If we recognise that situations are more complicated than we are often prepared to admit, we become a step closer to affecting change in the work place. He urges us to see "interrelationships rather than linear cause-effect chains" and to see "processes of change rather than snapshots" (Senge, 2006:73). Looking at every part of our work as a cycle, allows us to view our role as of more significance. We are always part of the process - our personal aims, values and understandings affect others and so, if there are problems we must take responsibility. Systems thinking maintains that a change in us does not work in isolation, but has an effect on others. We need to commit to our own personal development - learning what our goals are, and this will enhance the groups that we are part of.
