By Gideon Rosenblatt and originally published at alchemyofchange.net This is Part 1 of a 2-part article. We can learn a lot about organizations from biology. In my last post, I wrote about how the membrane of the cell provides a new perspective on the way organizations connect with the world around them. I closed that piece by noting that the “intelligence of the [cell’s] membrane is a metaphor for something very specific and very real…something that exists in every organization…” This post picks up on that topic of organizational intelligence and what the science of living systems tells us about …

By Manuel Perez Gomez & Stephanny Pena for Enlivening Edge Magazine Teal is a paradigm shift, an entirely new way of thinking about power, leadership, collaboration, and what it means to be human and whole at work. The free Global Teal Meetup is a space where we can redesign these dynamics together, explore concepts like wholeness, self-management, and evolutionary purpose, and learn how to use them to build the next stage of organizations (1). The idea of celebrating these events came from the success of the global Teal Around The World conferences hosted by The Teal Network, which connect communities …

By Mark Eddleston and originally published on newwaysofworking Traditional decision-making 🧍‍♂️ In most organisations, centralised authority (such as the senior leadership team) holds much of the power. A few people at the top make most decisions, plus some lucky middle managers, while everyone else does as they are told. Employees need approval before they can do stuff that they haven’t been told to do. A few things may be approved here and there but, typically, lots of people feel frustrated and disempowered. Decisions are too often made by people who are far away from the customer or information, while promising …

By Natasha Miller Naderi and originally published at medium.com/@natasha.naderi When a group of diverse and intelligent minds comes together, amazing things can happen. Conversations can be almost magical — leading to greater innovation, the discovery of products we never imagined, and solutions to complex problems that no one could solve alone. Team decision-making creates exponential learning, unified action, greater energy and momentum, and so much more. However, the unfortunate reality is that teams frequently fail to live up to this ideal. Have you participated in a “team decision” where only one or two people did the thinking and the rest …

And the continuing adventures of SOCIHi everyone. Last year (or maybe the year before), Medium censored one of my posts with effectively no explanation or process. So I no longer feel called to post here. If you’d like to follow my work (such as it is), my new home is at Substack.https://deepcode.substack.com/p/on-the-future-of-the-blockchain“In February of 2016, I wrote an essay concerning the nature and potential of Bitcoin. With now five years of water under the bridge, and the price of Bitcoin increasing a hundredfold, I figured it would be worth returning to the topic and reexamining the landscape. In the present essay, …

Triangulating the Discourse and Moving Forward Together*This article was first published in The Side View in May, and is paired with The Hypermodern Highway to Hell which was published here in October.IntroductionWhat is metamodernism and how can it help us collectively navigate these troubled, transitional times? The meaning of such a word must be disambiguated and its complexity foregrounded. At this point, there is no shortcut. As my colleague Hanzi Freinacht says, there’s no elevator pitch, you have to take the stairs. In this article, I will try to carry you, dear reader, up a few flights.Metamodernism is an irreducibly complex and contested …

Making the Move to Meta-Modern Monetary TheoryIn this trilogy of articles (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3), I interpolate Tomas Bjorkman’s magnum opus The World We Create: From God to Market, which is designed to awaken us to our own social constructions and develop a more conscious society based on evolutionary and complexity thinking, and ultimately reimagine monetary relations. I reviewed some broader themes of his book and the implications of the movement in an article titled The World We’re Creating (2018), which I followed up with The World That’s Emerging (2020). This is a process that invites our network as …
