Shift: Is it the wrong question?

There’s an interesting-looking unconference next week (21 July 15) in London. The question that is being floated is “Why aren’t organisations shifting? For all the talk of a deep shift required in our organisations, why is very little actually transforming?” It’s a great question. But I think it may also be the wrong question. I don’t really believe in organisations, so I’d rather talk about people. And I can only really speak about my own experience, not that of other people. So let me reframe the question: “Why aren’t I shifting faster than I am?”
