Perceptions: How do they Influence You?

April 23, 2009 -- Sal Silvester

We all perceive the world according to our own reality. The experiences we have had in the past and the experiences we have today all create the perceptions that we hold about other people. Those perceptions influence our biases (and we all have biases), which in turn influence our behaviors.

Sometimes our biases are so ingrained that we don't even know they exist.

To be successful leaders and successful team members we have to become aware of our biases and how they influence our interactions with others in the workplace.

The video below is interesting and entertaining. It's a quick download and then takes a minute or two to open up in Windows Media Player. But, i think you will enjoy it. Sometimes we get so focused on our own reality, we don't see what is happening around us.You'll know what I mean after you watch it.

Let me know what you think!
