About Polarity Wisdom™

Polarities are tensions and conflicts we navigate every day, whether we call them polarities or not! In this workshop, you will learn the language of polarities, learn to distinguish between problems and polarities, and also see how they invisibly operate within individuals, teams, and organisations.

To help leaders be more effective in addressing existing and emergent challenges, we need to help them see the landscape differently. Polarity Wisdom™ enables leaders to deeply understand what is at the heart of a tension and how to manage it in more generative ways. Leaders can thus gain clearer insight into the challenging dilemmas showing up within themselves and in their workplaces, homes, and global affairs.

In this workshop, you will:

  • Understand what polarities are and how they work
  • Understand why they are significant to coaching and leadership
  • Get a taste of how to coach using Polarity Wisdom™
  • Enhance your understanding of the LCP and improve your coaching using this powerful lens.
