The Value of an Outside Perspective

In The Power of Peers: How the Company You Keep Drives Leadership, Growth & Success, we talk a great deal about the importance of seeking outside perspectives – about the unbelievable value that can come from someone giving us a fresh take on what appears to be an unsolvable problem.  This video has been around since 2010, but it offers such a clear illustration of getting outside your small circle and venturing beyond it, I just had to share.  Listen to the first few minutes of this clip, as William Ury, coauthor of Getting to Yes, masterfully shares the story of 17 camels.  If you have time, I encourage you to watch this TED Talk in its entirety to learn more about the value of storytelling!  Enjoy and tell me what you think!
