Should you focus on change to stay relevant OR on stability for continuity?
Should you centralize for efficiency OR decentralize for speed?
Should you focus on work for achievement OR home/leisure for connection and fun?
THE ANSWER IS YES.
Because you are dealing with polarities—interdependent values.
The research is clear—individuals, leaders and organizations that understand and know how to leverage polarities outperform those that don’t. In fact, you cannot attain great goals for great companies unless you know how to lead stability AND change, people AND bottom line, individuals AND teams… The key is tapping the genius of ‘AND’.
First, you learn to distinguish problems from polarities because when you fail to do so, issues are never-ending and enormously frustrating. When you can distinguish the two, your approach changes, unnecessary conflict decreases and innovative ways to approach complex issues emerge and stick.
Second, you learn practical tools to develop action steps to solve unsolvable problems and develop sustainable change. This focus and process can be used for individuals, teams, and organizations.
Polarity Thinking is an approach.
It can be applied to individual, team, organizational development and is critical for constructive conflict.
