There is often a lot of pressure at key times in a project. The wise project manager needs to calm the team, reassure them and bring them back to the way.
Lao Tsu tells us:
When the great Tao is forgotten,
Kindness and morality arise.
When wisdom and intelligence are born,
The great pretence begins.
When there is no peace within the family,
Filial piety and devotion arise.
When the country is confused and in chaos,
Loyal ministers appear.
