Media is showing us that self-managing organizations, like Zappos, unleash human potential in ways we couldn't have imagined, but so often when we try to transition to a self-managed organization, we become overwhelmed, get stuck in deeply entrenched habits, or try to change everything at the same time and fail, and give up. The author and founder of Percolab, an international consulting firm in Quebec, has been helping organizations successfully transition to self-management for over a decade. With seven concrete practices, she offers a new approach: transition one thing in your organization at a time. The benefits of a self- managed organization - increased engagement, retention, and productivity - can be achieved even by transitioning only one or two areas of your organization. Even if you never become Zappos, your organization will see increased energy and thriving.
