What is the value of different perspectives?
They illuminate blind spots.
And sometimes, seeing your blind spots create change.
Unfortunately, that is often a rare occurrence.
Consider the last time a – significant – opinion of yours was changed?
It’s probably been a while.
Because while we give frequent lip service to unique perspectives few of us can name three close friends who hold a different view on major topics, and if they did we might not even know.
Remember, unique perspectives don’t create change, they illuminate blind spots.
Listening and taking action create change.
Don’t forget the critical pieces of the puzzle to see the final impact.
