Leadership is Constant When One Realizes Her Contribution to the Problem

Guess what? You play a role in what you are complaining about.
Peter Block, in a 2005 address to the Servant Leadership Conference in Indianapolis, IN, had this to say:
“In a ownership conversation, take whatever you are complaining about and say, ‘What have I helped to do to create that situation?’ Beautiful question. ‘What’s my contribution to the problem? What have I helped to do?’ It means I am an owner. Whatever I complain about, let me turn that question and say, ‘How have I created that thing?’ It’s a conversation of ownership.”
What are your thoughts?
Does this cause you to reconsider the role you play in what you complain about?
