Tension


In business, I often speak of this notion I call 'constructive tension'. It is a positive situation where individuals or groups are in opposition to each other, such as speed versus quality. I try to set this up where the opposition is seen a positive sort of tension that creates a balance between two opposing needs. I liken the orange wall and blue sky in this image, which are on opposite sides of the color wheel, and like this notion of constructive tension, they are in opposition yet there is balance and a positive outcome.
