Providing platforms for each other
If we are truly to frame management and organizing as a two-way street, it is important to provide platforms for each other. Co-creating sounds desirable and preferable, but it is more complex to manage since it relies on each other’s agency and the belief that we share a common goal.
Good faith and trust make such platforms work. No matter how difficult this may be, the upside is that providing platforms for each other can lead to creating multiple forms of value that is truly greater than the sum of an organization’s parts.
Matthew 13:54-58. And he did not work many mighty deeds there because of their lack of faith.
