Recently, as I watched a rerun of one of my favorite shows, “New Girl,” I laughed as one of the characters, Winston, loved puzzles but was terrible at putting them together. He struggled to put pieces in the obviously wrong places, but he always had a great time trying. Later in the show, Winston learned that the he is colorblind causing his issues with successfully completing the puzzle. But even colorblind, Winston still loved the challenge and continued in his own very creative way to put them together. Can you imagine trying to work a puzzle and not seeing certain colors? You would have to rely on other qualities and lots of trial and error. In training and communication, at times, we need to become “blind” in order to look at other solutions and be open to trial and error. Sometimes, we need to be “blind” to traditional or conventional ways. Other times, we may need to be “blind” to innovative ideas with no real substance. We need to be “blind” to personality conflicts and distractions. We need to be “blind” to the fear of risk-taking. etc Strategies believes that becoming “blind” can lead to more creative thinking a problem-solving as we solve puzzles in businesses and organizations.
