By Alia Aurami for Enlivening Edge Magazine*  “The only constant, permanent thing in life is change itself.” ∼Heraclitus, Ancient Greek Philosopher Constant change is tough for people who aren’t used to it and have no specific skills for dealing with change itself. Yet changing with resilience is a habit, capacity, or skillset people can cultivate. We organizational innovators have experienced a thing or two about the process of adapting to frequent change. Our challenge is whether we’ve learned enough from our experience to play a helpful role for humanity in current times. What resilience skills learned from our work as …

By Evgenya Nee for Enlivening Edge Magazine “When you can make opposites into complements then you move forward.” ~Norman Wolfe At the First-Thursday EE Community Conversation in September Norman Wolfe was our inspiring storyteller about how he came to understand Why Profit is Important – The Grounding of the Consciousness Movement. The conversation was resonant and thought-provoking for me. Norman’s points on profit and leadership are sometimes “far out” from others in the conscious business community. Nonetheless, his 2011 ground-breaking book The Living Organization has become widely recognized. Norman started his work life in 1969. In one of his first …

By Christiane Seuhs-Schoeller and as a single article originally published at christianesplace.com This is Part One of a two-part article. Part Two is here. Introduction: Setting the context for power in self-organization For over half a century, we have seen a growing movement dedicated to finding new ways to organize work. People have innovated many alternatives to the management hierarchy that emerged out of the industrial revolution and became a globally dominant organizational model. One thing seems to be clear; the power hierarchy has run its course. The complex circumstances of the 21st century call for  a different way for …

By Christiane Seuhs-Schoeller and as a single article originally published at christianesplace.com This is Part Two of a two-part article. Part One is here. What then do we do about power? In every social system, we find power in interpersonal dynamics. Power (as such) is neither good nor bad, but it needs to be made explicit through open communication and clear agreements. Groups need safe spaces where these communications can take place to create the necessary agreements. The concepts of the For-Purpose Enterprise and the Symbiotic Enterprise both define a clear People Context. This enables the differentiation of organizational and …

Part Two is here. “You know, Grandpa,” said his nine-year-old granddaughter from the backseat to Robert Annaars while they were driving, “Electric cars are actually worse for the climate than cars with petrol, because of the production of batteries.” Robert works in the valve industry sourcing all kinds of highly specialized valves that are used by the “super-villain” — if there is any — as portrayed by the likes of Extinction Rebellion or Greta Thunberg: the rich and powerful oil …

By Dennis Wittrock and originally published as a single article at Medium.com/encode-org This is Part Two of a two-part article Read Part One here. The For-Purpose Enterprise to the rescue… In their quest of solving these problems, Raëma and Robert encountered the work of encode.org and its model of the “For-Purpose Enterprise”. Not unlike Holacracy, a For-Purpose Enterprise (FPE), puts purpose front and center. Yet its scope is broader than merely self-organizing the context of work, which is the great strength of Holacracy practice. An FPE therefore happily incorporates the Holacracy Constitution (or any comparable self-organization ruleset) as the agreement for its work context. …

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 …

By Julia Markish and originally published here SCORE Listen! What does it all count for? You keep craning your neck to spot the giant scoreboard in the sky. Only the delusional keep score, their rulebooks marked by felt-tipped lies.   You count words, miles, hours, dollars, but they don’t add up. They are sinking bricks in your delicate pool. They stack along its bottom, a useless mass, slowly forcing your water over its edge.   You find dead pine needles, and hold them up as yardsticks. They lie in mounds, and you root for each as if for a prize, …
