I certainly am no authority to explain ‘The Tao’. As you can see for yourself the explanation of Tao by the great Chinese Master Chuang Tzu. The profound wisdom in this quote contains a wonderful lesson. Taoism is an ancient Chinese philosophy and religion. Tao means ‘the path’ or ‘the way’. In essence it is a life-seeking harmony with nature.
So you can imagine in business management we try to teach ‘Knowledge Management’ and set up systems in the organization to manage people and knowledge. The wisdom of Tao conveys a message for our knowledge managers that true knowledge does not lie in realms of the tangible.
According to Tao conscious effort to manage and control people is futile and unproductive. The question therefore is how do we approach knowledge management? I’d love to hear your views.
Dear friends – Here’s Wishing you a Very Happy New Year 2012! 🙂
