Did you know that a scant fifteen percent of employees around the world are highly engaged in their work? Or that only one in five employees believe their opinions matter at work? We can change this...We need flat, fast, and open organizations that reward entrepreneurship and out-run change; that is a source of meaning and connection for employees and other stakeholders. The good news is that you don’t have to be the CEO to dismantle bureaucracy. Anyone can take the lead in building an organization that’s fit for human beings and fit for the future. Drawing from decades of research and their new WSJ Bestselling Book, Humanocracy, influential and iconoclastic business thinkers Gary Hamel and Michele Zanini will show you how to find the courage to challenge the status quo, how to rid yourself of bureaucratic habits and beliefs, and what you can learn from organizations that have made the jump to “humanocracy."
