Presentation: Building Blocks of the PowerShift Economy
Our economic systems have outlived their usefulness and are taking their toll on people and planet. Humanity’s consciousness is evolving – a deep yearning for collaboration calls for a shift from “power over” to “power with”, for being powerful together in service of the greater whole.
But what is that power shift? And which role does the economy play in all this?
Learn which 3 foundational building blocks – when put together – form a broader, power shifted economy:
Power shifted legal and capital structures: moving from subservient entitlement as an employee to earning a living through ownership and the investment of energy, time and talent in purposes people are aligned with and care about.
Power shifted organizational structures: organizing purpose-oriented work with distributed authority and dynamic steering; holarchic, autonomous and transparent.
Power shifted people structures: encouraging and supporting independent agents of purpose to find and engage with purposes they care about and catalyzing the economies of scale with the groups of purpose agents’ purchasing power for social benefits, insurance and investment programs, training programs and much more.
