When we disorganize our company, we are often noodling on small ideas and unobtrusive experiments. We want to fail forward without worry, and we join the dots as we go.
However, it cannot be simply a random, scattergun set of actions. We need some unifying theme around which we orient and through which we tell a great institutional story – for others to say “Yes!” to us.
My themes are around community and culture, about activating individuals for more, to scale the organizational whole.
In that thematic pursuit, I seek to connect everything. I am joining the dots. Those individual actions and experiments add up to something greater than the sum of the parts.
At the same time, I practice a form of organizational spirituality. I believe that everything is connected. We are in service of something bigger than the individual tasks.
Working from small to large, large to small gives the disorganizer flexibility and scope.
