What is a belief?

A belief is a (subconscious) conviction you have that influences your behaviour and responses.

What is a limiting belief?

So, how do you reframe a limiting belief?

Reframing: an example

Incident

A Defect is found just before a major release.

Reaction

We need to release, how come you found a defect this late?

Limiting Belief

Releasing on schedule is important, so we should have a process that finds defects well before the release date.

Positive Intention

I want to deliver on our promise to our customers.

Reframe

Product Development is complex; finding defects late is hard to avoid. If we do find them, we should try to learn from that situation.

Adjusted Reaction

Great job for finding this before we release. How do we solve this now and what can we do to prevent these kind of late defects in the future?

Don’t do this alone
