Sumo principle 4: Remember The Beachball


Animation by HeadStart Wolverhampton (

The ‘Remember The Beachball’ principle encourages us to understand others and to develop empathy for how they feel.

It helps us to build better relationships by seeing issues, challenges and conflict from another person’s perspective.

Just because we see things differently, it doesn’t mean that I’m right and you’re wrong. Sometimes we can both be right.
