"The GROW Model is a coaching framework used in conversations, meetings and everyday leadership to unlock potential and possibilities. GROW was created by our co-founder Sir John Whitmore and colleagues in the late 1980s. It has since become the world’s most popular coaching model for problem solving, goal setting and performance improvement." See  https://www.performanceconsultants.com/grow-model for all necessary details.

So yesterday we had REACH and today we have GROW. A lot of companies like abbreviations, some drive it to extreme. You need to be a longer time in a company to understand all the common abbreviations, but some remain a mystery 😎. I like the moments in a meeting, when a new employee or intern is asking about the explanation behind an abbreviation and nobody is in the room who can explain or has a rough idea. As long as nobody is asking you can still give the impression that you are a member of the circle of trust and know the meaning behind. 31 Common Acronyms You’d Never Figure Out  https://www.rd.com/list/common-acronyms/

Every now and then I get requests from people who would like to have a story, content or link mentioned/shared in one of my BLOG posts. The latest one was about promoting safe browsing tools/tips. I did a quick Internet check about the search engine mentioned and found a very negative article about it, so nothing you really want to recommend 👎. But there are solutions available that are worth checking. Private Search Engines   https://restoreprivacy.com/private-search-engine/, ECOSIA is the one I use in the moment, before I had DuckDuckGo.
