About Powerful Perspectives
Though most of us are comparable in intelligence and capabilities, all do not achieve the same level of professional success. Research suggests that most people remain underleveraged in life to the extent of 95%. The biggest barrier that prevents anyone from reaching his/her maximum potential is the SELF: thoughts, beliefs, values, philosophy, biases, judgments, opinions.
It is my conviction that 'What you do' is a function of 'how you see'. One's world is in his mind - not external. Hence, if one desires a substantially significant world, the change should begin right there - in one's mind. Perspectives have to be evolved, wisdom to be invoked - that is the beginning of solution to practically any problem in the world.
Different situations at work, and Life in general are similar to the "Elephant and Five Blind people" story. Five visually challenged people in the story are asked to describe an Elephant. Each of them have a different take on the animal. An individual's perspective was not wrong, yet was incomplete to fathom the animal that the elephant was.
In real world, each situation is an elephant and each of us - one blind man. What Yatin does is bring to you the perspective of other four blind men, to equip you with the complete picture of an Elephant. This in turn empowers you with a larger set of more informed choices to leverage your full potential.
In the leadership race, it is not Talent but Perspective deficit, which makes a decisive difference between an average performer and an outstanding one.
Under "Powerful Perspective" the advantage is aimed at building:
- Distinctive viewpoint
Thus, building Powerful Perspectives is about working on your mind space, to help open up and enhance a person's perspective which enables the person to see many options and thereby, the world of opportunities.
