Consider a flock of birds: They are all flying in the same direction in perfect unison although no one leaders guides the flock or prescribes the direction. That’s how self-managing companies work. Holacracy, for example, is a method of decentralized management that replaces hierarchy with self-organizing teams who agree on a path forward. Similarly, in Teal organizations, individuals can make crucial decisions as long as they ask those in the know for relevant advice – and heed it. Tell that to the birds.
