In this episode Russell talks to Ken about his recent work at a strategic board retreat when Ken utilized one of Chris McGoff’s tools from his book ‘The Primes’ relating to Perimeters. When individuals convene, they erect boundaries. These boundaries delineate topics deemed acceptable for discussion, effectively constraining the discourse within a predefined realm. Such conversations invariably yield predictable results.

However, when a collective broadens its scope to encompass the ‘uncommon’ or ‘extraordinary,’ it fosters an environment where novel perspectives can emerge—perspectives typically stifled within the confines of conventional discourse. This shift towards expansive dialogue fosters innovative, transformative thinking, enhancing the group’s capacity to tackle challenges effectively.
