Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Many of us dream of dumping abusive corporate hierarchies in favor of a more humane organization that is creative, efficient, and egalitarian. But flattening your org chart doesn't remove politics and create empowered individuals, it adds politics and creates ineffective-committee hell. I will remind you that you have already solved this problem in your everyday life, and that your everyday answer might save your company from mediocrity and failure.

WeWork provides entrepreneurs and small businesses with workspace, personalized support, business services, meaningful benefits, digital tools, and the flexibility they need to succeed. Our South Lake Union location will be providing lunch for all registered attendees.
