What is the best way to test my Literary Agent’s commitment: by way of using Option Solving?

After plugging away with my book Literary Agent over the 18 months, which has also been affected by the pandemic, there is some concern about his commitment to secure a likely publisher. He’s been a little less engaged during recent times, other than perfunctory encouragement. So my mind has turned to constructive ways to test his commitment level.

Turning to option solving to clarify my thoughts, my initial question then turned out to be as follows: “What is the best way to test my Literary Agent’s commitment; considering 1) things have been cooking for lengthy period of time, 2) Covid has been a momentum dampener, 3) have put tremendous effort into project, and 4) my legacy depends on this book?It was appropriate for me to stick with only four considerations to reduce the complexity of any eventual decision, when the ultimate decision moment arrives: despite there being other possibilities out there.

I then set about creating two fresh appropriate yin and yang “bookends”,as these would help keep my intuitive mind focused. Bookends such as these are vital for preventing our fertile intuitive minds from wandering and losing concentration. We are mostly unaware of how powerfully valuable but foot-loose our intuition can be unless we can keep it properly focused on such occasions.   

The two immediate bookends that most came to mind were: “Just keep patiently plugging away” it will test my patience too much;and “Consider a commitment ultimatum” Likely to lose current goodwill.  You will note the italicized detractors associated with these least likely options, which therefore put these out of consideration. Even so, these bookends will now again nudge my intuitive thinking into high gear to find more promising options – see ourLatest Worked Example.

It then demanded that I come up with at least five new realistic options, although I ultimately came up with six after a certain amount of time. I would then be in a position to pursue emotional distancing, which is a form of objective thinking, before making my choice sometime after that …perhaps after 2 hours, later in that day, or first thing the following morning. You can replace my proposed options with any of your own.

While they are all quite interesting, I was now particularly drawn to – Option F: Continue sharing greater LinkedIn ‘Follower’ numbers. Itseemed to offer the most immediate promise for retaining my Agent’s attention. I can then also consider pursuing the other possibilities as time moves on.

What is my colleague’s optimum option to prime his relationship with RM: by way of using Option Solving?

A colleague was recently chewing over how to build upon a serendipitous relationship with the CEO (RM) of a burgeoning biotech company in Atlanta. He knew it would require a rather sensitive non-marketing approach to move things forward after a recent third-party introduction put things on hold until the early fall. My colleague, already familiar with option solving, then decided to utilize the technique to review his most likely options.

His vital initial question then came through as follows: “What is my colleague’s optimum option to prime his relationship with RM; considering 1) BC contact could open new business doors for RM, 2) leave this possibility on hold until the fall, 3) there could be other beneficial mutual contacts for RM, and 4) colleague could gain possibility of an influential ‘follower’?It was appropriate for him to stick with only four considerations to reduce the complexity of any eventual decision, when the ultimate decision moment arrives: despite there being other possibilities out there.

He then set about creating two fresh appropriate yin and yang “bookends”,as these would help keep his intuitive mind focused. Bookends such as these are vital for preventing our fertile intuitive minds from wandering and losing concentration. We are mostly unaware of how powerfully valuable but foot-loose our intuition can be unless we can keep it properly focused on such occasions.   

The two bookends that most immediately came to his mind were: “Hold back for another potential opportunity w/RM” will impede any relation momentum;and “Propose a full-fledged project with RM” likely to be ignored. You will note the italicized detractors associated with these least likely options, which therefore put these out of consideration. Even so, these bookends will now again nudge his intuitive thinking into high gear to find more promising options – see ourLatest Worked Example.

He was then required to come up with at least five new realistic options, although he ultimately came up with six after a certain amount of time. He would then be in a position to pursue emotional distancing, which is a form of objective thinking, before making his choice sometime after that …perhaps after 2 hours, later in that day, or first thing the following morning. You can replace his proposed options with any of your own.

While they were all quite interesting, he was now particularly drawn to – Option C: Encourage RM to send something of interest to MC about vaccine issues. Itseemed to offer the most immediate promise for building ongoing momentum. He can then always consider his other possibilities as time moves on.

