I have a soft spot for Japanese adverts. While Japanese television advertising can be over the top it can also be very tender. Here is an interesting example focusing on respect for individuality and imagination within children – in other words not rushing towards judgment. It is an interesting video that can be used for discussion. How often do we focus on the small picture without recognising the bigger picture? How often do we rush into judgment, soliciting experts, without stepping back, pausing, and asking ‘what is really going on here?’
Discuss these ideas within the training session. View the video. The world is full of examples of people who do unusual things – often experiencing criticism. It is years later , when we see the bigger picture , that we recognise how individuals break new ground – seeing things well ahead of the game. Think of examples of people who have broken new ground.
