Break free of the pack? Embrace the illogical? In life, business, research and education, it’s often more “go with the flow” than defy what you know.
But will going with the flow overcome the unprecedented challenges we face today? Not likely, says author H. Evan Woodhead in The Power of Paradox: Using Contradiction, Conflict & Chaos to Achieve the Impossible.
Using paradox, a counter-intuitive idea that unleashes the potential for innovation, Woodhead sets a new stake in the ground for those working in conformist mentality groups. This book is a veritable toolbox for blending the effortless creativity of childhood with the wisdom earned through experience.
The Power of Paradox details 12 specific techniques for breaking free from the stagnation of conventional wisdom. The techniques include:
The Contrarian Methods: use conflict, chaos and rebelliousness as creative and positive forces.
Altered Perspectives: change the notion of the problem to radically alter the solutions considered.
The Passive Techniques: work by NOT doing things, instead of by taking positive action.
Group Methods: borrow some of the principles from other methods, add their own unique elements, and apply leverage.
The Power of Paradox is the first stop for executives and managers, project managers, researchers, educators, or anyone else who wants to vault the barriers to creative problem solving, and obliterate the negative and limiting boundaries of logical thinking.
