What I expect from you

Dr. Rosenthal was the first to study positive expectancy effects and he carried out the experiment in an American school. The students presented as super-intelligent were the ones that obtained the best results, even though, if truth be told, they had been selected from the worst American colleges.

Reframing is a perspective which gives the individual more possibilities of choice. Its roots can be found in NLP (neuro linguistic programming) and aims at widening a person’s point of view.

The solution comes after the problem

Research carried out by Dr. Martin Hilbert shows that the amount of information available to us, to decide whether we buy a product or not, has increased five-fold in very few years.

In other words, it is a process which accelerates what a client would have eventually done on his own.

Ray Charles’s life has been anything but easy. His teenage years are marked with drugs and events that threatened his safety. Perhaps if it had not been for his mother’s intervention, during his childhood and his adolescence, then we would never have been able to appreciate one of the most important musicians in the world.
