Why we do what we do

We believe in self-organisation and people-centred leadership. We know what it takes to make it work. We’re eating our own dogfood - in the teams we lead or refuse to lead (at least in a hierarchical way), in our communities, our start-ups, our client assignments… We’ve experienced it’s not easy sometimes, but we believe it’s always worth it! So above all, we’re on a mission to change the way work works. In this quest, we’re also supporting individuals and huge corporations like Siemens. But our heart beats for start-ups.

In my work I focus on the crucial moment when start-ups start growing. The moment in which many culturally advanced startups (flexible, with no hierarchies, a clear shared purpose, and a culture in which everyone shows up as they are) start reverting more and more to the traditional default of hierarchies and regulations, once they reach 20, 50, 120 people.
Some call it the original sin of organizations - the moment when the path to the old working paradigm is being taken. Because that is still the default way of running an organization. That is what most of us know. I realized that small, focused interventions at this stage can have an incredible long-term impact on the bottom line of organizations. In terms of profits, retentions and almost all other KIPs.
