Tactical Philosophy?

Tactical Philosophy captures the dichotomy and tension between...

  • leadership & management
  • justification & method
  • concept & technique
  • creativity & rules
  • diversity & uniformity
  • empowerment & authority
  • generalism & specialism
  • synthesis & analysis

Tacticians ask how...and focus on planning and details.

Philosophers ask why...and concern themselves with purpose and intent.

Our world would be a more understanding place if everyone thought more like a Tactical Philosopher.

Here's a short blog post delving a bit deeper into this theory.


Be sure to follow Lou's thoughts on Twitter at @LouHayesJr and on LinkedIn. He also posts a weekly reading & podcast list on Fridays called Weekend Building Blocks to share the five or so nuggets that he's found most valuable to help him grow his thinking.
