We have said that the opposition and collaboration between the forces is not on a conscious level and so far we have pictured two sets of “blind” forces at work. They are forces operating in the dark and are really forces in potential. A third force is necessary to make this potential a reality. This third force is to be found in the role of the president. The role of the president allows the forces to meet in a conscious way. The work of the president is to balance the forces at work in a company, and he does this by reconciling the conflict inherent in the opposing tendencies of the field through organization and what is known as “long range planning.” The first counterbalances the explosive tendency; the second, the implosive tendency.
Included in the requirement to reconcile the polarity of the holon is the requirement to balance the claims of the three forces–shareholder, market, and employee–so that the commitment of each is retained. These are not two requirements–one being to reconcile the polarity and the other to balance the forces–but two different ways of viewing the same phenomenon.
