Avatar Pt. 2: How and When to Reset Our Maps

When we enter a new ecosystem, like Pandora, with new rules, players, functions, etc. It can be a rude awakening that our maps of reality are utterly insufficient to navigate this new terrain. Un-writing maps of reality can be a painful and energy-intensive process, just ask Jake or Trudy. Both come to Pandora with a hunan-centric view of the universe and struggle to accept what they see and what the Na'vi are trying to tell them about the world around them, because their maps are already too fixed, their cups are already full. Over the course of our leadership journeys we must get from a mindset of "look what I can teach you" to "I see you". How might we learn from Jake, Trudy, and the Na'vi how to re-align our mental maps to reality so that we can love other well?
