Expand your horizons

Do you know this type of drawing that likes to be in social networks be passed around on which you can see two very different motifs? The interesting thing is that many of these illustrations allow two perspectives. For example, you can see the distinctive profile of an Indian. Or you can see the back of a plump, cloaked figure casting a dark shadow on the wall.

Suppose two viewers perceive the different figures of this picture without knowing that both views are possible. They would argue endlessly. They wouldn't stop until someone told them they were both right. You can actually look at the same picture and see something very different. It was similar in the examples just given: Seller and buyers had a different image of their respective interlocutor due to their different perspectives.

It depends on our personal perception which side of an image or a person we see first. Our Personality, the influences from our past, our previous conditioning decide about which of the two images we perceive first.

We see them Welt not as it is, but as we ourselves are.

If we manage to detach ourselves from our usual perception, we suddenly see the same thing with others Eyes. Like in this picture: When you first see the Indian, it will be difficult for you to make out the contours of the figure in the cloak. But once these have formed into a shape, you no longer see the profile. Or in a sales talk: If the salesperson had detached himself from his usual point of view, he would have recognized that the Customer only wanted to conduct a result-oriented sales talk.

Change the perspective: an eye-opening moment

The customer had nothing against him personally, he just wanted the reins in the business Hand keep. So what one meant as efficient and direct came across as harsh and aggressive for the other. With such misunderstandings come a number of potential customers through the "rags". If you change your perspective, that's an end. You'll attract customers you previously avoided because you couldn't handle their personality.

The famous aha effect when perception "switches" is the decisive moment. In this moment we step out of our usual frame of reference and gain a different view of the world. Of course this is not always the case light like in this drawing. When it comes to beliefs, years of beliefs, ingrained experiences, our core refuses to accept a new perspective. This requires a certain amount of self-knowledge and that Backgroundwhy we see certain things the way we see them before we can break away from them. We must learn to take off the glasses through which we see the world and put on another one, or even many others. But why would you do that and break old habits?

A small change with big consequences

Discounts for your success (advertising)!

The fact is: a small one is often enough changeto do great things. Think horse racing! The winner often has a nose-length advantage over the runner-up. Or the 100 meter run. Why are the runners diving across the finish line with their upper bodies stretched out? Because they want to achieve a minimal lead that makes a big difference. Afterwards, no one asks how many centimeters or hundredths of a second was the difference between first and second place. Afterwards you only know the name of the world champion or Olympic champion.

So you may only have to do a little on your Behavior change to be among the best. Follow the “winning edge principle”: a small lead means victory. Maybe your competitor's product is just as good, the service just as efficient, and there's no difference in price either. But the small advantage can be that you get along better with your customer because he feels understood by you. And that's why he buys from you.

The crucial question is therefore: How do you delight your customers?

That's how you inspire others

What inspires you? You are certainly very impressed when your conversation partner gets involved in your way of conducting conversations. Let's say you're the type of customer you want: you want results, not time spent chatting verlieren and competently and clear be informed.
