Why perspective matters . . .

The theory of perspectivism states that for every perspective we encounter from someone, there exists a reality.

Recently, several of our Cobalt Associates have traveled to Haiti, Southeast Asia and Italy. It has been wonderful to see their photographs, hear about their experiences and listen to the perspectives they gathered from the people on their journeys. While it is good practice for leaders to get away and rejuvenate their health (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and intellectual health), or to engage in personal growth and service activities, it is also important for leaders to practice gaining the perspectives of the multitude of people with whom we share the earth. Too many issues bind humankind today. The more leaders can do to listen, the more relevant our actions become.
