Presentation by Mark Bonchek at Conscious Capitalism 2014.
"Conscious leaders know that authority has its limits, but sometimes feel a tension between autonomy and alignment. You want to empower your people, but can't have everyone going in all different directions. Purpose and values can be too broad, while policies and procedures can be too narrow. Is there a middle way? It turns out there is an answer, and it comes from some surprising places including the Navy Seals, flocks of birds, the U.S. Constitution, and Wikipedia.
In this thought-provoking, hands-on session, learn how to create decision principles that connect to your higher purpose and put your culture into action. You will leave with practical insights for creating a more networked and collaborative organization."
