Learning from Businesses

An important part of this concept of intentional paradigm shifts is that there is a great deal change organizations can learn from businesses, more in my opinion than they can learn from local governmental entities. If the following works in business then it should work for others as well.

From The Entrepreneurial Mind
While each company is very different, we encountered some common themes: These small businesses tend to let employees at all levels make key decisions, and they groom their future leaders from within. They offer generous traditional and untraditional benefits (how about a six-week sabbatical?). And they constantly hunt for new ways to improve the employee experience or engage employees.

And many share a sizable slice of their profits with employees, teaching them to read company financial statements so they grasp how their job is connected to the success of the organization.