What is my friend’s best way of sustaining LinkedIn “Follower” momentum – in light of choosing Option C: Insert weekly articles to invite followers by way of using Option Solving’s “Peel the Onion” technique?

In line with your editor’s friend’s efforts to increase her LinkedIn “Followers,” notwithstanding LinkedIn aims at trying to impose restrictions on networking, she decided to pursue Option C: Insert weekly topical articles to encourage readers to become followers. However, within that choice, it seemed appropriate for her to consider a range of sub-options to Option C, so as to unearth other optimum approaches to maximizing “follower” momentum. She was therefore encouraged to pursue the initial “question-technique” once more to flush out those likely new possibilities. 

Her new sub-option question came as follows: “What is my friend’s best way to sustain LinkedIn “Follower” momentum, through Option C – Insert weekly articles to invite followers; considering that 1) she has already invested considerable time-effort into LinkedIn, 2) LinkedIn imposes “unknown” weekly connect quotas, 3) it is an optimum reader forum, and 4) it requires an extra effort approach to justify Premium fees?It was again appropriate to stick with only four considerations to reduce the complexity of any eventual decision, when the moment arrives: despite there being other possibilities out there.

She then proceeded to conjure-up two fresh appropriate yin and yang “bookends”,as these would help keep her intuitive mind focused. Bookends such as these are vital for preventing our fertile intuitive minds from wandering and losing concentration. We are mostly unaware of how powerfully valuable but foot-loose our intuition can be unless we can keep it properly focused on such occasions.   

Two bookends that immediately came to her mind were: “Keep plodding forward for time being”it will impede strong momentum;and “Push on with hawkish follower campaign regardless” likely to be banned. You will note the italicized detractors associated with these least likely options, therefore putting these out of consideration. Even so, these bookends will now again nudge her intuitive thinking into high gear to find more promising options – see ourLatest Worked Example.

It was then appropriate for her to come up with at least five new realistic sub-options, although she will ultimately come up with six after a decent amount of time. She would then be positioned to pursue emotional distancing, which is a form of objective thinking, before making her choice sometime after that …perhaps after 2 hours, later in that day, or first thing the following morning. You can replace her proposed sub-options with any of your own.

While they were all quite pertinent, she was now particularly drawn to – Sub-Option BB: Insert ‘Follower’ instead of ‘Message’ button to encourage ‘followers’. This relates to adjusting her preferences within her LinkedIn profile.  Itseemed to offer the most immediate promise for building ongoing momentum. She can then always consider her other possibilities at a later date.

What is my friend’s best way of sustaining LinkedIn “Follower” momentum: using Option Solving?

Your editor’s friend is trying to increase her LinkedIn “Followers,” although the venture works at trying to impose restrictions on networking. It seemed appropriate to examine other options for sustaining “follower” momentum. Option Solving is an optimum approach for doing that, so she was encouraged to take the first “question-move” toward finding an optimum solution.  

Her related question turned out to be as follows: “What is my friend’s best way to sustain LinkedIn “Follower” momentum; considering  LinkedIn 1)  facilitates connections with leader members , 2) imposes “unknown” weekly connect quotas, 3) is an optimum, universal forum, and 4) requires Premium fees for questionable extra benefit??It was appropriate to stick with only four considerations to reduce the complexity of any eventual decision, when the moment arrives: despite there being other possibilities out there.

While they were all quite pertinent, she was now particularly drawn to – Option B: Take a week pause and resume on muted basis. Itseemed to offer the most immediate promise for building ongoing momentum. She can then always consider her other possibilities at a later date. However, this is such a crucial issue; she decided to pursue “Peel the Onion” to surface other potential solutions.

What is optimum way to handle invitation to join international OD organization: using Option Solving?

Your editor was recently invited to join an international organization development association, relative to his inquiries about its purpose and possible journal publication. He was sent more than one suggestion; consequently, relative to time and resources, he needed to figure out what his optimum approach might be in the circumstances. This led to framing a typical option solving question.

His related question turned out to be as follows: “What is optimum way to handle invitation to join international OD organization; considering 1) am a relative unknown entity, 2) need published book to help credibility, 3) not member of a high-profile institution, and 4) could add extra credibility down the road?It was appropriate to stick with only four considerations to reduce the complexity of any eventual decision, when the moment arrives: despite there being other possibilities out there.

