When We do the Opposite of What We Really Need to Do

Wherever we see troubles we can usually find a hidden assumption about scarcity lurking about. Out of a fear of lack or a fear for survival, we do the opposite of what we really need to do: we defend our turf or attack others. This may lead to short-lived gains but will leave us still in fear. Instead, if we collaborate, we generate better ideas that disprove the lack and create sustained security, profit, and joy.

We leaders can apply this insight in business, at home, and around the world. As soon a we see winning as “I win and you win,” or “We win and they win,” everything changes.

In your corner,
