RIP: Paul Watzlawick

I just read at the Change Management blog, that Austrian-born psychologist and philosopher Paul Watzlawick died, on April 2, at age 85.

His book Change (co-written with John Weakland and Richard Fisch) was one of the texts I studied in Human Communication at Rutgers.

His ideas about change, communication, relationships, and therapy, had a major influence on several fields, including organization development.

The well-known axiom "You cannot not communicate" is one of many coined by him as a result of his deep understanding of how we communicate with one another.
