Visit to UK
Hi Our organisation in Western Australia (Enablewa) has implemented a self managing philosophy/structure across the organisation of just over 560 employees. We are 18 months into the staged transition and very excited about what I see and hear. We have had some challenges and continue to have more. We have multiple sites across a largish geographical area. I have the opportunity to visit the UK in late March and wondered if there were people out there that would be willing to talk about their experiences and learning.
Hi Robert, I work with medium sized organisations to help them to design their services, but at the same time to arrange their staff to work together in teams that then work far more independantly than previous. This goes hand in hand with developing the manager and leaders to change and develop their behaviours and approaches to sustain and work with those teams. What type of business is your organisation? It woudl be great to hear more.
Hi John. Thanks for the contact. Our organisation works mainly in the disability sector. We have just under 900 clients, a staff of around 650 spread across a large geographical area. We work in people’s homes and their community. We are progressively moving the decision making and responsibility away from a centralized model and flattening the structure. We’re already seeing positive outcomes, it’s not without it’s challenges but convinced we’re on the right track. Feel free to contact me via email at. email@example.com
In our always-on, instantly gratifying, perpetually productive, and consumptive culture — there has been little room to reflect on our feelings. That is until we were forced to stop. Our thoughts and emotions won’t be kept under the hood any longer. The cultural lexicon is transforming right before our eyes as we let go of what was, and welcome what can be.
"What if we don’t want return-hungry investors as shareholders in our company?" This is a question we often get asked, especially at flourishing start-ups. They are afraid that money motivated investors will harm their progressive, mission-driven companies. Are there other, more sustainable, investment options? Yes! Take the case of BuurtzorgT and Purpose Evergreen Capital. They show an alternative way to deal with investors.
For months—maybe even years—we have talked about an online Corporate Rebels Academy. But, with our busy schedules and travels, we always found an excuse to not start this journey. Then the corona crisis changed everything. We cancelled most of our trips, cleared our agendas for months to come, and found ourselves with time to work on things that were overdue. This included our very own online Corporate Rebels Academy.
