half full

Everyone knows the optimist sees the glass half full, and the pessimist sees it as half empty, but few see the other options.

The technologist sees the shape as sub-optimal

The engineer sees the variation of material in the glass as an affront to his efficiency

The designer sees the glass as twice the size it needs to be

The production manager wants more glasses

The marketer thinks the glass just needs to be bigger, with a better name

The innovator is keen to find another way to introduce liquid into the glass

The accountant just bitches about the costs.

The entrepreneur sees a great opportunity in glasses

The salesman points out that people buy less glasses when it rains, which is why his sales are down

Leaders find ways to bridge the gaps between these perspectives, and have everyone working to a common goal.
