Navigating in the World of Pyramids

Being generous and fair is not enough in today business climate. The spiral may be strong, but it still works in the context of the larger marketplace where such values as I have put forth do not mean anything. In most cases, the only thing a business customer asks is, “What is in it for me?” There is some variation in this dealing with an individual. Many people do support companies that are in alignment with a set of values, as the rise of socially responsible investment shows. However, in a business to business relationship, your “partner” is only going to care about whether you can deliver what he needs at the best price.

How do you exist in the world as a business which is dominated by the “play to win” attitudes in a culture that awards aggression and violence with money and power?

One possibility is found in the character of Odysseus who Homer often calls, “Odysseus the tactician.”

His story is told after the Trojan War, and it took him a full ten years to make it home. The greatest heroes died. Like many of the most successful business people, Odysseus takes huge risks. In fact, he risks his life. Yet he survives because he is cunning and knows how to game his situation to his best advantage. He can see events and manipulate his way through his advantage. Similarly, in business it is to your advantage to be and recognized an opponents strengths and weaknesses.

Odysseus differs from the average business Joe significantly. His journey, the war and the events that follow it, are not for his personal material profit and gain. He does not care about these things. He accumulates nothing from the war but experience and he survives because of it. Home, not gold trinkets, is the objective.

In the story, Odysseus travels home with a crew which in the story represents the average man. In one instance, the men are transformed into pigs by Circe because of their greed for food and drink. What a perfect metaphor! Odysseus saves them by tricking the witch with the help of the gods who watch over him. In the process, she becomes his lover and an alliance who helps him on his journey. Yet over time, despite Odysseus’ attempts to guild them, only he makes it back to his homeland. The rest of his crew dies.

Odysseus is agile because embodies initiated masculinity. He is both the puer, the eternal youth on a journey; and the senex, the wise old man who has been to battle and survived.

Companies to survive in the long term somehow embody these two key elements. The senex represents core values that remain constant and never change. He is time, structure, history, patience and experience. He has fought in the war and survived. The puer holds vision, spirit, innovation and experimentation. He is adaptable to the marketplace and seize new initiative opportunities. To be successful in the long term, a company always has to have new creative energy at its center, as embodied by the puer. Yet it has to channel this energy wisely into the marketplace and give it proper structure, as represented by the senex.

An archetype of the puer is strongest when a man is in his youth. He embodies new ideas, spirit and the energy to break structures down. It is hard for any man outside his twenties to keep this kind of energy alive in himself and it becomes more critical as he grows older. Yet it is easy enough to wake up in your forties and fifties and find the corpse of your puer sitting on the doorstep of your home.

Age does not guarantee that one has these qualities. One can old and stuck in youth or foolish and ignorant in old age. The shadow side of a puer is shown by a man in his thirties or forties whose journey has accomplished nothing significant or contributing to the society at large. The negative senex s is the old, embittered man who is rigid and stuck in his ways. Also, inn feminine archetype, the two equivalent figures are the maiden and the crone.

Odysseus provides a textbook of situations and how to deal with them in business and in life. He tricks, he steals, he leads and he comes out the wiser for it. Though he has many experiences which take him off course and challenge his abilities, he never forgets his journey.
