Starfish Leadership

Plexus Institute collaborated with Ori Brafman, author of The Starfish and the Spider: The Unstoppable Power of Leaderless Organizations, to develop and offer a highly interactive and experiential programs for leaders incorporating new adaptive strategies focused on:
  • Developing and leading dynamic networked organizations
  • Integrating liberating structures and complexity practice for engagement across organizational boundaries
  • Design thinking innovation
  • Trust based collaboration
The program has already been adopted by the US Army as part of an intensive experiential training for officers with a goal of “developing individuals with the ability to exploit opportunity, continuously learn, and deal with uncertainty by empowering those with the most knowledge at the edge to act in ambiguous and complex environments. They will develop, empower, and integrate networks of peer to peer relationships by building circles and creating a learning environment across the organization.”