Bookends such as these are vital for preventing our fertile intuitive minds from wandering and losing concentration. We are mostly unaware of how powerfully valuable but foot-loose our intuition can be unless we can keep it properly focused on such occasions.   

The two bookends that immediately came to his mind were: “Just wait and see”will lose out on initial momentum;and “Offer to take a major role” quite unrealistic at this time. You will note the italicized detractors associated with these least likely options and so help to avoid shutting his other more realistic options out of consideration. Even so, these bookends will now again nudge his intuitive thinking into high gear – see ourLatest Worked Example.

It was then appropriate for him to come up with at least five new realistic options, although he ultimately came up with six after a decent amount of time. He was then positioned to pursue emotional distancing, which is a form of objective thinking, before making his choice sometime after that …perhaps after 2 hours, later in that day, or first thing the following morning. You can replace his proposed options with any of your own.

While they were all quite pertinent, he was now particularly drawn to – Option D: Join as member to put toe into the water. Itseemed to offer the most immediate promise for building an ongoing positive relationship. He can then always consider his other possibilities at a later date.  

Assuming he decides to stick with this new option, after some due emotional distancing; he can then proceed to putting an appropriate action initiative together – WHAT, HOW, WHO, WHEN & WHERE.

What’s a colleague’s best option for keeping client further involved: using Option Solving?

A colleague was concerned about keeping a long on-off client relationship going. There were recent discussions that started the ball rolling again, although now the client became hesitant as his work commitments started piling up once more. My colleague decided to use option solving to help him think through the most likely way to keep things going.  

His related starter-question turned out to be as follows: “What is my colleague’s best option for keeping a client involved; considering 1) client has many priorities to juggle, 2) his leader may wish him to limit outside involvement, 3) he may feel contact has added insufficient value to date, and 4) he may expect certain key value going forward?Again, my colleague was encouraged to stick with only four considerations to reduce the complexity of any eventual decision, when the moment arrives: despite there being other possibilities out there.

He was then encouraged to develop two appropriate yin and yang “bookends”,as these would help keep his intuitive mind focused. Bookends such as these are vital for preventing our fertile intuitive minds from wandering and losing concentration. We are mostly unaware of how powerfully valuable but foot-loose our intuition can be unless we can keep it properly focused on such occasions.   

The two bookends that immediately came to his mind were: “Just let matters take their course”could drift away;and “Offer a completely out-of-box proposal” create a potential conflict. You will note the italicized detractors associated with these least likely options, which help to avoid shutting his other more realistic options out of consideration. Even so, these bookends will now again nudge his intuitive thinking into high gear – see ourLatest Worked Example.

It was then vital for him to come up with at least five new realistic options, although he ultimately came up with six within a decent amount of time.

You can replace his proposed options with any of your own. While they were all quite pertinent, he was now particularly drawn to – Option B: Lay out a clear journey of leadership development using EL phase model. Itseemed to offer the most immediate promise for building an ongoing positive relationship. He can then always consider his other possibilities at a later date.

What is our optimum option for building a positive relationship with XYZ organization- “Peel Onion Prior version Option F: Suggestions to make our corporate membership as constructive as possible” –- “Further Peel Onion – Prior version Option CC: Optimum step in bouncing ideas off “K” before making committee suggestions or proposals: using Option Solving?

Having guided this editor’s friend thus far on this critical relationship journey, she now had to jump into an unfamiliar committee scenario to make her mark and thereby continue building a multi-level connection. She decided to Peel the Onion further to consider her best option for doing this. So now it came down to her next level question based upon choosing option CC: Optimum step in bouncing ideas off “K” before making committee suggestions or proposals  

The friend was now required to derive a new question related to Option CC, which turned out to be as follows: “What is our optimum option for building a positive relationship  with XYZ  organization– “Peel Onion Prior version Option F: Suggestions to make our corporate membership as constructive as possible” – “Further Peel Onion –  Prior version Option CC:  Optimum step in bouncing ideas off “K” before making committee suggestions or proposals: considering it will 1) ensure on right track, 2) encourage me to do my homework , 3) ensure good sponsor  relations, and 4) learn nuances of participation?Again, editor’s friend was encouraged to stick with only four considerations to reduce the complexity of any eventual decision, when the moment arrives: despite there being other possibilities out there.

