Scenario Building


Scenario Building is an activity that one of my clients – many years ago now – encouraged me to practice, as it had the potential for providing wonderful outcomes.

Here is my version of “scenario building.”

          • First, to quiet the mind, sit quietly with closed eyes. Do so to relax in preparation for an upcoming meeting that is 15-20 minutes away, for example. Scan your body for traces of stress and strain. Focus on those feelings without judgment until they subside. Once you feel comfortably relaxed, begin the scenario building process.

          • 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. Your best response.

          • Again, allow yourself to imagine other potential assertions and questions that could be posed to you, both positive and negative, and still 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 become obvious and noticeable. You are preparing yourself for a successful meeting. For assistance with this process, an Emotional Strengths Counselor is available when you’re ready.

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.
