‘Great detective work’.
‘You’re a good nosey parker.’
Two same but different, ummm, compliments…..
This ‘high praise’ was given unprompted because of information I’d been able to collect, analyse and sort in a complex life admin situation.
But it made me consider what’s valuable here.
In any complex issue, it’s important to :
- ask the right questions
- gather and document information
- analyse (take a problem apart)
- strategise (put it back together)
- facilitate an agreed outcome (get a plan in place)
It seems I’m tackling a life admin issue the same way I tackle a media or reputation issue, or a brand building, proactive social media plan and I like it
