As leaders, we often treat every challenge as a problem to be solved, with a right or wrong answer.
Planning or Action?
Structure or Flexibility?
Change or Stability?
But this “either/or” thinking is a dangerous trap!
To be a better leader — both at work and at home — we need to realize that many of life's challenges are tensions to be managed.
The Power of Healthy Tension
provides a simple framework that allows leaders to tap into the power of “both/and” thinking.
By doing this, we gain a massive competitive advantage, and move from surviving to thriving.
