Could changing the way we think about the tension between dealing with the pandemic or strengthening the economy be a significant factor in our future success? Barry Johnson, father of Polarity Thinking, believes that it can. He argues that we need to change our paradigm from a battle between two fronts to a battle on two fronts. We need a healthy public to build a strong economy as well as a strong economy to care for a healthy public, so our focus on both is essential. The tools of Polarity Thinking, including Polarity Mapping enables us to have robust conversations between specialists in both areas to enable the expertise of both to work together to build a common plan that addresses both imperatives.
