Not Just Child’s Play: Learning Chemistry From Kindergarteners

Kim Christfort, leader of Deloitte’s Leadership Center for Clients and the US Greenhouses, has written an article that explores how Business Chemistry types can pair with one another in ways that make difference an advantage rather than a disadvantage.

She writes, “When I work with executives in our Leadership Center for Clients, I hear them talk about opposites, largely in reference to other executives. Idealistic vs. skeptical. Data-driven vs. intuitive. And my favorite: reasonable vs. unreasonable. That last one in particular captures my attention because it isn’t just an observation; it’s an interpretation. And that’s where things can get interesting.”
