Have you ever wanted to get even, or at least teach them a lesson, or just liked to push back a bit, or score some points by being sarcastic? Well, you are not alone, most of us can relate to situations where we have had to deal with everything from arrogance to people being outright rude towards us.

Well, here we are, and things has not developed quite as you have expected it to do, so what now, what are your plans, and is there anything else you can do to improve your situation? It is quite common that plans, strategies, and tactics do not always develop the way we expect and, as in most cases, different factors will have an impact on your business. In most cases it’s something you did not see coming, or even if you did, it was not as great a problem, but in combination with a few other happenings, it can become devastating.

Way back, Monthy Python made a great sketch about a man who would like to pay for arguing, the famous sketch started off with a short dialogue, that suddenly ends with John Cleese saying, "Time is up", and the man answering "No it isn't" and John says "Yes it is". It is so easy to sometimes fall into the trap of expressing an opinion, and ending up in a furious argument over a principal that none of us will ever back down from.

It's quite nice to be able to have a job that you enjoy doing, or in some cases also as your hobby. Recently I was asked by friends if we were going to the UK for business or for pleasure? I quickly replied: business is my pleasure, a remark that can be used once customs are back due to Brexit, just to make it a bit more tricky for them to stop you doing what ever you are doing in England.

"Do ut des" in latin means " I give so that you may give", a form of transaction that occurs in many different relationships . Nowadays I do not watch television as much as before, mostly because I hate all the commercials that interrupts all the time, at best I record a film and watch it later, but in most cases I watch Netflix or some other streaming media when it suits me. The other day I was looking at the German series called "Berlin Babylon", on SVT1, an interesting series in may ways, love watching how people lived in the 1920s-1930s, and how they reacted to the political conditions after the Great war in Berlin.

It is quite interesting to have the possibility to pick someone's brain when you know they got the knowledge you are looking for, and if they have a lifetime of experience that you would love to get access to. It is not always the case that they will give you the advice or answer you are looking for, especially when you either don't have the right relationship with them, or when there is not enough trust between you.

One of the most common request we get from our participants and clients, are that they would like to be more in control, be more confident, and to have a great tool box that they can use in different situations that occur. The issues they bring up, on both sides, are that the customers are not responding, to long presentations, not addressing the right issues, too much time spent on arguing back and forth, price focus and not listening well enough.

When people have treated me badly over the years, I used to become angry or frustrated, now a days I do not care anymore, I smile a little inside and, try to figure out if it is a trained behavior or if I have, by misstake, given them an opportunity to do so. More and more customers ask for real case trainings, or a workshop where they can train how to respond to different attitudes and different styles, depending on what they are trying to achieve or at least avoid in some circumstances.

Now there is less than a month left to Brexit, and if nothing is done by either side to find a suitable solution, then I am afraid we all are in harms way, one way or the other. It is not that easy that just one side will be hit and another will prevail, the world is no longer that simple even tough some people think it is.

There are a lot of boundaries that will be shifted from now on, most of them have not yet occurred to most of us, and some of them will change in such a way its mind blowing. In some cases they will bring back old ways of doing things, and in other cases they will force us to totally adapt to new ways of how we live our life, and conduct our business.
