Welcome to our new forum!
Welcome to our brand new forum! It's the place to connect, learn, share, and take action to make work more fun.
I'll use my very first "topic" to invite you to create an account and introduce yourself right here.
So, who are you? Why are you here? And what do you want to get out of this forum?
Look forward to get to know all of you!
I work for a Housing Association in South Wales and I don't currently have a job title.
My organisation is currently very traditional in structure and management practises. Thankfully my leaders want us to become more progressive. The team I work in are the first step towards this so we're rebelling against the system.
I'm here to be inspired by the community and to share our experiments in the hope that they start conversations.
Awesome! My name is Florine. I'm lucky enough to work with Corporate Rebels, through their new venture 'Revolt'.
With Revolt we help companies transform to progressive workplaces, so that employees and customers are happy and the company has a healthy growth.
I'm here to connect with other rebels, to learn from others, and to share my own learnings and insights.
I live in Amsterdam and love to get into the ocean or mountains when I have time off.
Hi, I'm Linda and work for a rather large business software company in Germany. The company started fairly progressive 45 years ago, but has grown more traditional as it grew in size.
Now we have pockets within the organization looking to reintroduce some of those values, (lack of) structures, and ways of working. I'm part of one of those pockets :)
Here, I hope to encounter like-minded people, open to sharing and inspiring others.
Naturally rebellious Welshman living and working in Orkney for the time being, bit of a rolling stone though so who knows where gravity will take me next! it's all downhill from here! Hahahah :)
Just sat sipping my brew, blasting out some filthy Drum & Bass on Soundcloud, whilst perusing this new forum with interest...
Enjoyed the CR session in Orkney a few weeks back. Was interesting to see and hear from Joost & Pim, hope you guys enjoyed the magnificent Orcadian scenery and great historical sites. Also the sandwiches were good, despite the lack of plates - made for some good problem solving skills though; who needs plates when you have saucers leftover from the earlier coffee?! ;)
I am keen to see how this new paradigm can be achieved but doubtful that it can be shifted to in monolithic organisations such as the NHS and Local Government.
I do think that in such institutions there will be an innate resistance to any form of change as it will be seen as threatening to the status quo and the petty fiefdoms and power bases which some will have accrued.
Just a personal belief, doesn't make it right! Perhaps i'm too much of a cynic?
Great stuff guys! Looks awesome!
I am Mathijs van Schijndel, 32, live in Eindhoven and currently ‘work’ as an independent change agent and business consultant. If not in work-mode I love to travel the world and meet new people. Just got back from Cambodia, yieehaaaa!
Curious to find out how this forum thing will work out!
Keep. moving! Cheers!
There is a lot of comfort in knowing your way of running meetings is actually effective. Comforting because you know people aren’t annoyed by being in a pointless or unfocused meeting, and also because you know something is actually getting accomplished.
Everything we do at the Corporate Rebels is aimed at our mission: to make work more fun. That’s why we started this blog five years ago and continue to publish stories twice a week. But guess what? We are now much more than a blog. We publish books, conduct research, work with clients, talk at conferences, manage a foundation, and have an online academy. It’s all by design. By expanding our activities, we’ve grown our impact. And we think you should join us.
When writing our book "Corporate Rebels, Make Work More Fun,” we missed the initial publication deadline by about two years. Now, with our second book, we’ve managed to miss yet another deadline. Let’s talk about it.
