Enlivening Edge Magazine Editor’s Note: Here is a previous article in Enlivening Edge Magazine about Organic Organization (O2), an open source approach to self-management originated in Brazil   By Davi Gabriel Zimmer Da Silva and originally published on targetteal.com As humans, we have an intrinsic desire to direct our own actions. We hate not being able to make decisions about our own lives. At work, we appreciate making choices and following the paths we believe in. This is what we call autonomy, a powerful intrinsic motivator. However, we also like to have direction. There are times we feel anxious to find ourselves in

Lisa Gill interviews Miquel, Blanca and Pau originally published at leadermorphosis.co 65 minutes 42 seconds Listen here. Deerns Spain, a team of around 60 engineers, has been on a transformation journey since March 2020.

I talked to Miquel Castellvi (General Coordinator), Blanca Capdevila (People & Culture) and Pau Riera (Commitment Coordinator) who shared stories about how they changed their organisational structure, their self-managing salary process, giving feedback and dealing with conflicts, and the role of the Values and Culture team.

By Dennis Wittrock and originally published on holacracy.org This article describes how startups can better respond to the need for more organizational structure by knowing real alternatives to conventional hierarchy, and when to make a deliberate operating system change. For most startups, there are obvious stages in their development where fundamental decisions need to be made. In the beginning, founders may meet at university or get together with friends to explore a business idea. After a period of experimentation, those who do not fail in the early stages (which is most startups) will reach a stage where the product-market fit

By Joost Minnaar and originally published on corporate rebels So, I recently came across an old tweet of Jurgen Appelo, in which he asks: “Apart from Holacracy, the “Spotify model” and Liquid Organization, what other frameworks/models do you know for adaptable org structures?” It made me reflect on all the different “adaptable organizational structures” we’ve come across over the last years. Here is the (not so exhaustive) list I managed to come up with

By Ted Rau and originally published in an email, a press release, and on LinkedIn.com In four weeks, Sociocracy for All will be ready to publish a new book that I wrote. The book will be called Collective Power. Patterns for A Self-organized Future. What “Collective Power” is The intention of the book is to show the underlying patterns of collaboration in groups. The better we understand the patterns of cooperation, the better we can design systems where humans thrive.  Those conceptual parts are intermixed with stories. People often say, “This was a great training, but the stories you tell

Lisa Gill interviews Ted Rau originally published at leadermorphosis.co 58 minutes 20 seconds Listen here. What can the realm of self-management and new ways of working learn from the realm of polyamory, Relationship Anarchy and open relationships? And how can practices in self-organising work teams help us improve our personal relationships? Ted Rau is the co-founder of Sociocracy for All and author of books like ‘Who Decides Who Decides?’ and ‘Many Voices One Song’.

By Brent Lowe and originally published at leadtogether.co Power is woven through all our relationships, shaping our interactions and permeating our organizations. Rarely, however, do we acknowledge it. It’s easy to have good intentions and still build an organization full of powerless people. Power is an emotive issue in organizations. Individuals who feel disempowered experience frustration and resentment, while those with power often struggle to manage their positional authority. Today, the structures that have traditionally shaped power dynamics in organizations are being challenged by new models of leadership. But what are these emerging forms of leadership? And how do they
