What Happened?

June 4, 2011 § Leave a comment

“After so many years of defending ourselves against life and searching for better controls, we sit exhausted in the unyielding structures of orgnisations we’ve created, wondering what happened.

What happened to effectiveness, to creativity, to meaning? What happened to us? Trying to get these structures to change becomes the challenge of our lives. We draw their futures and design them into clearly better forms. We push them, we prod them. We try fear, we try enticement. We collect tools, we study techniques. We try everything we know and end up nowhere.

What happened?”

Margaret Wheatley and Myron Kellner-Rogers
