“PERSPECTIVE!” is this week’s Power Word!
PERSPECTIVE is the lens through which we experience the world.
Leaders have the ability, either innately or developed through practice, to see different PERSPECTIVEs, especially when it comes to people in their sphere of influence.
Understanding the PERSPECTIVE of others, especially when it comes to framing conversations and requests will help in exerting positive influence.
One key caveat!
In our most intimate personal and professional relationships I’ve found we become less open to the other’s PERSPECTIVE, but of course tend to expect the other to see ours more readily.
Just something to be careful of.
’til next time,
