Harnessing the Power of Tension | Book Review

Sam Chand argues that “tension is both inevitable and, at least in many cases, desirable in life and leadership.” If his argument seems counterintuitive to you, Harnessing the Power of Tension is a must read. Rather than avoiding tension, Chand counsels leaders to lean into it in order to experience the synergy that results from balancing competing interests and concerns. Leaning into tension doesn’t mean allowing destructive conflict, however. Properly managed, tension leads to greater creativity, teamwork, and productivity, whether at home, business, or church.
