Uphold values and create meaningfulnes

You have no boss, but you can nev­er be­come the boss ei­ther. Great prospects or rather a night­mare? For­tu­nate­ly, the con­cept of Ho­lacra­cy is not on­ly based on this sim­ple en­trance ques­tion. How­ev­er, it rais­es fun­da­men­tal ques­tions about or­gan­i­sa­tion­al struc­tures and cor­po­rate val­ues. And puts mean­ing­ful­ness at the cen­ter of our do­ing.

If the work­forces were to be able to make their own de­ci­sions and act in­de­pen­dent­ly, a high lev­el of self-mo­ti­va­tion could be ac­ti­vat­ed. To de­fine this at­ti­tude as a part of cor­po­rate cul­ture has a lot to do with what kind val­ues ​​are rep­re­sent­ed and held up. Would you like a clas­sic top-down man­age­ment, where all de­ci­sions have to be ap­proved first, or do you ben­e­fit from ag­ile struc­tures and high self-com­pe­tence of the em­ploy­ees?

Ex­plore new ter­ri­to­ry

There are de­ci­sive ad­van­tages if you break out of tra­di­tion­al hi­er­ar­chy and de­vel­op your com­pa­nies in­to net­work or­ga­ni­za­tions: in the com­plex, rapid­ly chang­ing eco­nom­ic en­vi­ron­ments in which we live and work in, it is cru­cial to re­main ag­ile. When de­ci­sions are as close as pos­si­ble to ex­ec­u­tives, process­es short­en and im­prove ef­fi­cien­cy. And ef­fi­ca­cy.

How to be mean­ing­ful

Hold­ing up the val­ue of giv­ing em­ploy­ees high de­ci­sion-mak­ing com­pe­tences is a mean­ing­ful thing, be­cause it shows the sense and pur­pose of be­ing part of a larg­er whole that pur­sues a high­er com­mon goal. In this way, each in­di­vid­ual is mo­ti­vat­ed to act en­tre­pre­neuri­al­ly, to be cre­ative and to par­tic­i­pate ac­tive­ly.

A tool­box for man­age­ment

Ho­lacra­cy choos­es an evo­lu­tion­ary ap­proach to cor­po­rate de­vel­op­ment. The con­cept does not have a hi­er­ar­chi­cal man­age­ment struc­ture. In­stead, a com­pa­ny has an agreed up­on mis­sion state­ment and a cor­po­rate pur­pose that goes be­yond mak­ing prof­it. Di­vi­sions be­come cir­cles, and the em­ploy­ees per­form roles with as­signed tasks. Any­one who per­forms a process may al­so de­ter­mine its struc­ture. It is a tool­box to in­tro­duce an evo­lu­tion­ary man­age­ment con­cept.
