The No Limits Enterprise
with Doug Kirkpatrick
on the Inspirational Insights Podcast
Doug Kirkpatrick is the author of The No-Limits Enterprise and has been working in self-management since the beginning of Morning Star. I spoke to him on this episode of the Inspirational Insights Podcast to learn what kinds of practices work equally well in traditional and self-managed companies along with the personal competencies needed.
Companies are exploring better ways of working on getting around the slow speed of centralized decision-making and the high cost of layers that impede effective communication vertically. Self-management is one alternative and not just because the approach treats people like high-value humans. Self-management practices embed responsibility and commitment to every aspect of getting things done.
In this episode, we talk about:
- free will
- commitment and responsibility
- use of power
- moving from assumptions to explicit agreements

Love to hear your feedback. Take a look at From Hierarchy to High Performance, a book I co-authored with Doug and five other members of the Great Work Cultures community.
