Playing your Bigger Game – what does that even mean?
I recently told you about how I fell in love with a model for how to play big in work and life. So here’s a series of posts to help you get started, and possibly you will fall in love too.

Hi, my name’s Amber, and I hope this message is finding you well.

I’m talking today about the kinds of conversations that we have, and right now in the world, there are a lot of conversations that are uncomfortable, tactical, fear-based, concerned, and understandably so. 

It’s making me think about one of my personal drivers, and it’s something that drives me forward in the world is the real hunger for a productive conversation.

 For example, if we’re talking about what we’re afraid of, and the concerns that we have, that at the end of that conversation, we’ve moved to a different place where maybe we’ve drawn comfort, we’ve released the tension, that something useful and productive has happened.

That we’ve moved forward in our life in some way.

One of the things that I’m offering right now is a coaching conversation free of charge to people if they want to do that with me.  I’ll help you have that conversation where at the end of it, it’s moved you forward in some way; it’s been productive in some way.

There’s no obligation. It’s just that I have skills that I want to put out into the world, that are available to people.  Lots of people have concerns about their finances, what’s happening with their work, how do they keep their family safe. That’s something I’m just offering out.

But in terms of how do we have productive conversations, this is where I also draw to the model of “Play Your Bigger Game”, and the Bigger Game board.

It’s a model and a tool that really puts you into a conversation that’s going to move you forward.  That’s why I fell in love with this model.  I had the hunger and the drive to go out and get certified in being a trainer for this model, and for bringing it into my day to day life and using it to change the way I have my conversations.  It’s helping them be more productive.

They’re not easier, and I have to say I’m in a lot more challenging conversations now than I’ve ever been before.  But they’re productive, and they move me forward, and that’s something that I would love for you. 

So I invite you also to check out my other blogs and posts I have about Play Your Bigger Game, or go to the Bigger Game website and read Rick’s website and the details on how you can start to change the conversations that you’re having that make them more productive.

Keep well!
