How do we begin to understand another point of view so that we can create and embrace change?
Creating change is difficult. It requires us to think differently and be open to new possibilities and different views of reality. But this is not easy because we have our own beliefs that to us are 100% true and correct. Yet others have their own set of beliefs that are 100% true and correct to them. So how can we possibly create any sort of change, be it settling an argument with your spouse, convincing your team on a new direction with your company, or even selling a solution to a client?
In this episode, my guest Dave Gray and I unpack some of these questions and ideas in an hour long discussion on some interesting ways to use something called Liminal Thinking.

His area of focus is the human side of change and innovation, specifically: How can you get people to adopt new ideas? How can you win their hearts and minds? How can you get people, including yourself, to change deeply embedded habits and behaviors? How can you transform a business strategy from a good idea to a living fact in the real world?
