Why We Struggle to Work Together… What to Do About It


Organization life is often experienced as a high stakes drama with different departments, divisions, teams, and leaders tugging at one another for resources, time, and money. Often the fight is presumed to be about personality differences, power struggles, and ineffective leadership. So we invest thousands of dollars, create new training programs, implement new accountability systems, change personnel, or modify the organization’s structure only to have the drama re-appear.

In our recent and nascent research with leaders we find that they too struggle with these issues which seem to defy solution. They feel confident to handle problems to be solved; confident that they can address potential uncertainties. But they do not know how to define and address those issues when they feel between a rock and a hard place…when “either/or” solutions simply don’t work.

This presentation offers leaders, managers and Human Resources professionals powerful insights into paradoxes... why they are so pervasive, why they occur, and what to do about them.
