Must values ​​contradict each other?

If consequence (in the sense of effect) becomes an important value in Company then the positive value of flexibility is put on the siding. Consequence and flexibility, however, form a polar value pair. Consequence without flexibility is not "valuable" and vice versa. More consistency may be required for a certain period of time, but in the long term these values ​​can only be understood as a pair of poles.

And now we want to explain why it is important that values ​​contradict each other and how to deal with this contradiction.

Unilateral values ​​= negative results


A good approach would be a formulation: "We are as consistent as necessary and as flexible as possible." If we only use one of the two values ​​in the company, the consequence is usually negative.

From the required consequence becomes dogmatism. If flexibility is declared a value, the game usually ends in randomness. We must not lose the polarity of the values ​​in the company. Values ​​must span tension fields and bring people between the poles. Only then do we hear the rippling of the dipping into the flow of change.

Values ​​that can stand alone


Of course, there are meaningful values ​​for companies that can stand alone on their own. For example, "energy-conscious" or "environmentally conscious" is a more than meaningful orientation for a company.

The opposite pole in these cases does not work positively, but destructively. Such values ​​serve the future-oriented orientation of a company. This applies in a similar way to the social and social orientation demanded by the CSR concept (CSR = Corporate Social Responsibility).

Values ​​must be clearly communicated


For all these values, it is necessary to communicate clearly where the limits lie and which exceptions are possible in crises. With a dogmatic attitude these values ​​can lead to negative consequences in companies.

It should also be noted that values ​​which describe the entrepreneurial activity in a meaningful manner are not mentioned. Which company would not like to see a certain performance orientation or as a reliable partner? From our point of view, such values ​​can be imported without a counterpole. How should they ever hurt?

Recognize the pattern


In all processes of change, the energy of attention follows. And we can associate with the six principles "patterns of attention" and "patterns of energy" and connect them with each other in a meaningful way.

The energy follows attention. What we are concentrating on is growing. This shamanic principle was incorporated into modern psychology and became a guiding principle of systemic consultation.

Overview of the patterns


Behind every principle there is hidden a domain of knowledge of modern science, which we - with some blurring - also want to assign. It's about creating a meaningful connection that will help you recognize patterns.

The principle of beginning and ending for the management work


What does that mean in detail? The principle of beginning and end needs courage as the attitude of the leader.

We begin the change by taking a first, courageous step into an unknown land. It is a conquest and thus also a martial principle of the fight.
