How to influence the system that guides how you work (it's possible)

Stream:
Systems

We know how we work is influenced by bosses, colleagues, employees, projects, tools, assumptions, beliefs, management systems ... and yes, additional elements not mentioned here.

Combined, these elements make up the system that guides how we work.

So the best question to ask is: How can you influence your bosses, colleagues, employees, projects, tools, assumptions, beliefs, management systems ... and yes, additional elements not mentioned here (e.g., your job description) ... to improve the system that guides how you (and the people in your department, organization, etc.) work?

(It's possible. And we all have the ability to do so.)
