“Why Self-Organizing is So Hard” by @bud_caddell

Original Tweet:

Everything you already understand about working in teams is reinvented with confusing language (e.g. circles, tensions, IDM, etc.) and a confusing process.  When we coach organizations, we start by putting the elements in place which foster self-management (including better talent, ways to measure teams, aligned metrics for all teams, a way to capture what the team is doing, etc.) and then move on to self-organization. 
In terms of Holacracy or GlassFrog, that means we start with training team Tactical meetings (very akin to Agile) but we do not introduce Governance until we feel like the management layers of a firm are capable and ready to let go of how teams are formed and structured. We’ve found that this phasing is absolutely critical to our success rate in helping organizations adopt new practices.

Elon Musk: living off a dollar a day as a teenager convinced him he could do anything he wanted with his life
It gave him the assurance that he didn't need a comfortable salary to survive, allowing him the freedom to pursue his loftier goals, he says.
