Laurel vs. Yanny was everywhere over the last week. I heard Laurel so clearly, it was hard to imagine hearing Yanny. Surely someone must have adjusted the pitch so people could hear both. So, I went out to the internet to find it. I found a Youtube video that adjusted the sound in a way that was supposed to let you hear both. And I still heard Laurel.
As a leader, it is important to hear different perspectives from your team, your people, and your customers. Sometimes it takes work to hear those perspectives. And sometimes, you won’t hear the perspective directly no matter how hard you try. But, you need some way to know that it exists and it is a valid perspective.
How are you seeking out the perspectives you need to hear?
