Corporate Rebels for Non-profits
I am very interested in what Corporate Rebels are doing and I have founded and been running a free youth technology and leadership non-profit club for 6 years in CA in the US. We are a all volunteer-run organization that offers free learning opportunities to youth, grades K-12. We have a flat organization; everyone is equal, and I have been trying to encourage formation of self-managing teams and move towards self-governance. Any resources or advice for motivating a volunteer workforce who can walk at any time that is lead by influence without money, authority, title, or budget?
Today marks an important day in Corporate Rebels’ vaunted history: We're embarking on a new adventure to radically shake up the world of work. How? We're launching a new company together with some of the most inspiring workplace pioneers in the world.
How are work outcomes affected by the treatment of those who do it? I have been exploring this question for ~50 years. In that time, one comment stuck with me more than any other. It was made in 1998 when I interviewed a group of men in Indianapolis who had redesigned most of the US city’s waste collection and disposal operations. “We are no longer expected to park our brains at the door when we come to work.”
