New Economy Seminar Series Looks Amazing!
Old ways of doing business are becoming obsolete as the speed, complexity, and distress of the world increases. Technological innovation and depleting resources are creating the perfect storm from which a new economic system must emerge. This system doesn’t extract natural and human resources and turn them into profit for the uber-rich. This system regenerates degraded ecosystems, revives debased communities, and recapitalizes the middle class as innate outcomes of day-to-day operations. In this system every human being has the opportunity to discover their higher purpose and give their gifts fully to the world. Workers have autonomy and flexibility and make enough to thrive. How is this possible? Join us in this series of 6 talks to find out what the New Economy looks like and how to become a part of it.
Wednesday April 5th 6:30-8:00pm at the Impact Hub
Encoding the Legal, Financial and Social Foundations for Teal Organizations
with Tom Thomison
Rapidly changing business environments reward organizational agility, which prompts a move to decentralized decision making. Emerging Teal models of self-organization like Holacracy® distribute authority across the organization while aligning the work with an overarching purpose.
But too often the employer / employee divide still persists as a refuge for personal power holding. Encode.org pushes the decentralization of power even further by encoding new legal, financial and social agreements in the pioneering model of the „For-Purpose Enterprise“ comprised of Organization, Company and Association.
With its groundbreaking work encode.org is deeply aligned with the fundamental Teal principles of self-management, wholeness and evolutionary purpose as described by Frederic Laloux in “Reinventing Organizations”. At the same time the For-Purpose Enterprise is not just an aspiration but an actual lived reality that an increasing number of pioneering organizations are adopting and exploring.
Speaker Bio: Tom Thomison, co-Founder and partner of encode.org and HolacracyOne, will share encode.org’s genesis from evolutionary tensions emerging from successful implementations of Holacracy and how encode.org addresses them within its new framework to go beyond employment and liberate purposeful work.
