Is your single-dimensional perspective leading you to incorrect understanding or assumptions? Unchecked incorrect or incomplete assumptions and perspectives lead to disaster… conversions become crucial… could lead to ‘world war III’ … so be on the lookout for signs of these before conversations become crucial… and make the necessary adjustments… like looking at and understanding things from multiple perspectives… uncovering hidden or incorrect assumptions. Do these in a safe environment… not in hostile environment… otherwise, people will just dig in deeper with their own myopic perspectives and understanding. Trust and an environment of mutual influence are key to having a safe environment. Have that environment first… and then have that fruitful conversation.
