Building the For-Purpose Enterprise
Facilitated by Tom Thomison & Christiane Seuhs-Schoeller - encode.org llc
May 18 th, 2017 in Seattle | Impact Hub Seattle | 9 am - 5 pm
Is your organization feeling the drag of traditional employment structures? Are you looking for viable alternatives to rigid, outdated models of compensation and equity? Do you want to liberate personal and organizational purpose in your workplace?
The For-Purpose Enterprise is a daring new approach to structuring your venture. It is not designed for business as usual. Through many years of launching and experimenting with self-organization models such as Holacracy®, proven methods have emerged to further encode and support the global movement towards purpose-driven work and decentralization of power.
Do you dream of a workplace that integrates intrinsic motivations and extrinsic rewards for everyone, not just a privileged class? Are you still granting autonomy from a power position or are you encoding it legally as an anchor for the whole enterprise? It is time to evolve the Legal, Financial, and Social foundations of business. The goal here is to sustainably distribute authority and ownership in any purpose-driven entity interested in doing so.
This workshop will dive into an introduction of the For-Purpose Enterprise as a comprehensive model for the new Legal, Financial, and Social templates needed to thoroughly distribute authority and encode self-organization in all of the contexts of an enterprise.
Join us in Seattle, as Tom Thomison and Christiane Seuhs-Schoeller provide insights on how to bootstrap a cohesive For-Purpose Enterprise from scratch, or how to transition your existing organization to become a For-Purpose Enterprise with clear Legal, Financial, and Social agreements.
This workshop is designed to give you a sense of what using the For-Purpose Enterprise templates might feel like in your current organization, using facilitated discussions, multiple simulations, and opportunities for in-depth Q&A.
