Bill Fischer and Simone Cicero on Haier and the entrepreneurial organisation

...scinated by, in general, Taoist thinking because it’s really postmodern to some extent. So there is a lot of parallels between postmodern thinking in Europe and in the West, and the Taoist perspective. The difference is maybe that postmodernity, as some people would recognise it in Europe or in the West, ...more
...dern thinking in Europe and in the West, and the Taoist perspective. The difference is maybe that postmodernity, as some people would recognise it in Europe or in the West, for example, relates to the world of philosophers such as Deleuze. It ends up with a social dimension. Really it’s about how we crea...more
...down to the frontline. So I’m curious what are there pieces of this cultural code, of this way of organising that might be challenging for people in Europe, for example, to really ‘get’? You know, I’m thinking about what you were saying earlier as well about Taoism and how that’s influenced this kind of ...more
... thinks first about the customer, the outside stuff, and then begins to draw the changes to be able to more effectively meet the customer. Whereas in Europe and the United States, the traditional response has been, “Let’s think about all the internal reasons we can’t do it before we even begin thinking ab...more
...n become an entrepreneur’, you know…people don’t buy this anymore I think. So I think, even if RenDanHeYi was born in China, I think, bringing it to Europe, it can really help us now to find a synthesis, and to bring these ways of organising beyond just creating the next user experience. And I think it’s...more
...ogues. I think that when we look at what Haier has been trying to do with General Electric in the US, and I think even what we’ve seen with Haier in Europe as well, when you give people the prospects of really using what they know, and having more autonomy to do that, they become fascinated by it, it bec...more
...pletely different world. Of course, China does not have the same compliance rules that you may have when you run an organisation in the US or even in Europe. Even worse, I would say, in Europe when there are all these constraints on hiring and firing an employee, and so on. ...more

Jorge Silva on horizontal structures and participatory culture at 10Pines

...are companies in South America that are working in this way. Because we have a lot of bibliographies and books and articles that come from the US and Europe and sometimes you tend to think that this is only happening in the US, or this is only happening in Europe. But we have a lot of examples here in Sou...more

But we have a lot of examples here in South America and we need other companies and people to know that they exist, in order to inspire them. So thi...more
... happy that you reached out to me, because I'm also always looking for stories that are beyond, you know, the usual ones that we hear from the US and Europe. And so I'm really happy that you're taking that on as your mission - to share stories and to spread the word and to teach people, you know, what you...more

Lisa Gill and Mark Eddleston celebrate 50 episodes of Leadermorphosis

...ed, and not just like how my thinking has shifted, but I think I have seen the movement mature. And when I say that, I guess I'm talking mainly about Europe, where I think this movement is most active and most mature. I know that Frederic Laloux is trying to spread the movement more in the U.S at the mome...more
...the movement is still quite emergent there. There's like real appetite for it, but it still has a bit of catching up to do I think, in terms of where Europe's got to. And so, just looking at the number of self-organising, self-managing companies over the last few years, and the familiarity with some of th...more
...o I know is going to shed some really valuable insights. And I've also been trying my best to have a diverse group of guests: so not just people from Europe and North America, not just people who are white, not just people who are academics, not just people who are leaders of organisations, but people on ...more

Frederic Laloux with an invitation to reclaim integrity and aliveness

...d Petit BamBou. It’s a subscription-based app. And I think it charges like five Euros a month. And this app has like five million subscribers when in Europe the French speaking population is something like 70 million. Five million paid subscribers for a meditation app out of 70 million, next to hundreds o...more

Margaret Wheatley on leadership and Warriors for the Human Spirit

...of connectedness. But the other dynamic here is identity politics. And it's very strong in the States, I really don't see it nearly as destructive in Europe, but it's there and it's coming. Which is the way we think we have to enter a group is being very visible and respected for our identity. Think gende...more
