Complexity does not necessarily have a positive connotation in today’s world. Things should be short, straightforward and simple. US-based Frederic Laloux, former Associate Partner with McKinsey & Company, thinks differently. Nature is complex, our bodies are complex and so is our world. Frederic argues: Let’s embrace complexity instead of trying to manage and control it.
It all started when Frederic struggled with the email overload and the never-ending requests for his time. By studying nature's structure, he figured: Nature is a complex and self-governed space that works well. So Frederic started to take that peacefulness in complexity and applied it to structures in our communities and companies and his own life. How it works: Be courageous, step back and grant every individual around you more freedom and space. To learn more about his unprecedented method, read Frederic’s book Reinventing Organizations. It sold more than 500,000 copies and became a huge success with decisionmakers around the world.
