It's Typically Not One or the Other

We often err when we choose one over the other because truly it's typically the synthesis of ideas, process, items, and people that make the best choice. Rarely is it one over the other.

For example, the best family vacations meld everyone's interests together into an inviting menu of activities and events. A good meal has much variety, and a welcoming home often has a number of nooks and crannies to appeal to the people in the home and the activities that take place there.

People in positive organizations coach one another forward to make sure that everyone is doing their best work. It's not a gotcha mentality waiting for someone to fail or make a mistake, but instead a place where the team looks and listens to find the best ways to collaborate using one another's strengths, talents, passions, and interests to move the whole team forward.

No one in an organization is without strengths or without challenges. Time is wasted if we perseverate on individuals' challenges without making the time to develop good systems, strategies, and process that maximize the strengths while positively developing the areas of challenge.
