“If we could get organizations to change the way they’re structured from this mechanistic, efficiency mindset to this living system, diversity-honoring, evolving, and adaptive kind of system, we could solve all our problems very quickly.” - Dr. Tamsin Woolley-Barker
“If you have a strongly shared purpose and a value...people will go to work and do just fine, and it’s far more efficient, and the ants figured that out 200 million years ago, and I think that we’ve always lived that way.” - Dr. Tamsin Woolley-Barker