She was then encouraged to develop two more new appropriate yin and yang “bookends”,as these would help keep her intuitive mind focused. Bookends such as these are vital for preventing our fertile intuitive minds from wandering and losing concentration. We are mostly unaware of how powerfully valuable but foot-loose our intuition can be unless we can keep it properly focused on such occasions.   

The two bookends that came to her mind were: “Dive right in”may tread on the wrong foot;and “Double-check before doing anything” likely to create impression of lacking confidence. You will note the italicized detractors associated with these least likely sub-sub-options, which help to avoid shutting her other more realistic sub-sub-options out of consideration. Even so, these bookends will now again nudge her intuitive thinking into high gear – see ourLatest Worked Example.

It was then vital for her to come up with at least five new realistic sub-sub-options, although she ultimately came up with six within a decent amount of time. She was then positioned to pursue emotional distancing, which is a form of objective thinking, before making her choice sometime after that …perhaps after 2 hours, later in that day, or first thing the following morning. You can replace her proposed sub-sub-options with any of your own. While they were all quite pertinent, she was now drawn to – Option EEE: Write-up and make telephone briefing to “K”. Itseemed to show the most immediate promise for building an ongoing positive relationship. She can then consider picking off any of the other possibilities.  

Assuming she decides to stick with this new sub-sub-option, after some due emotional distancing; she can then even proceed to a further level of “Peeling the Onion,” to clarify other possibilities, although she should also consider putting an appropriate action initiative together.

What is our optimum option for building a positive relationship with XYZ organization- “Peel Onion – Option F: Suggestions to make our corporate membership as constructive as possible”: using Option Solving?

Editor’s friend had a pretty positive conversation with her Executive Director contact of a well known public association by pursuing Option F: Suggestions to make our corporate membership as constructive as possible. The Executive Director suggested that she join a couple of newly formed leadership committees, in light of the friend’s leadership interest and expertise.  

Friend now needed to derive a new question related to Option F, which turned out to be as follows: “What is our optimum option for building a positive relationship  with XYZ  organization – “Peel Onion Option F: Suggestions to make our corporate membership as constructive as possible” – considering 1) phone-call has set more positive path, 2) suggested participate in two CORE leadership committees, 3) requires online –not in-person – committee  activities, and 4) fitting in with library professionals?Again, editor’s friend was encouraged to stick with only four considerations to reduce the complexity of any eventual decision, when the moment arrives: despite there being other possibilities out there.

She was then encouraged to develop two fresh appropriate yin and yang “bookends”,as these would help keep her intuitive mind focused. Bookends such as these are vital for preventing our fertile intuitive minds from wandering and losing concentration. We are mostly unaware of how powerfully valuable but foot-loose our intuition can be unless we can keep it properly focused on such occasions.   

The two bookends that came to her mind were: “Minimal participation”not engender positive relations;and “Take an assertive-expert role within committees” likely to irritate other participants. You will note the italicized detractors associated with these least likely sub-options, which help to shut her other sub-options out of consideration. Even so, these bookends will now again nudge her intuitive thinking into high gear – see ourLatest Worked Example.

It was then be vital for her to come up with at least five realistic sub-options, although she ultimately come up with six within a decent amount of time. She was then positioned to pursue emotional distancing, which is a form of objective thinking, before making her choice sometime after that …perhaps after 2 hours, later in that day, or first thing the following morning. You can replace her proposed sub-options with any of your own. While they all resonated to some extent, she was now drawn to – Option DD: Look to make a key contribution early on that mightshow the most immediate promise for building a positive relationship. She can then consider picking off any of the other possibilities.  

Assuming she decides to stick with this new sub-option, after some due emotional distancing; she can then proceed to a further level of “Peeling the Onion” to clarify how she should go about doing so.

What is our optimum option for building a positive relationship with XYZ organization: using Option Solving?

