Groundhog Day conversation

I was recently working with an executive team and we were having a "Groundhog Day" conversation - the same one we've had on several occasions. I then asked the team a question: "When is it time for you to put an issue to rest and move on?"

As we were discussing this, I got my answer: "when I no longer have any negative energy on the issue." I shared this with the group and they all agreed this was also the case for them.

With this insight, we proceeded to find out what it would take for each of them to remove the negative energy they had around the issues we had been discussing. As people thought about this they realized that when they changed the context (story) that they had been telling themselves, most of the negative energy went away. The results were incredible! The rest of the meeting was spent on moving through the issues without very little resistance.

The next time you find yourself having a "Groundog Day" conversation with someone, you may want to keep this in mind.
