In this episode, we discuss the pre-arrival lens that responders use to help form situational awareness.
Length: 24 minutes
We see with our brains, not with our eyes. The eyes are simply a tool to gather photons of light. The processing of images happens in the visual cortex (in the back of your brain). There is also an interesting thing that happens as we listen to information. We also draw pictures in our brain. This is what I call the pre-arrival lens and it can set a responder up for success or it can cause some significant challenges.