Faced with a crucial phone conversation with the Executive Director of a well known public association, a friend of this editor was inviting input on her optimum option in light of an imminent phone call. It was natural to encourage her to use Option Solving to clarify her best approach to the situation.

Her best question attempt turned out to be: “What is our optimum option for building a positive relationship  with XYZ  organization; considering 1) first time contact by phone, 2) may be a lack of trust from communications so far, 3) sensitive cultural challenges right now, and 4) could be a very helpful relationship if done right?” She was encouraged to stick with only four considerations to reduce the complexity of any eventual decision, when the moment arrives: despite there being other possibilities out there.

She was then encouraged to develop two appropriate yin and yang “bookends”,as these would help keep any panel’s intuitive minds focused. Bookends such as these are vital for preventing our fertile intuitive minds from wandering and losing concentration. We are mostly unaware of how powerfully valuable but foot-loose our intuition can be unless we can keep it properly focused on such occasions.   

The two bookends that came to mind were: “Be quite direct in response”could torpedo relationship;and “Lay out principles for a working relationship” could backfire relative to sensitivities. You will note the italicized detractors associated with these least likely options, which help to shut such options out of consideration. Even so, these bookends will now nudge her intuitive thinking into high gear – see ourLatest Worked Example.

It would then be vital for her to come up with at least five realistic options, although she may ultimately come up with six within a decent amount of time. She could  then pursue emotional distancing, which is a form of objective thinking, before making her choice sometime after that …perhaps after 2 hours, later in that day, or first thing the following morning. You can replace her proposed options with any of your own. While they all resonated to some extent, she was initially drawn to: Option F: Suggestions to make our corporate membership as constructive as possible: might show the most immediate promise for building a positive relationship. Then consideration should be given to picking off any of the other possibilities.  

If she decides to stick with that initial thought, after some due emotional distancing; she can then put together an action initiative to help build the relationship onward. Pursuit of Peeling the Onion will then be the next natural step – see below.

What should be the optimal priority for rebuilding US national unity: using Option Solving?

In a post-national 2020 election scenario, there is tremendous national uneasiness within the US about the way forward. Given the right circumstances, it would be useful to gather an appropriate bi-partisan panel together to consider the country’s options for rebuilding national unity. Your editor decided to have a stab at what those potential options might be. This meant starting out with a helpful question.

A likely question turned out to be: “What should be the optimal priority for rebuilding US national unity; considering 1) current deep societal divisions, 2) lack of faith in democratic institutions, 3) country wealth and culture in decline, and 4) tap into desire for constructive and insightful change?” It was proposed to stick with only four considerations to reduce the complexity of any panel’s eventual decision-making when the moment arrives: despite there being other possibilities out there.

Your editor needed to develop two appropriate yin and yang “bookends”,as these would help keep any panel’s intuitive minds focused. Bookends such as these are vital for preventing our fertile intuitive minds from wandering and losing concentration. We are mostly unaware of how powerfully valuable but foot-loose our intuition can be unless we can keep it properly focused on such occasions.   

The two bookends that came to mind were: “Let current divide continue as is”potential civil strife;and “Divide US into proportional domains: A-A, Asian, Caucasian, Indigenous, Latino” too much societal upheaval. You will note the italicized detractors associated with these least likely options, which help to shut such options out of consideration. Even so, these bookends will now nudge a panel’s intuitive thinking into high gear – see ourLatest Worked Example.

It would then be vital for this panel to come up with at least five realistic options, although it may ultimately come up with six within a decent amount of time. It could  then pursue emotional distancing, which is a form of objective thinking, before making his choice sometime after that …perhaps after 2 hours, later in that day, or first thing the following morning. You can replace this editor’s proposed options with any of your own. While all of these should be considered in some form or another going forward, this editor felt that: Option A: Bi-partisan election integrity commi-ssion: for both Federal and State: might show the most immediate promise in terms of reducing tensions. Then consideration should be given to picking off the other possibilities  

If the panel were to agree, they would then immediately set about formulating and setting out a timetable for this commission to be put together. Fresh groups of bi-partisan representatives would be put together to consider prioritizing and producing optimal approaches for the other suggested unity initiatives.
