Perspective – Raghava KK: Shake up your story

By Joe Haefner

Here is a nice little video on perspective from Raghava KK via ted.com.

As coaches, parents, and players, we all get lost in our own perspective because that’s human nature. This video is a great reminder to respect and try to understand other perspectives. And hopefully this is something that we can incorporate into the life lessons that we teach to our teams.

Dale Carnegie says in his book, How to Win Friends and Influence People,

“If, as a result of reading this book, you get only one thing – an increased tendency to think always in terms of the other person’s point of view, and see things from that person’s angle as well as your own – if you get only that one thing from this book, it may easily prove to be one of the stepping-stones of your career and personal life.”

What do you think? What are some ways that you teach perspective to your teams?
