Managing Tensions

Jun 7, 2017 8:30am ‐ Jun 7, 2017 10:10am

Identification: L6

All leaders face challenges, some of which are problems, but many of which are actually tensions. Tensions do not play by the same rules as problems: If you try to solve a tension, you create more problems. You don't solve tensions, you manage them. Simply being aware of this dynamic can improve your leadership, and becoming skilled at managing tensions can help you achieve breakthrough results.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand that not every challenge a leader faces is a problem. Some problems are actually tensions.
  • You make progress as a leader not by eliminating tensions but by managing tensions.
  • Managing tensions is as helpful in situations outside of work as inside work.
  • Managing tensions is as helpful in situations outside of work as inside work.
