Leadership for the Token and Blockchain Economy

  • Do we need leadership in the token and blockchain economy?
  • How do we define leadership in the token and blockchain economy?
  • What do these leaders do differently when compared to current traditional leadership in large centralized organizations, such as Microsoft?

“A corporation is just a set of rules, and so is software. It’s all code, and it doesn’t care about people, our priorities, or our future unless we bother to program these concerns into it.

It is therefore useful, particularly in a rapidly changing media environment, to look at corporations as they were forms of media: programs written by people at a particular moment in history in order to accomplish specific goals.” Douglas Rushkoff” –  Douglas Rushkoff

Great Minds Don’t Think Alike

“Decentralization is often linked to concepts of participation in decision-making, democracy, equality and liberty from higher authority.[35][36] Decentralization enhances the democratic voice.[28] Theorists believe that local representative authorities with actual discretionary powers are the basis of decentralization that can lead to local efficiency, equity and development.”[37] Columbia University‘s Earth Institute identified one of three major trends relating to decentralization as: “increased involvement of local jurisdictions and civil society in the management of their affairs, with new forms of participation, consultation, and partnerships.”[8]

“Decentralized governance, refers to the restructuring or reorganization of authority so that there is a system of co-responsibility.”

Don’t drum up the crew to gather wood.
Divide the work and give orders.
Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea

Rochelle Fairfield

Executive Director Human Data Commons Foundation

An experienced leadership coach and consultant, Rochelle in her role as executive director of the Human Data Commons Foundation (HDC), addresses the increasing ethical problems caused by the scaling collection of personal data. Contemporary technology enables the development of massive databases which can be utilized for research and analysis, but at present, these are mainly built without transparency or accountability. By establishing collaborations between big data companies, wellness researchers, and information security innovators, the HDC will create a scalable database with a focus on user consent and best practices in privacy and security.

Rochelle’s skill is in designing and facilitating inter-disciplinary conversations, including integral systems (she is a qualified integral coach) and holocracy.

The Future is not just Digital, it is also Regenerative

“Within an incredibly short time and space, the Internet is becoming dramatically mobile, social, video and artificially intelligent – encompassing everyone and everything, becoming ubiquitous as water, air or electricity.

In this context, it is crucial to embrace yet to humanise and transcend technology; to hone in on what makes us truly human rather than a ‘better machine’: things such as imagination and intuition, creativity, problem-solving, complex understanding, improvisation, emotions and plasticity.

We must therefore let go of the ‘machine-work’ – and most its traditional metrics, KPIs and success measurements – to truly reinvent what our jobs, work and ‘professional services’ can mean in the future.” Gerd Leonhard

What got us here today, won’t get us there tomorrow

The promise of decentralization is to move us from a “my way” or “your way” to “our way” where we were able to tap the full potential of the group (or nodes or swarm).

These goals include mitigating the limitations of bias outside conscious awareness, approaching solutions from multiple perspectives and increasing diversity of thought.

Decentralizes aims to also enable the principals of inclusivity and vitality, based on worldview that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. The theory is that it would result in superior solutions, better decision-making, processes, increased commitment to implement decisions made, or a combination of two or more of these and therefore establish a better future.
