A system change by Otto Scharmer

As we see pictures of German citizens cheering tens of thousands refugees arriving from Syria and other war zones, we may be witnessing an emerging pattern of the years to come: bureaucracy is failing (EU), systems collapsing (millions of Asylum seeking refugees in urgent need of helping hands) – AND: citizens rising to the occasion!

The logic of collective action is suddenly shifting from the head to the heart. Or, put differently: from applying yesterday’s rules onto the current situation, to co-sensing from the current situation what response is needed from us, right now.
