What if the management structure most companies use causes preventable bottlenecks and breakdowns? Is it possible to challenge power structures that were put in place hundreds, if not thousands of years, ago? Brian Robertson did and his solution is awe-inspiring.
Have you ever been frustrated by power, hierarchy, or how these overlap in professional settings?
Have your ideas fallen on deaf ears? Or have the channels you need to go through to innovate or create change made it nearly impossible to do so?
It’s not often someone comes along and challenges power structures that were put in place before we were alive.
Brian Robertson, the founder of Holacracy, is one of these visionaries!
Holacracy is a management system for running purpose-driven, responsive companies. It makes use of the collective wisdom of individuals in an organization, rather than just a few. It also gives employees much more power to drive meaningful change. It is the first complete replacement for management where power rests in the CEO!
In this Man Alive Podcast conversation we discussed:
- What most commonly gets in the way of driving meaningful change
- How Holacracy is a revolutionary and effective replacement for management hierarchy
- The requirements of real empowerment and how to actually implement them
- Structures that re-organize power, give employees a voice and allow for more innovation
- How to learn from tensions that arise in business rather than avoid them
If you’ve ever been frustrated by corporate management structure, don’t miss this conversation! What Brian has created seriously blows my mind. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did and it empowers you to think outside the box.
