Sociocracy, Remote Work, and Distributed Organizations
As the shock of this pandemic has begun to wear off, visionary leaders are reimagining their organizations to optimize their operations and improve the performance of their people working remotely. Some are even beginning to ask, is there a better framework or model for collaborating, innovating, and accomplishing our objectives then how we’ve been doing things? Are we doing the right things? in the right ways?
The answer of course, is yes there is a better way. Over the past decade there have been many that have begun to prove themselves on their merits. As you may have seen a few weeks ago when I interviewed Doug Kirkpatrick, self management is one of them. Which of course requires self leadership, which Laurie Ruettimann spoke to our own Elisa Camahort Page about last week.
In furthering this discussion I’m grateful for the chance to explore Sociocracy – a framework for approaching decentralized decision making that is an emerging approach for improving remote work that is already considered essential for leading distributed organizations.
Please join me this Thursday afternoon December 17, 2020 at 1pm PT when I will interview the cofounders of Governance Alive, John Buck and Monika Megyesi about their work to advance decentralized leadership with Sociocracy. For the last 12 years, they have been on the forefront of this movement, working with leaders from around the world to develop their governance model that unleashes the full potential value of the organization and its people.
