Getting Stuck Can Help You Grow – Gianpiero Petriglieri – Harvard Business Review
I was browsing on the blogsite of the Harvard Business review and found this article – very interesting. We often get stuck between an either – or situation. Should I do this, or should I do that? And we focus so much on finding a quick answer, whereas the solution might be sitting for a while with the question. Read Gianpiero Petriglieri’s article below:

About Philippa Namutebi Kabali-Kagwa
I am a facilitator, coach and storyteller/storyfacilitator, and use story, song, art and dialogue to facilitate change and development in individuals and organisations.
Over the years I have become aware of how I have used stories to make sense of my life - and of the ways in which we all use story, consciously and unconsciously. Stories - myths, folktales and personal stories - are used to teach, to bind, to questions, to hold ambiguities, to explore, to hold up a different picture, to bring together and also to hold back, to suppress, divide and destroy. With this understanding I have built story into my work.
I use it to make conscious the stories people and organisations tell themselves that either support or hinder their growth. I use them as an opening, an invitation to begin to speak about the difficult things - to name 'the elephant' in the room. I use them as an invitation to people to dream of possibilities - and I also teach people to tell and to listen to stories because without a listener there is no story.
I was born in Uganda and lived there until I was in my early teens. Since then have lived in various parts of East and Southern Africa - and have been involved in development work in Namibia, South Africa, Uganda and the UK. I have also coached clients in South Africa, Namibia, the UK, Belgium, Israel and USA.
