Guest speaker

Creating a culture of autonomy

Industries are increasingly experimenting with self-managed approaches, but they’re missing the most important point: the notion that it all starts with having the right mindset.

Drawing on practical experiences, including her leadership role in teal organisation Buurtzorg, Sharda Nandram will define and explore the value of an integrative intelligent mindset. Further, she’ll demonstrate how you can adopt this mindset within your organisation to create a culture where trust, autonomy and self-management come naturally.
