Having spent a good part of the past weekend on a steep hillside, trying to get my amateur watering system to flow up to outlying trees, I was reminded of it being an analogy for conative stress.
Trying to get water to flow up hill is like dealing with:
1. Barriers to Innovation:
Convincing a determined Fact Finder boss that something that has never been done before could work well.
Getting a mega Follow Thru to adjust the schedule.
3. Misplaced Dependency:
Waiting for an empowered person, who is short on Implementor, to repair equipment.
4. Overcoming conative Conflict:
Having to get two totally opposite conative people to work together cooperatively.
5. False expectations:
Getting your short-lined Follow Thru friends to RSVP – or even find the invitation.
6. Endless Inertia:
Watching a team of conative clones trying to get something done.
7. Stunting Growth:
Helping an entrepreneurial Quick Start stick with the tried and true.
8. Making a Temporary Fix:
Making it easier for a conative Facilitator to choose a side – any side.
