(via Anticipation as Leadership Advantage)

Anticipate the future by observing patterns from the past.

  1. Recurring topics of conversation?
  2. Repeated frustrations?
  3. Consistent language?
  4. Nagging fears? Fear invites foresight.
  5. Points of satisfaction and fulfillment?
  6. Successes?
  7. Failures?

Point out patterns you notice. We tend to get lost in the weeds. People may not realize their patterns. When you say, I notice that you frequently talk about relationships, you tell people they matter.

Others value you, when you anticipate their challenges and opportunities.
