In North America there’s a sense that companies will fail rather than adapt and reinvent their thinking but in Europe conversations are actively exploring how to migrate from an old limited way of working to a new wider more prosperous role in society. The transformation will take creativity and engagement at all levels. To tackle the ‘HOW” question, the EODF’s 2015 conference is being held October 2-3, 2015 in the design centre of southern Europe, Milan, in un-conference style. If you have a topic you care about, bring it to the conversation and share it.

The founder of the European Organization Design Forum, Paul Tolchinsky, and two members (Stelio Verzera and Claudia Pellicori) from the energetic organizing team from Cocoon Projects and I talked about why these conversations are important to designing  the future of work. I LOVE working with this team. So easy to converse and to collaborate. Listen in. Better yet, join us in Milan.

By the way, I featured Cocoon Projects and their ideas for Liquid Organizations in Decision Making for Dummies along with the framework they use for decision making. They offered without hesitation. That says a lot considering I approached several North American based social media companies who either didn’t get back to me (busy, I understand) or who said no. The spirit of collaboration is part of the force required to bump business  out of stagnation or circling the wagons repeatedly. Lots to learn from the Cocoon team! #leadership #innovation #change #innovators
