... how little I was involved in things that impacted me and I saw so much wasted potential - so I think that was the seed. And then reading books like 'Reinventing Organisations', I just became fascinated that this was possible and discovered all of these case studies and I just wanted more.

...e three stages of adopting self-management: the first being head - the kind of intellectual stage, and then the second being heart. Once you've read Reinventing Organisations, or once you've read these different books: Brave New Work, or blogs, or whatever it is, you kind of get it intellectually, but then there's this who...more

Because I think that some of the listeners might be like a lot of the people that come along to Reinventing Work; some are curious, but they're not quite doing it.
