Wanted: suggestions for new Bucket list pioneers
We are always curious to discover potential pioneers for our Bucket list. Do you have suggestions for us? If so, please share them with us, and tell us why you think this pioneer should be added to the list.
I think it could be particularly interesting for you and others to learn about our self managed company in the health care sector.
And as well as an example for female leadership & female rebels! Geburtshaus Delphys, Zürich - Switzerland
We are a midwifery led care birthing house - means an out-of -hospital setting, where you can get care and give birth to your child supported only by midwifes. Kind like to give birth at home ..
we have a clear Vision why we work as we work: we want to support natural birth and a natural approach to pregnancy and childbirth!
wer are self-organized - means that all of us belong and own the company to equal parts. we work and decide on the basis of democratic principles - all of us have the same rights, no matter how long they are with us or how much experience they have. we work in a supported leadership and we have the possibility to hire new colleagues or to work with them as self-employed ones in a team.
we have some main protocolls and rules to follow like „state of the art“, obstetric protocols ...- and also some because we are in bond with the healthcare insurances.
besides those we have a lot of freedom how to work and what to decide! certanly also a lot of responsibility too!
We have lots of little temporary task forces which work on a topic either improving a worktructure or developing an obstetric topic - and bringing the results back to the whole team to discuss and decide.
we are transparent whit what we earn, what we can, how we are. Everybody can look into the salary of everybody. also all the midwifes earn the same.
we are very successful with this way to work! we are fully booked every moth of the year, we have a long waiting list for parents who want to give birth with us. financially we are healthy and we can pay ourself an ok wage. and we give ourself more holidays/free time than normal in Switzerland :)
if you want to visit us somedays, please contact me again! it would be a pleasure to me to show our organisation as a good initiative health care example!

Jutta does not get tired to research and speak up for equal opportunity workplaces and education. She is the personification of a rebel, armed with tons of reliable data and an even more reliable smile.
If we could tag one apocalyptic rider for adaptive organizations, it would be "traditional performance management." It is old-fashioned performance management that keeps us in a world of humans as resources, as command-and-control takers, with rigid top-down planning, and solid prevention of curious and exploratively-minded cooperation. Its logic is plan – do – check – act.
