--It takes effort and attention to engage others in our life, especially a team at work.
--Have to trust people to find the answers at their own time and place.

There's a lot more of great value in this book. Read it and change your questions, change your life.
