Scenario Building

Here is an activity that one of my clients, many years ago now, encouraged me to practice, as it had potentially wonderful results.

Here is my version of “scenario building.”

Sit quietly with closed eyes. Do so to relax in preparation for an upcoming meeting that is 15-20 minutes away, for example. Once you feel comfortably relaxed, begin to imagine the impending meeting as it starts and turns toward you. Imagine what people may potentially ask or state for your response. Then imagine yourself responding perfectly well.

Again, allow yourself to imagine other potential assertions and questions that could be posed to you, and again imagine yourself responding with a perfect reply.

Continue with this process of imagining potential inquiries and your ideal retorts. The wonderful results that you receive by doing this exercise will perhaps be obvious. You are preparing yourself for a successful meeting.

As an Executive coach and licensed Psychologist, I assist professionals, individual entrepreneurs, and corporate clients with interests and challenges related to personal and professional development. Posts reflect client concerns and actions. You don't need to be an executive to secure coaching for yourself, but you should have a degree of ambition. Strategizing on how your career or life might improve and move forward takes time for reflection, either on your own or through dialogue. Opportunity is required to reflect well upon new and detailed information regarding your strengths and weaknesses. Sound consideration leads to a strategy that produces informed action, which precedes success. Wear your strengths like a badge of honor & be cautious of areas you may tend to error in.
