When fast-scaling startups and global organizations get stuck, they call our guest in hour two, Aaron Dignan.
In his recently released book, Brave New Work: Are You Ready to Reinvent Your Organization?, he reveals his proven approach for eliminating red tape, dissolving bureaucracy, and doing the best work of your life.
He’s found that nearly everyone, from Wall Street to Silicon Valley, points to the same frustrations: lack of trust, bottlenecks in decision making, siloed functions and teams, meeting and email overload, tiresome budgeting, short-term thinking, and more.
Is there any hope for a solution? Haven’t countless business gurus promised the answer, yet changed almost nothing about the way we work?
That’s because we fail to recognize that organizations aren’t machines to be predicted and controlled. They’re complex human systems full of potential waiting to be released.
Dignan says you can’t fix a team, department, or organization by tinkering around the edges. Over the years, he has helped his clients completely reinvent their operating systems, the fundamental principles and practices that shape their culture, with extraordinary success.
In Brave New Work you’ll learn exactly how organizations are inventing a smarter, healthier, and more effective way to work. Not through top down mandates, but through a groundswell of autonomy, trust, and transparency.
