This is a question and opinion to discuss. In our team we have strong theory that there is no another way to become self-menage in organizations where every employee get used to always follow directions of the bosses. And this way is use dictatorship methods to instill new habits. This methods should change behaviour first. And when everyone got used to do special rituals, follow new rules and the New Code of Conduct, then bosses will ready to think about changing mindset of people to self-management/holacratic direction.
Only through this hard and strict measures they can made their people mature for the next level.
What do you think about it? Aspecially this question addressed to practiotioners who has big operational departments (more than 200 employees) with a lot of routine job.
