Views and Vantage Points


vantage points allow us to have a holistic view.

in dealing with anything we must always consider the possible vantage points.


it is only when we step out of the painting, to stop being a part of it, sometimes for a moment, do we appreciate all its elements.

once we appreciate the view from the vantage point we must also consider moving about at the vantage point, in search of other possible angles.


seeing from different perspectives is effort and discipline. it has to be learned. a learning and empathy exercise we have to be conscious and present in.

all this is important in dealing with challenges and frustration. it is important in looking at innovation, planning new initiatives.

in a team context it will be helpful to define what vantage points look like for you.

it is even more important to define vantage point in each context.

do you all have a clear understanding of what objectivity looks like.

my question, now: what can you do to be conscious of the need to address your view or that of the team as individuals or collectively?
