Nowadays when only certain thing is constant change everyone love to talk about agile teams, flexible organisation and empowered employees but most of them fail in their companies to really put all mentioned above into force and frustration usually rise top bottom and back. Then just a quick look in the organigram confirms what you already know – they still have deep hierarchy that doesn’t allow flow, cross functions and systematic collaboration. As company are people in all meanings, and people are alive, company could be just an living organism made of living entities. Further, if company is alive, it is breathing, changing all the time, as a result of inner or outer factors. In order to survive it needs to be quick, flexible, adaptable and healthy. Also, as a living organism it is taking care more about other living organism (employees, society and planet…) understanding they are mutually dependable.

Of course, there are many more things here, but if these few lines resonate with you, you will have urge to call Ivana to discuss this topic further.
