The Perception Prison and How to Break Out

The Perception Prison and How to Break Out
Recording: The Perception Prison and How to Break Out, Mar 12, 2019


In this session, we will challenge two powerful paradigms; perception and personality. Most of us live with the unconscious reality that our perception creates our personal realities, and with this subconscious belief comes conscious work to be done. Even more, we tend to think that our personalities change, when in fact, they don't. What's changing is everything around us. That's why who you are really depends on who you're with—the people around you give context to the way you're experienced. This is one of the reasons why it’s so hard to replicate success from one team to the next or from leading one company to another: it’s not about you. It’s about you in the context of them.
