Learn to tell the difference between a problem to solve and a polarity to manage

Organizations today are facing expectations that are seemingly at odds or paradoxical—to be more centralized or decentralized?…financially driven or mission driven?…for the benefit of stock holders or benefiting communities?…promoting directive leadership or collaborative leaders? Competing options like these–also called polarities–cause tensions that can either be destructive or highly energizing for both individuals and organizations. The HR function can play a key role in learning to tell the difference between a problem to solve and a polarity to leverage.

In my upcoming presentation for HR Executives, attendees will learn how to see, map, assess, learn and leverage polarities for effectively managing complexity through practical, engaging activities. The research is clear–those leaders and organizations that leverage polarities well outperform those that don’t. Don’t miss out…come discover this transformative phenomenon!

Leave with:

  • Understanding what a polarity is and why it is important to organizational health
  • Gaining new methods for managing complexity, conflict and change
  • Experiencing some polarity tools to take away for future exploration
