Widen Your Perspective: How to Gain Big Picture Understanding

Widen Your Perspective: How to Gain Big Picture Understanding

As an assistant, you have a lot on your plate. It can be easy to get so focused on your own job and growing to-do list that you totally miss important things happening all around you. This limited perspective can reduce your effectiveness and ultimately, shrink your power as an assistant. However, you can choose to widen your perspective by seeking to understand the Big Picture and in doing so, you will have more confidence, courage and competence to step into your role in a bigger way.

In this session, you will learn:

  • What the Big Picture consists of, why it matters, and the consequences of failing to expand your understanding of it
  • Why “Systems Thinking” is the basis for this level of understanding and how to train yourself to think in this way
  • The 7 Points of Perspective assistants must pay attention to (and how to do it)
  • Success strategies to leverage your Big Picture Understanding effectively
