Yet, this disruption brings the possibility of profound personal, societal and global renewal. We need to stop and ask: Why do we collectively create results nobody wants? What keeps us locked into the old ways of operating? And, perhaps most importantly, what can we do to transform these patterns that keep us locked in the past?
