The frame, or how one looks at a situation, determines his or her point of view and subsequent action concerning it. When you reframe something, the facts remain the same, but the meaning changes, and thinking and behavior also change with it. This book shows how reframing in business settings can influence such things as sales, customer service, training, attitude, and the way people think and act. It includes examples of how reframing can improve customer relations, increase sales, and clarify communication. It also discusses positive and negative reframing and ethical considerations.
