In organizations, we often treat every challenge as a problem to be solved, with a right or wrong answer.

Should we give people and departments the freedom to work independently, or should we all be working move collaboratively?

Should we communicate in a clear and candid way, or should we communicate in a diplomatic and tactful way?

Should we embrace change and innovation, or should we stay the course and stick with what works?

But this “either/or” thinking is a dangerous trap! To be more effective— 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 teams to tap into the power of “both/and” thinking. By doing this, we gain a massive competitive advantage, and move from surviving to thriving.
