Like many B Corps, I am fascinated with the book Reinventing Organizations by Frederick Laloux. This is one the best books I have read since Good to Great.
Laoux identifies three characteristics of companies that are operating at the highest levels of organizational consciousness:

For more info on these three principles, check out this useful summary.
There are already several B Corps who are already trying to implement "self-managing"practices (i.e., no formal hierarchy or bosses) in their organizations. If you have questions about self-management, I recommend checking out this article Laloux wrote last year.
Have you read Reinventing Organizations? If so, what was your reaction?
