Communities Scale...You Don't - It's Not Who You Are; It's How You Connect

We are so done with hierarchy and scientific management that we can't stop talking about it at conferences. But when we get back to the workplace, we get pulled into the same old dynamics of authority and control. Do you know why? Because they work.

And yet the opposite is true as well: the time is right to introduce collaboration, influence and co-creation in the workplace. Not as a replacement of hierarchy, but rather as an upgrade. We need Social Architects to do this upgrade.

For those of you who have the courage to dive deeper into who you are as a practitioner, this is an invitation to not stop there. It takes courage to honor what is there already and to open up a new dimension. The world needs to recognise your character and presence to show hierarchical caterpillar organizations how to use their community wings.
