In auto racing, the maximum amount of directional force available to a tire is visualized as a traction circle. When force is applied to a tire that is in excess of the size of the traction circle, you lose traction, the vehicle will skid and, usually, crash. Similarly, there is a maximum amount of stress and pressure available to individuals with an organization and within an organization itself. When that stress and pressure is exceeded, the individuals and organizations can start to spiral and crash.
