The Middle Extreme
When we avoid extreme positions, we have to be careful not to take the middle of the road position. That position is just as far from the extreme ends of any spectrum. It creates a third extreme position that might be aimed to find a compromise between the two extremes, but could actually displease both equally. This is the classic fence sitter that doesn’t want to rock the boat and takes the safe stance. Great teammates never prioritize peace over the best solution for the team.
