What is Backtrack Frame?
The backtrack frame is useful for discovering the pattern which we are to follow and make sure everyone is on the same page.
The ‘Backtrack Frame’ comes in handy in meetings, discussions and negotiations. To use it, you would recapitulate what has been said using the other person’s key words and tonalities. Doing this checks agreement and understanding of what has been said, helps to build rapport, and is useful when new people join the meeting. It is also very useful to backtrack to the last point of agreement when a meeting gets stuck, so you get a chance to start over at the point before the disagreement happened.
Each person filters information differently and may come to significantly different conclusions. Backtracking is a way to make sure everyone has the same understanding of what is being discussed or decided.
