The Power of Perceptions
The Power of Perceptions Have you ever wondered why two people from the same community think and act differently? Understanding perceptions is more important than ever as society is being exposed to increasingly more intentional messaging designed to shape our beliefs, biases, attitudes and feelings. Without an awareness of how this messaging programs our brains to influence our actions and behaviors, we become mere cogs in a materialistic and divisive culture. Recognizing the sources that shape our personal beliefs and guide our behaviors is the first step to building a real community. Once we understand our views and beliefs, we become more understanding, empathetic and effective in building relationships with others as we work to solve pressing problems together. This presentation is designed to bring awareness to how perceptions develop over time and influence everyday actions and attitudes.
1. Have a clearer understanding of how behaviors are influenced by culture.
2. Better understand the role we all play in shaping perceptions over time and how these perceptions influence our daily lives.
