Have you ever tried to use just one foot when you’re meant to use two?
I imagined it wouldn’t be very easy, but I decided I’d better experiment before writing this post… So I tried it today.
(We leave nothing to chance in the search for the best information for you etc. etc.)
Actually, it’s even harder than I expected, nigh on impossible in fact.
What makes us think that a one-track approach to people, or organisations, or projects will work?
We need the dynamic balance of one thing and its opposite or complement e.g. task and relationship, authority and care, listening and speaking, innovation and efficiency, male and female. We need both-and. We need one to wax when the other wanes, just like the power from the other pedal.
We need the Yin as well as the Yang, and vice versa.
Has your bicycle got two pedals?
What about your business?
