Replying to LO28456 --

Hello Alan,

The book perhaps also suggest that we should have both, balancing each
other: - authority and management for efficient an effective development
(This is the combination of Unitair - or blue - thinking and Sensory - or
red - working) - creativity and self-management for creative and committed
developments (This is the combination of Mythic - yellow - creating and
Social - or green - behaving)

All (ALL) ways of thinking and behaving allways when carried out to the
extremes are in every way destructive - National Socialism, Communism,
Imperialism, The Cultural Revolution, Capitalism, to name a few - too much
emotions, too much ratio, too much mindless work of too much creative
destruction leads to nothing.

What are the early warning signs of too much hard work and efficient
management? Successes!
What are the early warning signs of too much creativity and chaotic behavior?
