On the other hand, where there are no fancy theories or prejudices to split the team into fractions, there will be harmony. Where the work of the team is grounded in an obvious and natural righteousness, there will be no need for rules and regulations.
The way cannot be defined, it just is. It is the single principle responsible for every event or thing. The wise project manager has regard for this principle and as a consequence the team will trust him.
The wise project manager returns to an awareness of what is happening and the single principle that lies behind it. Focusing on this single principle is the most potent aspect of leadership. From this the wise project manager will learn how things happen
Lao Tzu tells us:
The Tao is eternally nameless.
Its simplicity, although imperceptible, cannot be grasped.
If kings could grasp it,
The ten thousand things would follow them.
Heaven and earth cause sweet dew to fall,
Not just on the worthy but on all alike.
Men will not need to force it,
All things would take their course.
Once the whole is divided, the parts need names.
There are already enough names,
One must know when to stop.
Knowing when to stop, thus avoiding danger.
The existence of Tao in the world,
Is like a river flowing home to the sea.
