Benjamin Zander on the Art of Possibility

I wanted to share this inspiring video on the art of possibility and how our stance in the world can change everything. Stance is very important for coaching.

This video is pretty long, but the best bits for me were in the first 12 minutes. Some great parts:

  • Letter using Remember the Future for remembering why the student will have been wildly successful (3:43)
  • You can give an “A” grade to anyone – to transform the relationship (4:25)
  • “How Fascinating!” as a celebration of errors to maintain an available state (10:53)

Also, Benjamin Zander has a book with this title (haven’t read it yet).
