Review by Bertita Graebner:
The Dilemmas of BEING in Business by Dr. Rosie Kuhn.
With lightness, love, and lively like-mindedness, Dr. Rosie identifies with our dilemmas in business as her own. She shares the most frequent choice-points in our business lives via the men and women she coaches.
Dr. Rosie writes a clear profile describing the most frequent types of choice points we may expect in our business life. She also develops our awareness regarding what our co-workers may be going through. She opens the door to compassion for ourselves and others continually facing the Dilemmas of Being in Business. Her 25 years as a business and life coach gives her the atlas from which she speaks. Her model, The Domains of Awareness, describes the chart she navigates from.
Paraphrasing one of her many pearls:
- Is a dilemma -
A dilemma is like a multi-dimensional entity with a life all of its own. It feeds on complexity and emotional angst or pain. A dilemma ceases to exist once you actually choose and follow through with actual deeds.
- Is a predicament -
It is one that exists as long as you fence-sit, remaining inactive and indecisive. There will always be a dilemma - that is life. . . .
She shows us the way through, with questions and insights for us to sit with and to grapple with. A dilemma, like a grain of sand, we continually caress attempting to salve the irritation. The grain of sand becomes a polished treasure of luster – our pearl of insight that arouses our actions toward self-empowerment. Every moment is a teachable moment and we are all in the School of Life.
As Yule Brenner says in the musical The King and I
- Is a puzzlement -
Dr. Rosie suggests we welcome with open hearts all dilemmas as opportunity to choose that which will take us where we say we want to go.
