We Are All Part of the Problem and the Solution

The folly of trying to influence change from a separate point of view

Interdependence changes everything

  1. I recognize I am part of the system, not a separate actor who exists outside of the system.
  2. As part of the system, I realize that I am holding onto the behaviors and mindsets that must change in order to solve the problem.
  3. I must accept and acknowledge ways that I might be contributing to this problem.
  4. I need to reflect on what I need to change in my behavior to facilitate this change.
  5. I need to determine if I must “show up” differently than my current default.
  6. I need to take time to notice how shifts in my behavior influence changes in others and the system.

Interdependence inspires change
