Yin-Yang philosophy

Regardless of the size of the project, Lidia and Michal’s level of involvement is superior. The couple is driven by challenge and always expands their solution capacity by simply being involved in each other’s thinking process. A Yin-Yang can be thought of as complementary forces interacting to form a dynamic system in which the whole is greater than the parts. Everything has both yin and yang aspects: with Lidia’s analogical analysis and artistry, her friendly yet persistent nature, and Michal’s discovery of constraints, resolutions, and his honest approach with clients; they are able to perform to exceed clients’ expectations.
