When did you last stand in their shoes?

There's a hand full of techniques that I come back to time and time again, and this is one of those.

I remember a colleague, who was very cynical about the process when I first introduced it to workshops, later on going on to say "Alison's going to share a brilliant tool with you for getting a different perspective on the current situation".

It's certainly one of those tools that you need to experience in order to fully understand how profound it can be.

Here's Cara Murphy and I during lockdown demonstrating the technique ahead of the finding joy in the unexpected webinar where I used this technique as part of the Uncovering solutions using unconventional tools section.

It's a technique I've used for standing in the shoes of stakeholders, suppliers, managers, team members, friends, not friends any more, partners, children, school teacher and so on.

I've shared the instructions for doing this yourself in a LinkedIn article.

Do get in touch if you'd like to discuss me teaching this, and other tools for helping shift perspective, with your team.
