I investigated how founding CEOs from Taoist cultures infuse one paradoxical component into the other when managing temporal and social-relational tensions in corporate development. I used an inductive methodological approach to analyze 71 in-depth qualitative interviews with founding CEOs and their direct subordinates from 13 Chinese privately owned companies. I found cognitive and behavioral approaches geared to temporal and social-relational tensions. Following yin-yang philosophy, CEOs cognitively identified ways to infuse competing elements into each other and took specific actions to do so, going beyond the both/and approaches identified in current paradox management theories. This research adds nuance to our understanding of the intersection of leadership and paradox, particularly regarding how leaders infuse one competing element into the other in tension management based on the yin-yang view.
