Why We Are Here
I am certain we can build a better world. I think in the biology of our existence, starting as single cells, and growing bigger than the sum of the parts when we get together with a common goal. This process starts with our individuality and grows into families, groups, communities.
Work is just another of these facets of life’s evolution. It is simply another expression of humanity coming together to achieve monumental goals that would be impossible to do individually. Humanity is the fractal of organism that is the fractal of organ that is the fractal of cell. When we get together as a collection of humans in a company, we work towards a goal, we create a community. This is what cells do in our system. Each system is a subsystem of the higher level.
We got to a break point now. We are flexing and changing as we realise that we need to undertake profound change if we really mean to survive. This is: we got it all wrong with the way we organise in commercial communities. What is the problem? Hierarchies of control and authority. As soon as we remove the layers of control which exist because we built our commercial systems based in DISTRUST, and instead we give space to self organising communities that create hierarchies of knowledge and contribution (the one that contributes the most is most involved in the layers of network). When we let self organisation emerge, something beautiful happens: the system finds it’s way through establishing all the functions that are needed for it to achieve it’s purpose. And by the way the humans that are part of this system feel they’ve achieved something incredible too.
My purpose is to help organisations (commercial and otherwise) discover the power of their people when working in unison.
Discover how each individual, when in a real, deep, committed unity with others can achieve outstanding results, by themselves and better still, being part of a team. Their efforts and abilities are amplified beyond their own expectations when they truthfully achieve a sense of community.
I consult and coach in Agile Transformation, Scrum and Behavioural change; helping organisations and teams take the leap from a manufacturing management thinking to a knowledge based empowered workforce.
And yes, we do this through play a good part of the time – Play that engages and unlocks human learning by disruption.
About Sofia Woloschin
I am an Agile Coach and ScrumMaster with deep interest in human relationships and behavioral theory. I set up, train, coach and serve teams that deliver software applications and business transformation, provide coaching and process implementation.
I also research and study Psychology and Sociology, in an attempt to equip myself with more tools to better lead teams to high performance.
Having started my Agile journey 5 years ago, I am learning and growing and experiencing this people-centered approach to doing business that only brings me joy and hope that a better world is possible. I am convinced that we all have a duty of care towards our future and we must do something from wherever we are to help reshape the sake of humanity. I feel that I can do this from my tiny place as a change agent; helping people and organisations become Agile.
