In Chapter 5 - Redefining Professionalism, we have a sidebar called "How Can I Change Anything? I'm Not in Charge!" This is often how things feel, that the problem exists solely in other people, and that, since we ourselves are behaving perfectly, we could not be part of the problem.

This short video is a great introduction to how we can shift our worldview a bit on this topic. Have a watch and see how it works for you.
