Duration: 4 hours 42 minutes
Holacracy distributes authority and decision-making throughout an organization and defines people not by hierarchy and titles, but by roles. Holacracy creates organizations that are fast, agile, and that succeed by pursuing their purpose, free from the tyranny of top-down planning that's instantly out of date.
This isn't anarchy – it's quite the opposite. When you start to follow Holacracy, you learn to create new structures and ways of making decisions that empower the people who know the most about the work your company does: your frontline colleagues.
Some of the many champions of Holacracy include Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos.com (and author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Delivering Happiness), Evan Williams (co-founder of Blogger, Twitter, and Medium), and David Allen.
