Where Social Change Meets Personal Development

Posted on 10 Jan 2021 by admin

One of the most significant developments in the last 25 years is the huge growth of the "problem solving industry". It is as if the world now consists of two disconnected halves. One half is constantly creating problems and the other half is constantly trying to solve them or prevent them. This is as true for organisations and countries as it is for individuals. Just think how many people are involved these days in "problem-solving" jobs. These include the obvious ones, such as doctors, nurses, police, social workers, therapists, life coaches, counsellors, and lawyers, but also the less obvious ones, such as politicians, authors of self-help books, people in NGOs and policy institutes, as well as civil servants at all levels of government. The more we think about it, the more people appear on the list. A very large number of people in the world today rely for their income and job security on a huge and predictable supply of problems for the foreseeable future. It begs the question of what they would do in a problem-free world.
