Polarity Management®

Polarity MapMany tough dilemmas that persist over time actually are not problems that can be solved at all. They involve a polarity - a relationship between two opposing ideas that each have some good in them. In fact, you need both sides to achieve your goals. And guaranteed, if you overdo one side, you get trouble. The good and bad news is that you can’t get rid of a polarity - ever. Based on the work of Barry Johnson, Polarity Management  is a powerful yet very accessible model of thinking, assessing, planning and acting that moves individuals and teams from resistance and conflict towards embracing the complexity of their challenges and working together towards their common purpose. When groups learn it, they are more able to work effectively with “opposition”, build stronger teams, make better decisions, and focus their energy where it will make a bigger positive difference. www.polaritymanagement.com
