Polarity Thinking

Centralized or decentralized decision making, hierarchies or teams, tight or loose control, mission or margin.  When the “either-or” answer isn’t clear, it’s because your choices are really interdependent pairs and choosing one just creates the need for the other.   Companies often try to solve a dilemma by embracing the other pair, which, in turn creates another problem.  Asking whether the issue is a problem to solve or a polarity to manage can make a difference.  Think of it like trying to decide whether you should breathe in or breathe out.  What you really want is a way to keep the best of both.  Polarity Thinking helps you do that.
