#WorkingOutLoud on Trans Disciplinary Lenses in the Landscape of Leadership


The ability to see the world differently is a mechanism of insight and innovation, but not one easily accessed: the ‘difference’ in question may involve finding additional information within an apparently exhaustively understood system. To extract something that was originally occluded by our legacy frameworks, or unavailable to us with our historic tools.

It is, in essence, the ability to construct or discover additional value that may be unavailable to others within established frames of competition for resource or understanding, allowing us to deploy kinetic effort in new directions, or to a different purpose.

Or to put it another way: to see the world differently may cause us to act differently, and hence give a competitive advantage, even within a well known and understood space.

A kaleidoscopic image may come to mind, where the view fractures and breaks apart before rapidly cycling through a range of disjointed and yet somehow connected panoramas, before we settle on something new. Not ‘coherent’ by the previous standard, but not disjointed or divorced from it either. A new perspective, angle, or framing.

Today just sharing a fragmentary thought.
