We have outgrown the hierarchical organization

24 aug 2020

Thirty-two years ago, I stepped into a "real" organization for the first time. A Swedish company with about 600 employees. Most of them were women, with little formal education. This new world was a mystery to me. How can grown-ups make themselves so small at work, silencing themselves in the presence of managers?   These [...]

Vi har växt ur den hierarkiska organisationen

24 aug 2020

För trettiotvå år sedan klev jag in i en ”riktig” organisation för första gången. Ett helt vanligt, svenskt företag med drygt 600 anställda, varav de flesta var lågutbildade kvinnor. Denna nya värld var ett mysterium. Den största gåtan var hur fullvuxna människor kunde göra sig så små på jobbet, tysta sig själva i chefers närvaro. [...]

Organically Emerging Team Power - an Effect of the Corona Crisis?

18 apr 2020

Organically Emerging Team Power - an Effect of the Corona Crisis?   I wonder whether this period will just be a big parenthesis in history. When the crisis is over, will we return to our habitual ways of working and being together, or will we maintain the new collaborative behaviors we learned? My intent is [...]

Organiskt framväxande Teamkraft - en effekt av Coronakrisen?

15 apr 2020

Organiskt framväxande Teamkraft – en effekt av Coronakrisen?   Jag undrar om den här perioden bara kommer att bli en parentes.

Det vill säga de principer som inspirerar och karaktäriserar de flesta nya sätt att arbeta runt om i världen, oavsett om de beskrivs som agila, teal, holokratiska, sociokratiska, [...]

Three myths of Self-Organizing & Self-Management

5 jan 2019

I’m excited to witness a growing interest in creating better workplaces. In this blog entry I want to dig deeper into Self-organizing and Self-management, the principles that inspire and characterize most of the new ways of working around the world, whether they are labelled agile, teal, holocratic, sociocratic, horizontal or progressive. Why? Because they seem [...]

Agile learning organisations with Sociocracy 3.0

19 nov 2018

An interview with Susanne Pulverer, Leader of the Sustainability Agenda in IKEA India Retail, and of the Development of the Delhi Market. "In the traditional hierarchy, in that structure, there’s a smaller group who’s in the driver’s seat. We become a bottleneck for development. We need to find new ways to lead, organise and make [...]

”Thoughts for top leaders” who truly want to empower their organisation

27 maj 2018

You know you need to change the way you lead and work – but struggle to make change happen. If you do, you are not alone. Re-inventing Organisations, by Frederick Laloux, gave many of us hope.  In his book he describes 12 organisations in different industries that work, lead and organise in fundamentally new ways.

Excitement and Growth

27 mar 2018

Confusion, frustration, polarisation and even conflict seem to be unavoidable facets of the era we work and live in - a time of great complexity and rapid, often disruptive, change. And - sometimes well hidden - there’s also excitement and growth. I'm delighted to share my new Learning Portal with you - with the aim [...]
