When you approach a situation on a project, your initial view of that situation is seen through the eyes of your past experiences. Whether you failed or succeeded, trusted or got burned, your initial perception of the situation will align with your experience. Had no problems? Perception is there will be no problems. Got Burned? Perception is you will get burned again. Perception is reality is a relative term and completely depends on our perspective based on past experiences. To take your leadership to the next level, take a step away from your perspective and look at the facts as they are now. Changing your perspective will affect your perception which will ultimately guide you to the right action for the current situation.
