As the world goes global, the future will belong to those who have the ability to see things from multiple perspectives. To better understand, consider the picture to the right. Do you see a tiger in a jungle or a jungle with a tiger in it?
You might say there is no difference between the two statements but there is. One perspective focuses on the individual tiger first and the larger environment of the jungle is secondary. The opposite viewpoint sees the larger context of the jungle as the focal point and the individual tiger is secondary.
There is no “correct” way to view the picture but individuals and organizations who can better train themselves to view the world from different perspectives will be surprised at how many more “opportunities” suddenly appear.
