Most of us live and work in silos in as much as we focus on our bit of what we do and try and do it well. This can lead to some monumental oversights and we miss a lot.
For example, if you work in a public service, have you ever walked into your place of work with the mindset, the eyes and ears of a service user? If you teach, do you regularly sit where the students sit so you see things from their perspective? You work in a store – what does a s customer see as they approach you for assistance?
Its a good idea to regularly climb out of the silo we habitually inhabit and see things from a different place.
