The way you see the world—your Frame—influences how you perceive information and act in any given situation. But what if your Frame is wrong? Six photographers were told to photograph the same man—and each was told a different story about the man's background. This is an example of Framing, one of the Cognitive Biases that get in the way of innovation, in action. Because each photographer was given a way to perceive their subject, what they see, and thus what they create, changes.

Watch the video to see how the different stories seem to shape each photographer's portrait. Read more about the process from Educate Inspire Change here. And for more on overcoming Framing and other Cognitive Biases, check out our book, Outsmart Your Instincts: How the Behavioral Innovation™Approach Drives Your Company Forward.
