When we hear about this whole “self managing teams” thing, it can be easy to get a bit “triggered” by it. We all have a lot of conditioning to think about people in a Theory X kind of way, so thoughts can quickly pop into our minds like: “That would be anarchy!” or “Nothing would get done!”
But if we flip the way we look at this, I think it feels entirely different.
