"Stand by a holistic approach to your interventions."
Allopathic: The Western Medical model in use today, is based upon the concept that the physician is responsible for the healing, and that "disease" must be eradicated from the body using heroic intervention.
I chose to use this term to describe an issue that often befalls us in our efforts to facilitate organizational interventions. We're often called in by organizations that are "sick," meaning that their dysfunction has become so untenable that something simply must be done about it…"Our organization is broken and we need to fix it!" Let me provide a metaphorical example.
Some people mindlessly eat fast food and ice cream sundaes for years until one day diabetes sets in or their heart stops. They rush off to the hospital to get "fixed," with little thought about how they've been responsible for the day to day actions they took or didn't take that facilitated this emergency.
Just as we can ignore our bodies needs at the expense of our physical health, some of us ignore ours and others emotional and social needs, at the expense of building our technical capacities, only to find one day that no one can work with this technical "genius" because now he's an emotional moron. Further, because the leaders for whom these individuals work have not been willing to moderate their venom for others, they now feel it's time to call in the "doctor." Someone with the power to hire and fire, whose given up the power to manage ineffective behavior, now feels it's time to have an expert come in to fix the problem!
