About the book
Human beings are profoundly social creatures, participating in a huge variety of human (and other, wider) systems. Those human systems may include: family, team, organization, community, nation, faith group, political party, volunteer association, and more – yet we are blind to how these systemic contexts shape our lives.
Context-blindness is costly. It results in debilitating personal stress, broken relationships, lost opportunities, diminished contributions, and destructive interactions within and across systems. It is the place where our hopes, and dreams, and ambitious projects go to die.
In Context, Context, Context, Barry Oshry shows how context-blindness paralyzes organizations – stalling change programs, undermining communication, sabotaging teamwork and entrenching unwanted and unhelpful divisions.
Context, Context, Context tells the tale of a single organization in its struggle to achieve excellence. The story illuminates for all of us the power that comes from transforming context-blindness into context-sight.
