Different Perspectives in Seeing Things


Today during the Career Coach Program, I told our participants that we can help our clients or others to see more by coaching them to look at the other perspectives.

But what is perspective?

Perspectives are the different sides of what you are looking at. To help others to see the other side, we must firstly be aware of what is their current perspective. We can then encourage them to see the other perspective by naming it.

Here are 6 very common perspectives in addition to the 18 others that I had mentioned in today's class:

1. Limited/Unlimited

2. Conservative/Progressive

3. Problems/Lessons to be Learned

4. Right or Wrong/Workable or Unworkable

5. Old/Newer

6. Surface Level/Deeper Level
