The Power of Perception: from the Change Agent

"If there was evidence that your communications were limiting your impact, undermining the case for equity, and possibly smearing those you seek to help, would you do something about it?"

From The "Racism Issue" of Change Agent 

Trabian Shorters believes too many of us are focusing on people's deficits — not their assets and strengths in our work.
