By Alia Aurami for Enlivening Edge Magazine This Editorial is going to be short and to the point. It’s going to express Enlivening Edge’s Evolutionary Purpose in a new context. Our evolutionary purpose is stated as Catalyzing relationships among innovators who are accelerating the evolution of organizations and social systems for human and environmental thriving. The past few years have been very different from previous years, for most people. To one degree or another, it seems as if many are discouraged, confused, disoriented, weary, apathetic, apprehensive, or disengaged. They have no understanding, no control. They can’t find the energy to …

By Diederick Janse, Guest writer for Corporate Rebels, and originally published at corporaterebels.com Methods are useful. They are like a recipe, encoding the lessons learned by others and helping us avoid common pitfalls. They also carry a risk, however. We tend to get attached to our methods, blinding us to whatever doesn’t fit. I speak from experience. In 2007 I discovered Holacracy, a method for running an organization differently (these days it’s called self-organization or self-management). I went all-in. I got trained, wrote a book (Dutch, English), and co-founded a company. I became one of those pesky evangelists that believe their method is the …

By Frederic Laloux and originally published here at thejourney.reinventingorganizations.com This video is about what might look like a point of detail… but a revealing one! I’m not a big fan of the word “vision”. Rather than developing a vision for the organization, can we hear a call for where the organization wants to go? The difference, as subtle as it might sound, is fundamental to me. 4 minutes 3 seconds Comment guidelines My hope is for the comments below the video[on the original publication webpage] to surface our collective wisdom on the topic. This could enrich the videos tremendously. Have you experienced …

Written collectively for Enlivening Edge Magazine This year we ask the core “calling question:” “What are the unimagined possibilities in our future of work?”. Exploring new ways for us to work is at the heart of our annual upcoming global Future of Work 24 Hours unconference May 12th & 13th. The initial call back in 2020 was to “Explore Our Potential for Disruption”. In those early days of pandemic-induced remote work, the vision for a global, remote Open Space event which would span all time zones emerged, and the Future of Work 24 Hours was born. Founders April Jefferson and …

By Optimi  and originally published at Optimi.co.nz In human-centred, decentralised organisations, autonomy is encouraged to empower people to do their best work. However when people are able to choose the way they work, making sure information flows well across the organisation can be a challenge! I’m a systems and processes nerd and have been experimenting with the #futureofwork as part of the Enspiral network for the last ten years. I’ve seen some of the best and worst approaches to making the information flow, here’s a few common themes and what to do about them. Three problems that arise from new ways of …

By Lead Together The Book and originally published on YouTube #strategy #entreprenuership #scaling Organizations plan in two ways: predicting the future and then aiming to control outcomes or sensing what’s changing and responding accordingly. The former continues to rule the day, but progressive leaders see that predictions have become less reliable. With this knowledge, they are shifting how their organizations set strategy. In this video, Lead Together co-authors Brent Lowe, Susan Basterfield and Travis Marsh share insights into how self-managing organizations adopt a bold approach to strategy. They discuss: – Sense and respond vs predict and control in strategy – …

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 Joost Minnaar and originally published at corporate-rebels.com Around the year 1900, rats were a huge problem in Hanoi, Vietnam — known then as French Indochina. The colonial government came up with a new public policy to solve the problem: a citywide rat bounty program. In an effort to encourage the local entrepreneurial spirit, and to provide locals with a new source of income, the government started to pay citizens to kill rats. But since the colonial rulers didn’t want to be bothered with the task of rat corpse disposal, they decided to pay a bounty of one cent to …

By Stephan Grabmeier and originally published at https://stephangrabmeier.de/bani-versus-vuca/ We live in a VUCA world: this summary used to hit the nail on the head during the last few decades. Through this lens, however, we no longer can derive useful information from this model. Instead, we seem to face chaos larger than VUCA – in politics, global warming and the current pandemic, any many other spheres of life. For future purposes, I therefore would like to propose that we apply the BANI acronym instead of VUCA. The meaning of each component of this new word – B:rittle, A:nxious, N:on-linear and I:ncomprehensible …
