  4. 4. … and a quick quote “… This is a world that knows how to organize itself without command and control or charisma. Everywhere, life self-organizes as networks of interdependent relationships. When individuals discover a common interest or passion, they organize themselves and figure out how to make things happen. Self-organizing evokes creativity and results, creating strong, adaptive systems. Surprising new strengths and capacities emerge from new relationships…” Leadership of Self-Organized Networks; Lessons from the War on Terror Wheatley, Margaret J. Performance Improvement Quarterly, 20(2) pp.59-66
