Season 4 Episode 5

P-Soupers, thanks for tuning in. This week it’s a cup-a-soup with me. I want to talk to you about perspective taking and how that relates to the world between our ears - if you could just try on these perspectacles please and read the bottom line of the chart....

I’m going to be having a go at exercising my creativity - experimenting with ways to illustrate my point, which is, that we all live inside our heads - and often - we can assume other people are in their with us - think like us and really ‘get us’.

In my work and life I constantly marvel that workplaces can function, relationships can happen and agreements can be made, because I reckon we can spend a lot of time just assuming that people are thinking just like us. And what’s going on in someone else’s head - can shape how they look at and experience the world and how they show up. And the same applies to us. I combine my thinking with a great exercise from a recent guest - Diana Hill.
