“In times of crisis, the wise build bridges, while the foolish build barriers.”
T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman)
It is incredible how stuck people become on winning, at all costs. Instead of viewing a challenge with the long view and thinking about win/win solutions, much energy is spent winning the moment’s battle.
Our world today is filled with so much uncertainty and volatility (VUCA is a post for another day) that aligning where appropriate instead of hunkering down to fight alone is a much more strategic and long-term approach.
Be a builder, but know what it is you are building…
