How to run a company with (almost) no rules

How to run a company with (almost) no rules | Thriving in the Project Age | Scoop.it
What if your job didn’t control your life? Brazilian CEO Ricardo Semler practices a radical form of corporate democracy, rethinking everything from board meetings to how workers report their vacation days (they don’t have to). It’s a vision that rewards the wisdom of workers, promotes work-life balance — and leads to some deep insight on what work, and life, is really all about. Bonus question: What if schools were like this too?

Sensitive People Aren't Weak, They're Actually Natural-Born Leaders: You can’t lead without empathy.

Sensitive People Aren't Weak, They're Actually Natural-Born Leaders: You can’t lead without empathy. | Thriving in the Project Age | Scoop.it

Sensitivity is perhaps the most underrated quality in the world. It’s too often associated with fragility and weakness when it’s actually a tremendous strength.

Sensitive people are insightful and intelligent enough both to recognize and comprehend their own emotions. They’re also courageous enough to exhibit them in public.

Many of us would rather live in denial than acknowledge vulnerability. In turn, we never conquer our greatest fears and inner obstacles.

The world needs more people with sensitive souls, as they’re innately self-aware and empathetic. Individuals with these qualities are natural leaders.

All I know is that it is ONE possible application of Arthur Koestler (not mentioned or credited on Holacracy (TM) business site) ideas on holons and the resulting holarchy (term coined by Koestler). Mr. Robertson's trademark is an application that works, like any other applications, depending on the specific organizational and business context at hand. This is not THE universal solution. There is NO universal solution besides thinking twice before applying any solution to your given context; the solution to this context is not written anywhere; you have to co-create it with your stakeholders.

Luis Sequeira's curator insight, July 17, 12:17 PM

Holocracy as a different approach to management relates to agile principles, values and mindsets. It's a "fundamental change" as the author referes to and the transition could be difficult. Also, it is not a silver bullet, and eventually it is not suitable for some type or organisations and businesses.

The Autonomy of Things

The Autonomy of Things | Thriving in the Project Age | Scoop.it
Innovation happens at the intersections, and there's a giant collision happening in the not-too-distant future, where autonomous vehicles crash into the IoT and give birth to the Autonomy of Things.(This post was inspired by a conversation with Tim Woods of POCO Labs, who knows much more about these things than I ever will. However, all naive thinking my own!)Most discussions of the Internet of Things envision "smart" objects sensing, communicating and being controlled remotely. These

Excellent post, very challenging :). Once we have the Autonomy of Things, things are not things anymore, they are intelligent beings. And instead of wasting our time forecasting «precisely» the unexpected and trying to design the usual inefficient central command and control solutions to accelerated changes that we cannot even fanthom, I suggest another AoT to tackle what will happen at the «intersections», the self organized Autonomy of Teams. And I would not mind having a tractor as my best friend! :) Cheers!
