How sad, if all there is to do is to change myself then the great American
experiment, our form of representative democracy, is an abismal failure.
Now, by myself, I may not be able to move the behavior of governments, but
I and I and I (read I and you and you...) should be able to. Isn't this
collective action one of the foundations of a Learning Organization?

Having a common goal, agreeing to action to attain the goal and learning
what works.


Managers count beans and keep time, Leaders, take risks and ask others to. Each of us must play both roles.
