A ‘self-management’ trend has been gaining momentum as companies have proven the benefits of eliminating management hierarchy and increasing employee empowerment. Some HR thought leaders believe the evolution of organizational design lies in moving from 'command & control' to a paradigm of self-management, yet HR practitioners have practical questions to answer:

What are the benefits and business case?
What kind of leadership and culture need to be in place?
What are the risks challenges and issues to consider?
Where do you start and what does HR do?
It’s not possible for most organizations to simply eliminate managers in one fell swoop but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t start increasing empowerment and reap the benefits of increased engagement productivity and innovation. In this session you’ll learn from a practitioner of self-management in a company of 400 employees that eliminated “bosses” and reached new heights of employee engagement and business performance. See the actual “operating system” that is used to replace managerial authority.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand ‘Teal’ self-management as an organizational paradigm
  • Learn the data-driven arguments for increasing empowerment
  • Common myths and misconceptions of self-management and learn best practices
