I admire the daylights out of this man and appreciate his impactful TED Talk – learning from others we view as different than us is more critical now than ever.

We can spend our energies disagreeing and dismissing others or we can spend our energies trying to find common ground with one another.

Over and above that, we may need to start with the premise that our fellow humans are worthy of loving and connecting with, despite what we perceive as dramatic differences in our views or vitriolic “first (or even thousandth) impressions.”

Please watch Zachary’s talk at the link below and let me know what you think. {and I’ve also added a related talk at the bottom of this post as well-that describes, scientifically, the why behind the deep divides and hostilities we find today and re-emphasizes and (hopefully) complements some of the points Zachary powerfully describes and prompts us to action around]

I am seeking to discover, find and share salt and light into the world. After growing up in financial poverty, but with a wealth of loving people lifting me up all along the way, I struggled for a good while to "do it all on my own." Until I finally found something indescribable in a mere "about me" section of a blog. Now I have the peace that discovery provides as well as the overwhelming urge to share everything I can with as many as I can. I am now trying to use those life experiences, my formal and informal education, and my over 25 years of human resources and leadership experience to have a broader conversation with the world about that something, that Light, and about Love and Leadership...with a dose of Laughter along the way. 4 Ls to Live by and to Soar by: Four for Soaring.
