Where Do You Sit? Above The Line Or Below The Line

Where Do You Sit Above The Line Or Below The Line EOA Social

This post is about one of the most impactful behavioural models we've come across in the last 18 years. It’s called ‘above the line and below the line’ where the line represents choice. We can choose to operate either above the line or below it. If it sounds simple, that’s because it is. But in its simplicity, lies its strength.

One of the reasons this tool is so impactful is that it brings values to life in a tangible way. For the teams we’ve worked with, it’s absolutely galvanised the language they operate in and really brought their values to life. We're going to explore the original model here but also how you can adapt it and bring it to life for your own needs.

In this episode: 

  • How it works and who it’s for
  • Above the line thinking
  • Below the line thinking
  • Above the line feeling
  • Below the line feeling

Imagine a blank piece of paper with a horizontal line drawn through the centre of it. The line signifies a choice between how you thoughtfully respond to a situation or automatically react.
