I’m Johnnie Moore, and I help people work better together

I’ve been enjoying A Simpler Way by Margaret Wheatley and Myron Kellner-Rogers. I’ve found myself underlining quite a lot of it. Here’s the bit that caught my eye this morning.

Life accepts only partners, not bosses. We cannot stand outside a system as an objective, distant director. There is no objective ground to stand on anywhere in the entire universe.

Systemswork with themselves; if we aren’t part of the system, we have no potency. Systems do not accept direction, only provocation.

I especially like that last sentence.
