14 minutes from Edgar Schein will help you

Charles van der Haegen, who works at the ZERI Foundation in Belgium, posted the following note on Google+:

I had an annoying experience today, got trapped again in trying to help someone avoid a mistake. You should never help someone if he doesn't indicate a willingness and ability to accept help, says Edgar Schein. What to do when you see a person you respect , or love, about to make a big mistake that can hurt them, and society?

To find answers to this apparently simple question I will need to read again this thoughtful book:
Helping: How to Offer, Give and Receive Help.

Right! Watch this video, in which Ed sets forth his thoughts.  Simple, but not easy!  I am so honored that he offered to write the foreword to my book, Goal Play!
