Video: Thea shares about BDA's evolution and Organizations as Living Organisms

In September 2015 I led a workshop at the fall gathering of the Biodynamic Association of Northern California about the Biodynamic Association's new organizational structure and management processes. This video is a 20 minute excerpt of that workshop, starting with participants' responses to the question "When was a time when you felt really alive at work?" which they discussed as pairs before sharing with the whole group. 

The book I referenced in the first part of the talk which is the ongoing inspiration for our organizational transformation is Reinventing Organizations by Frederic Laloux. The system for structuring self-organization that we have adopted many aspects of is Holacracy.

Participants asked lots of great questions during the workshop which greatly enlived our conversation. What questions do you have?
