Are you ready to reinvent your organization?
Join the conversation as we discuss Aaron Dignan's book: Brave New Work

About the book
Brave New Work reveals a proven approach for eliminating red tape, dissolving bureaucracy, and doing the best work of your life.
Dignan found that nearly everyone, from Wall Street to Silicon Valley, points to the same frustrations: lack of trust, bottlenecks in decision making, siloed functions and teams, meeting and email overload, tiresome budgeting, short-term thinking, and more.
Is there any hope for a solution? Haven’t countless business gurus promised the answer, yet changed almost nothing about the way we work?
That’s because we fail to recognize that organizations aren’t machines to be predicted and controlled. They’re complex human systems full of potential waiting to be released.
Our Facilitators -
Kathryn Maloney, Founding Partner, The Ready
A partner of the org design firm The Ready, Kathryn helps global leaders recast their organizations’ operating systems to work with more meaningful and responsive designs. She holds dear the truth that at the foundation of any organization’s operating system are resilient and deeply creative humans — who co-exist with one another in the complexity of their individual mindsets. To shift to new ways of working, undertake fundamental systems change, and enact that change, groups of people need to behave into new ways of being, organizing, meeting, and thinking that disrupt the patterns, narratives, and habits built up and preventing flow in the system. Since 1998, She has advised, coached, and consulted to countless leaders, teams, and organizations often working in the largest existing bureaucracies to initiate and support change efforts. Her client organizations include Boeing, Boston Consulting Group, General Electric, Edelman, Kaplan Test Prep, Federal Trade Commission, IRS, Securities and Exchange Commission, and Health and Human Services.
