Two years ago when I talked with enthusiasm to a senior coach in China, he stared at me and, after a while, he asked me “Do you believe that this can happen in China within your life time ? ”
My dream ?
In a Chinese organization, we can work Professionally AND Happily!
The organization frees up all the energies of each of their employees : creativity, self-direction, self-organization, engagement, entrepreneurship, … towards a common vision
I remained silent for a while and then answered : “Yes, I believe so!” Since then, I haven’t stopped asking myself what I can do to realize this crazy dream in China !
To see a Chinese organization transformed into a “liberated company” need time. Because a leader is naturally perceived on the top of pyramid in Chinese paradigm. But, I still have hope, an immense hope, because when we touch the “humanity” , there is no cultural barrier, we are just human!
All the people want to be respected, to find the meaning in their work, to achieve the best-self. The Chinese millennium generation surely favorites the transformation, they need more freedom, liberty to self-express, to self-direct, and to be authentic.
In the last 5 years, in France, there are 5% of the middle & large size companies who have been in movement of “liberating company”, it’s impressive to see this fast growth, and large contamination. This tendency is created together in an eco-system: Writing book, promotion in media, training workshop, managers lead the transformation, consultant accompany the change in the companies, the employees first followers…
That’s why, at the end of 2015, I decided to contribute to build up an ecosystem propice for Liberating organization in China. I positioned myself as “Accompany Liberating leaders”.
So why do I invite you to join me for this dream?
Today, after co-translating the book “Reinventing Organization” by Frederic Laloux, the book “Freedom & Inc” of Isaac Getz & Brian M. Carney and launching the first series of seminars of “Becoming a Transformation Companion” in an cross-enterprise format, I am arriving at the evident conclusion: I can not do it alone, I need more help.
