Join John Ullmen for an in-depth discussion in this video Go for more than results, part of Influencing Others.
…Marshall Goldsmith poses the following scenario as…a personal quiz that many leaders fail.…See where you come out.…You and your spouse, partner, or significant other are going out to dinner.…This night you really want to go to a particular restaurant.…Your partner wants to go to a different one.…And you both feel strongly.…You argue back and forth.…But you agree to go to your partner's choice.…And it turns out that the food is awful.…Here are two options.…Option A, complain to your partner and say this could've…been avoided if you listened to me, the brilliant one.…
Or Option B, don't complain, eat the food, enjoy…being with your partner, and have a nice evening.…We know the right answer is B, but how…many of us are really tempted to do option A?…I hope you do better than I did.…When I first heard Marshall give this scenario years ago it hit me hard.…Because I recently did a major option A with my girlfriend at the time.…Option A is a bad choice.…Because with your partner there is always more at…stake that being right or winning in the moment.…
