SELF COACHING EXPERIMENT: Rebecca's Nepal Mount Everest Trekking Diary 3/19: IMPARTIALITY

I often thought about how good it would be in our latitudes to cut off a "slice" of this mindset. And what a good practice. As coach, seminar conductor and consultant, I often think of myself like being an unfilled glass. Instead of filling my glass with my prejudices, formative life experiences, (better) knowledge and feelings, I try to deal with every new person I meet with a clear and open mind.
