Less hustle. More authenticity.

Less strategy. More purpose.

Less hours. More efficiency.

Less outcomes. More experiments.

Less secrets. More transparency.

Less instructions. More understanding.

Less happy. More whole.

Less fear. More inquiry.

Less politics. More productivity.

Less culture fit. More conscious conflict.

Less people performance metrics. More vulnerability.

Less diversity. More inclusion.

Less us and them. More empathy.

Less management. More Leadership.
