Seeds to nurture ideas

There is a chemical term called "resonance structure," and I once wondered if I could use it as a hint to create a tissue.

Resonance structure refers to a more stable state in a molecule in which the positions of the atoms remain the same, but only the positions of the electrons change.

It is a bit difficult to describe, but I quote the following


When there are multiple physically and chemically assumed chemical structural formulas for a single compound, the molecule is said to be in resonance between each structure, assuming a superposition of those structures.


By resonating between several structures, a molecule becomes less energetic than it would be if it did not resonate. In other words, the molecule is stabilized.

The idea is that if we compare teams to molecules, people to atoms, and leadership to electrons, then instead of someone always taking the leadership role, leadership should move around within the team depending on the situation, thereby increasing resilience to various stresses.

The question that arises here, however, is: if leadership moves among people, who determines that leadership move?

The answer to this question, as you can see from the molecule, is not that the atoms are talking to each other or that someone is making a decision, but that the properties and combinations of atoms make it so, and we should design with that in mind.

When discussing the definition of an organization that is unique to Mogic, the seeds for nurturing ideas are brought to us from the most unlikely places.
