What happens when we toss out tired org charts and opt instead for decentralized models?
Leaders aren’t always bosses. Bosses aren’t always leaders. And hierarchy has its flaws.
More organizations and leaders are beginning to see the benefits of delayering traditional power structures that prevent cultures of collaboration.
But collaboration is also messy. Flat power-sharing is messy. Trust is scarce. What happens when we toss out tired org charts and opt instead for decentralized models? Does shared leadership work, or is it purely fantasy? How do you set boundaries and hold your power—setting yourself up for long-term success? And what is long-term today?
Join Pollen on June 7 to hear from those who are navigating this new way of doing business and have emerged from collaborative work environments relatively unscathed. They’ll share their insights about what works and what doesn’t, how to navigate the power dynamics at play, what obstacles you can expect along the way, and how to handle it all #LikeABoss.
