Bowling and surgery both require one. So does landing an airplane or chipping from the rough. If you want to remove a spleen or make par it requires practice, experience and consistency. It requires a point of view, understanding how others do it and why, and then adopting the elements that suit your own unique attributes and skills for the given situation.
An approach doesn’t require doing exactly what you’re told — not only is that likely to be someone else’s approach, it’s also inefficient if you run into something other than a standard scenario where you have to think for yourself.
An approach requires hard decisions and hard conversations. It requires giving the benefit of the doubt and having a reason for what you’re doing and why.
You may not land planes full of people or be on the pro bowling circuit for a living, but if something as serious as human lives or as simple as a game benefit from an approach, why not try it in your work too?
