Interested in leveraging polarities to achieve your preferred future faster and more sustainably?
In today’s world of increasing complexity and polarization, high performing leaders, teams and organizations must be able to solve problems AND leverage Polarities (interdependent values, competencies and strategic objectives ). Polarity Thinking™, Polarity Maps®, and the Polarity Assessment™ are the most robust suite of resources & tools available to help you achieve your preferred future faster and more sustainably.
The Thriving USA Initiative is an effort to encourage you, our federally elected representatives, to include And-thinking in support of your legislative process. This initiative and the Polarity Thinking on which it is based can help you reduce polarization and resistance to change, which increase the speed, impact, and sustainability of your legislative efforts on behalf of all of us.
The resources below offer three depths of insight into Polarity Thinking and the power of And, from awareness and political context (videos) to foundational understanding and applications (PDFs and the books).
