43: Gentle Interventions

The wise project manager takes a gentle approach to things.  If there is a problem with someone he steps back and yields knowing that their resistance will relax.  The wise project manager knows how much how little can achieve.  

The Tao
Lao Tsu tells us:

The softest thing in the universe 
Overcomes the hardest thing in the universe. 
That without substance can enter where there is no room. 
Hence I know the value of non-action.  

Teaching without words and work without doing 
Are understood by very few.
