Changing People

I've expressed concern previously about use the phrase "driving change" but now realise that my true discomfort goes deeper.

What bothers me is the underlying assumption that we can change other people – or have the right to try. We can't and we don't.

We can change our own behaviours, we can change processes and structures, but we can’t change people – only they can.

And they have to want to.
