Here is another matrix we found in Integriertes Personal-Management (Luchterhand 2008) by Martin Hilb. It is about the loyality of employees. It shows what companies should be careful about if they don’t want to end up with a hire-and-fire reputation.
Let’s take a look at love. It’s the same principle, with a twist.
The axis „story told“ illustrates your partner’s perspective. But it also shows the position and values of your social (and religious) environment. If you prefer to read it from a society’s point of view you have to replace the sentences:
- „I want to stay“ = „I have to stay“
- „Well it’s complicated!“ = „I give a damn’ what people say!“
The axis „story lived“ shows what you think what your partner feels about being with you.
