Curious about how your company can become democratic? What if you could rewrite the rules so your business was more "blu?"
Whether you're an entrepreneur building a democratic company from the ground up, a senior leader interested in developing a democratic organizational system for your business, or an employee hoping your boss will consider democratizing your workplace, it takes focus and discipline.
At its most fundamental level, organizational democracy is a way of thinking about human beings and their right to live fulfilled and self-actualized lives.
Organizational democracy is built on personal relationships, one at a time.
Long-term success in organizational democracy begins with principles, not generic practices.
Organizational democracy is a whole system practiced daily Ð not a few random actions here and there.
Senior leadership must be champions of organizational democracy first if it is going to be successful and enduring throughout the organization.
The desire to build a democratic organization must be motivated by genuine desire to make it happen.
The practice of organizational democracy will evolve as an organization evolves and matures in its practice of the principles. Organizational democracy must be understood to be a living, dynamic system - not a static, mechanistic one.
The pace of implementing organizational democracy into a workplace is an art, not a science.
Financial discipline within a company creates a healthy level of tension that holds the entire democratic system in check - and balance.
