In business terms, repertoire

In business terms, what we’re doing in open space is increasing the repertoire. When you start out, you learn all about management techniques, then you add leadership, and here we move the next step to doing together. It is similar to the progression I went through from speaking to more and more participative work to, so far, getting out of the way. We don’t throw any of it away; life has it all; there is still a place for management and a place for speeches. They just aren’t as effective if you want committed action. So from this point of view helping things emerge, making way for them to emerge, is a distance, at the other end of the spectrum from, is antithetical to, selling.
