Becky and Diana discuss the value of be able to see things from someone else’s perspective. 

  • Being able to see things from someone else’s point of view is a great asset for work, life, and relationships.
  • Conversation breaks down when you can’t or won’t see things from the other person’s perspective.
  • If neither party can see things from the other’s point of view you have a stand-off and nothing gets done.
  • Asking questions helps you gain insight from another’s perspective.
  • When you assume intent, you’re making a guess that could actually be fiction.
  • Self-assess your conversation to ensure what you are saying is being received in the way you want.
  • You miss so much by closing yourself off to others’ viewpoints.
  • There are people who don’t want to take your scenic route.
  • Walking in other people’s shoes, to see what and how they see, can be uncomfortable.
  • Respect is created when you acknowledge someone else’s perspective, even if you don’t agree with it.
