#85 ENCORE Episode: How to Make A Positive Difference in the World and Stop Making False Either/Or Choices featuring Dr. Barry Johnson
We are thrilled to provide this Encore episode of our interview with our dear friend and mentor Dr. Barry Johnson. Barry is the author of AND: Making a Difference by Leveraging Polarity, Paradox, or Dilemma. Volume One: Foundations.
AND is for people interested in making a positive difference in the world or in any part of their life as a citizen, a family member, or an individual within an organization.
Volume One of AND covers the application of fundamental polarities from different system perspectives and how different polarities show up in the brain. Barry suggests learning about polarities is easiest when you work from the smallest system up. So, beginning with polarities that have meaning for you as an individual enables you to see quickly how the same polarity is applicable across other levels of the system.
During our interview with Barry, we explore how Both/And thinking overcomes resistance to change and polarization and is an essential step in making a difference. We also discuss how misdiagnosing polarities as problems and how leaders pay a price twice when this occurs.
You probably already realize, if you want to make a difference in the world understanding polarities is essential and this book is a must read! Go ahead and listen to this thought- provoking interview now!
