Here's my take: I have a premise that I do for all advising that I've learned over the years through maybe some hard knocks. We have within ourselves the answer to our questions or the strategy that will move us forward. To advise is not always to bring solutions to the table, but to ask the questions that haven't been asked, revealing answers that bring the future into the present. So my take on all of this is first to listen. Come into a situation with a friend, family member, or acquaintance and start with listening. Listening is an amazing tool in the art of advising.
