What are some of the lenses you have in your sport? Do you sometimes judge other players through your lens?
Why might it be helpful to have people with different perspectives on a team?
What are some ways the people on your team might be different from each other? How can understanding the lenses or backgrounds of others make us better teammates?
Ways to Practice:
Think about someone you don't like or don't get along with. Can you think of some reasons why they might be the way they are?
Try to catch yourself the next time you disagree with someone and consider why they might think that way? What's the lens they're looking through?
