So often we feel (and behave like) in every situation there is a winner and a loser. Some people have even developed personalities based on these Win-Lose or Lose-Win concepts:
- the high-profile business person who claws his/her way to the top, always winning
- the doormat, always losing
The idea of a Win-Win situation seeks greater benefit for the family, business, community, cause at large.
A person who wants to work for Win-Win situations must have three characteristics:
- Abundance Mentality
Fighting for Win-Win is a balancing act between being confident and empathetic, couragoues and considerate.
Win-Win situations allow for synergy and symbiosis (ask Jennifer’s 2 year olds what that means, if you don’t know. And yes, there’s a story there). It doesn’t mean that occasionally we don’t sacrific for the good of others – or win a competition – it means that in moments of choice we begin to think, “Is there a third, better alternative where everyone wins?”
In this episode Jennifer discusses all of the above, plus how Habit #4 builds on the first three – but how it is also vastly different.
