What is the other person’s agenda?

What are they hoping to get from this?

As they talk about the issues that there trying to address, what is the outcome that they’re looking for?

Can you give it to them without consequence?

What risk do you take on by doing so? After all, their problem is solved but have you taken on a new one?

Will there be challenges to you if you solve the problem?

Their agenda and your agenda may be in conflict.

In many businesses, people focus on the right thing and make the mistake of neglecting themselves in the equation.

I’m not telling you what to do. That’s your decision because you always have more facts.

I’m just reminding you that there’s more to the process than making someone else happy.
