The Danger of a Single Story
A colleague shared this link to a video of a TED talk called “The Danger of a Single Story” by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.
This is an important message not only as we think of people in peril — the Syrian refugees, those within striking distance of North Korean and US missiles, terrorists, immigrants and refugees the world over – but also as we interact with our caregivers, colleagues, and competitors. Each country and each person has a multitude of stories, not just one. Ms. Adichie reminds us that you don’t know a person unless you know his or her stories.
