THE POWER OF PERCEPTION: How What You See is What You Get
It has been said that “Perception IS Reality.” We use our perceptions as a way to navigate through our world. Our perceptions form the foundation of what we call reality. But the reality is that many of our perceptions which we take for granted are in actuality illusions. For example, there is more space than mass in a solid oak table. Yet, we perceive it as being very dense and substantial. Glass is actually a liquid and is flowing from the top of the window frame to the bottom. Yet, we certainly don’t see its movement. These scientific facts demonstrate that we live according to our perceptions in the physical world.
When it comes to our relationships with people, our perceptions play an even more significant role. Our perceptions about others and ourselves can often create illusions, which hinder our success and our ability to perform at the highest level of achievement. How we perceive our co-workers, customers, teammates, and all the people around us has a profound impact on their morale, motivation, and performance.
The objective of this seminar is to show how “what you see is really what you get” in life. Our perceptions always take center stage in our personal and professional lives and form the basis of our prosperity and productivity. This session uses an interactive combination of case studies, videos, and discussion to help participants position their perceptions in ways which lead to success.
