Like day and night, personal life and work life, exercising and resting, local and global, change and stability, mission and revenue, etc, polarities are interdependent values that support each other.

Polarities are present in life and they have existed since ancient times. Yin and Yang , in ancient Chinese philosophy, is a concept of dualism, two halves that together complete a wholeness.

Some of these polarities, paradoxes or dilemmas, are perhaps apparent and some others are not that visible for us. In any case, chances are you might be missing out on the power of managing polarities as such and not confusing and addressing them as problems to be solved. For example trying to nail the “solution” to focusing on serving your organization’s mission or focusing on serving your team members?

Polarities are also present in our ways of being and leading ourselves and others like being challenging and being supportive, being optimistic and being realistic.

The power of managing polarities as interdependent pairs and not problems to be solved will contribute to a more fulfilling personal and professional life. So how to first identify them and then manage them for maximum benefits?

This program will introduce you to an approach and a tool to identify, manage and harness the power of the polarities that might be pressing you at the moment, especially in the context of the unprecedented times we are currently living in.
