The Lateral Organization (part 3)

…In contrast, the Lateral Organization emphasizes the individual, not the role. The wellbeing of the individual is paramount: the organization works only when each member is happy.

Without a hierarchy of leaders and workers, an individual can be called upon to serve in whatever capacity is required at the time. All roles are temporary, determined by consensus. As the individual develops he / she may pursue different roles for the experience or for their growth, leave the organization, or pursue other life goals. As each person seeks to grow in the way most natural for him or her, the organization and society as a whole benefits.
