Zoom MeetingThursday October 14, 2021 7:30am to 8:30am

  • Facilitator(s): Elizabeth Evans- 262-243-4283 [email protected]
  • Topic: Goodbye Command and Control
    • “People organize together to accomplish more, not less. Behind every organizing impulse I hope that by joining with others we can accomplish something important that we could not accomplish alone. And this impulse to organize in order to accomplish more is not only true of humans but found in all living systems. Every living thing seeks to create a world in which it can thrive. . . As a living system self-organizes, it develops shared understanding of what’s important, what’s acceptable behavior, what actions are required, and how these actions will get done. It develops channels of communication, networks of workers, and complex physical structures. And as the system develops, new capacities emerge. Looking at this list of what a self-organizing system creates leads to the realization that the system can do for itself most of what leaders have felt was necessary to do to it.”
