“Business as usual” is dead – cubicles, bad bosses, suffocating office cultures, and micro-management. But what do we turn to instead? As a purpose-driven entrepreneur, how do we replace the default organizational structure for one that is going to support company’s purpose?

In this episode, we join Brian Roberston for a discussion around organizational structures to rethink the default “top-down” approach of management. We talk all about why traditional team and leadership structures hinder our company’s purpose, and how a self-management system can work to bring out the best in ourselves as leaders and our teams.

Brian also shares his back-story for how Holacracy came to be and gives specific advice for when and how purpose-driven founders might go about implementing a self-management system like Holacracy.
