The Pressure Principle

The Pressure Principle simply says that pressure from the outside brings out what is inside. When you squeeze an orange, you expect orange juice to result, not the juice of a tomato or pineapple, right?

Similarly, pressure reveals in business leaders what’s inside, whether it is grace or anger, resourcefulness or a tendency to shirk responsibility and blame others or outside events.

 

 

 

What does the pressure principle remind you of from your work experience?
