Are you guilty of stifling firm and staff growth? 

"Command and Control" is how business management used to work. It assumes people can’t manage themselves. What we know now is that, of course, people can effectively manage themselves when they’re working within a supportive system. 

Join Mark Goodale to learn how you can create a robust management system that fosters responsible autonomy – one where you can direct staff without giving orders – and get stuff done. You’ll also learn:

  • What command and control is, why it stifles growth of individuals and organizations, and where you might be guilty of it yourself
  • How to cultivate “responsible autonomy” in your firm
  • What it takes to build a system inside of which people can manage themselves
