What does leadership look like in a company with no bosses? How do you develop a culture that allows self-managing organisations to thrive? What mindset and relational shifts are required?

In their new book Moose Heads on the Table: Stories about self-managing organisations from Sweden, authors Karin Tenelius and Lisa Gill share stories and insights from nearly twenty years of coaching teams and organisations to become self-managing.

Rather than looking at complicated self-management frameworks and models, these pages reveal a perspective of organisational transformation based on the simple but powerful premise of facilitating different kinds of dialogues. At the core of this book are warts-and-all stories, insights, and lessons about a number of small Swedish companies across different sectors that Karin Tenelius helped transform, both as an owner and as a consultant or interim CEO. The purpose is to inspire and embolden readers to start their own experiments, creating more human and collaborative teams and organisations.

“Truly love this book. It fills an important gap in self-management literature. It has a strong focus on coaching towards self-management and less on structures and processes. Very powerful perspective!”
Pim de Morree, co-founder of Corporate Rebels

  • “I'm SO interested in self-managed teams that it would take a very special book to get me excited all over again about something I've been into for over 10 years.Mooseheads on the Table is that book. Why? Clear and crisp case studies that show you the brutal and beautiful reality of self-management. Balanced, practical AND philosophical is not an easy balance to strike about any subject, let alone something as alternative as turning enterprises into bottom-up organisations. This mix is where the true value in this book lies. Devoid of hype; clear of cliche and vividly believable.If I'm a doubtful colleague or CEO, I'd see this book as a chance to remove that doubt and reboot my organisation to install a new operating system and hive mind and enriched soul.To bring all our rational adulting to play and remove our hostile teenage angst. The research alongside the stories makes for the perfect pracademic book - underpinned and stimulating for practitioners and academics alike.I expect this book to be referenced like Frederic Laloux's work is. And before we know it, Sweden's greatest exports aren't Ikea or Abba, but self-management and Mooseheads on tables.”
