Have you ever noticed how she does ….?
When we live wth or work with someone for a long time, we don’t notice things. It’s just how the person is. And then someone points it out, raises a question and we ‘see’ things in a new light. Not because it wasn’t there all along, but because we had normalised a behaviour.
Diverse teams help with seeing the behaviours we’ve normalised. And then we can decide if we like what we have normalised or if we want to change it.
The first step is seeing it. And for that we need a new perspective.
