“I’ll say nice things about your workshop / coaching if you spare me the pain in learning about myself.”
I was reading an article, and there is a line like above (I modify it a bit). The collusion we can get into unconsciously…. e.g. probably simply with an exchange of eye contact and smile. The question is ‘Am I colluding?’ Or I should say ‘To what extent I am colluding?’ I think it is an important question to reflect on from time to time. This is for everyone who is in the business helping others develop.
