Reinventing Work: Adelaide intends to explore, share, learn and practice new ways of working; ways of working that put humans front and centre of organisational life. Our purpose (written in pencil) is to make Adelaide a better place to work.
We will explore the meaning of self-management, wholeness and purpose in the workplace. We’ll aim to make Adelaide a better place to work by learning to understand and experience the practices being used by evolving organisations who have moved away from traditional, hierarchical ways of working.
In keeping with the ethos of collaboration, as hosts we aim to walk the “chaordic" path between building a frame and inviting everyone to co-create the content and the agenda.
Reinventing Work: Adelaide is for anyone interested in the future of work, self-organising teams, self-management, deliberately developmental workplace practices, wholeness at work, emergent hierarchies, participatory change, decentralised leadership, distributed authority, collaboration, new ways of working and organisation design.
If you’ve heard of 'Brave New Work' by Aaron Dignan, Frederic Laloux’s book ‘Reinventing Organisations’, the Corporate Rebels blog, or the Leadermorphosis podcast, then this is definitely for you! If you haven’t, here are some links:
Have a read/listen/browse and if the ideas sound amazing then you’ll fit right in. If you are just beginning to learn, or you already work in transformative ways, or you are somewhere in between, this group is for you. The group is inclusive of all interest and experience, to grow however we can, the number of organisations and people experiencing more purpose, autonomy and wholeness at work.
Interested in Reinventing Work? Keen to discuss new ways of working which are a better match for our increasingly VUCA world? Looking to meet some new friends with whom you can discuss the trials of trying to do knowledge work under a management system designed for a 20th century factory?
Join us for the first Reinventing Work: Adelaide Meetup in the Learning Centre (Level 1) at SA Water House!
For our first meeting we're keen to get to know you, to share why we're all interested in Reinventing Work, and to discuss how we can help each other learn more about this fascinating topic and apply what we learn to help make Adelaide a better place to work!
