What Else is Going On?

When including a teammate’s perspective, a team must consider how informed the perspective is. In today’s digital world everything seems instant and easily accessible. Perspectives can include opinions that are derived from snap judgements, careful investigation, or somewhere in between.

If everyone on the team shares a similar perspective based on a snap judgement and one team member stands out with game changing information, it is wise to shift perspectives. It’s always better to begin including other perspectives by asking the simple question, “What else is going on from what we know and see?” Opinions should always seek to conform to the truth that is available at the moment. Truth can be inconvenient but once accepted, it’s all we have to stand on as a team.
