  19. 19. SIX PARADIGMS OF HUMAN INTERACTION Win-Win Win-Lose Lose-Win Lose-Lose Win Win-Win or No-Deal Made By: Abdul Haseeb
  20. 20. Competition can be very healthy. It drive you to improve to reach and stretch but it becomes dark when you use it as a way to place yourself above others. Comparing your self with others. This is cancerous and will only lead to bad news. It will make us feel inferior to others. The only thing you should compare yourself to is your own potential. Made By: Abdul Haseeb
  21. 21. Win/Win is not a personality technique. Its a total paradigm of human interaction. It comes from a character of integrity, maturity, and the Abundance Mentality. It grows out of high-trust relationships. It is embodied in agreements that effectively clarify and manage expectations as well as accomplishment. It thrives in supportive systems. Made By: Abdul Haseeb
  22. 22. Win/Win seeks mutual benefits in all human interactions. Win/Win means that agreements or solutions are mutually beneficial. Win/Win is the belief that its not your way or my way; its a better way, a higher way. Made By: Abdul Haseeb
  23. 23. Win/Lose states If I win you lose. In Leadership style, Win/Lose is a authoritarian approach. Win/Lose people are prone to use position, power, credentials, possessions, or personality to get their way. Made By: Abdul Haseeb
  24. 24. Lose/Win stands for no demands, no expectations, no vision. People who think Lose/Win are usually quick to please or appease. They seek strength from popularity or acceptance. Lose/Win people have little courage to express their own feelings and convictions and are easily intimidated by the ego strength of others. Made By: Abdul Haseeb
  25. 25. When two Win/Lose determine, stubborn, ego-invested individuals interact-the result will be Lose/Lose. Both will Lose. Both will become vindictive and want to get back or get even, blind to the fact that murder is suicide, that revenge is a two-edged sword. Lose/Lose is the philosophy of the highly dependent person without inner direction who is miserable and thinks everyone else should be, too. Made By: Abdul Haseeb
  26. 26. Made By: Abdul Haseeb People with the Win mentality dont necessarily want someone else to lose. Thats irrelevant. What matters is that they get what they want. Win mentality thinks in terms of securing his own ends-and leaving it to others to secure theirs.
  27. 27. No Deal basically means that if we cant find a solution that would benefit us both, we agree to disagree agreeably-No Deal. No expectations have been created, no performance contracts established. Made By: Abdul Haseeb
  28. 28. Habit #5Based on the work of Stephen Covey Seek first to Understand, Then to be Understood
  29. 29. You need to understand other first before you start wanting other to understand you. Listen first, talk second. Understand other will have a big effect on how you judge the person. Seeking First to Understand is only half of habit 5. Seeking to Be Understood is way more challenging since it require courage. If you can understand other, then other will surely understand you too.
