TAKING A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE CAN LEAD TO STUNNING BREAKTHROUGHS

“However, being able to question and shift your frame of reference is an important key to enhancing your imagination because it reveals completely different insights. This can also be accomplished by looking at each situation from different individuals’ points of view. For example, how would a child or a senior see the situation? What about an expert or a novice, or a local inhabitant versus a visitor? A wealthy person or a poor one? A tall person or a short one? Each angle provides a different perspective and unleashes new insights and ideas.”

from “How Reframing A Problem Unlocks Innovation”

Sometimes we are able to take a new perspective on our own.  Sometimes it requires help.  Coaches have many tools for helping you change your perspective.  Perhaps sitting at a table with your “mentors” and asking them for advice will provide clarity.  If analysis paralisis tends to be your issue, take a “trip” forward in time to the completion of your project and reflect on how you got there.  If your tendency is to always see the downside, step into the shoes of someone who believes it CAN be done.

If you are stuck and looking for some help, feel free to schedule a call.  If you have a very specific problem/focus/block, one sixty minute session might be just what you need to take the next step on your path.
