“Through our daily performance we are creating an iconic view of who we are.” #bgdtcoaching.
Thinking about an iconic view, we could bring to mind a variety of sights each one symbolic of a city or location: the pyramids of Giza, the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Royal Albert Hall in London or the Statue of Liberty in New York, for example.
From another perspective, an iconic view might be considered as a specific way of thinking of a particular person or even company. Richard Branson, Seth Godin and Steve Jobs are each known for having an iconic view of life and business.
Yet daily through our performance we are creating an iconic view of who we are. Words may at times fail us, but our body language and our actions speak loudly for us. Our thinking and intentions are made visible by what we do and together form for others a unique picture, or an iconic view, of us.
Rather than opening the idea out to iconic cultural views and so forth, let me stop now. Thanks for your presence here today. If you would like to share your input on the subject of an iconic view, please leave a comment below.
