I have, since then, made it my mission to explore what are effectively "non-crypto DAOs", and to help people who wish to transform their organisations according to Teal Principles - self-management, wholeness and evolutionary purpose. I have even started a new project called The Masterhearting Club (like masterminding but using the heart, not just the mind, to guide - I call it the support network for heart-centred entrepreneurs and leaders).
You have given me another piece to my puzzle, Phil, and another change in terminology.
One may say that names are not important, but we imbue words with energy and meaning which can totally transform our behaviour. NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) has shown the power of words and the mental maps on which they appear. This is key to my mission - by transforming your words and language, you can transform your life.
The word "company" originally meant a group of people (well, from the Latin "con", meaning with and "panis", bread, so people who you eat bread with) so had a human context, albeit a military one (a company of soldiers), but, like so many words, has been tainted by the dehumanising effect of industrial revolution-age "modern" thinking (think "we run a well-oiled machine here").
Plus, I am not just talking about "for profit" organisations. In fact I want to eliminate the distinction. Every enterprise should be about benefiting people and the planet, not the pursuit of profit, but every endeavour also needs a surplus of income over expenses in order to be sustainable.
Ok, so this is not exactly a reply, more of a "response". But in French it's pretty much the same so I'm sure Basile will approve!
