“As One: Individual action collective power”
Every day, millions of people around the world collaborate. We join, share, and cooperate with others from different countries and backgrounds, across organizations and industries. While some collaborations may be unintentional, others are quite deliberate. Some succeed; others fall short of their goals. The study of collaboration may be about working together, but it isn’t necessarily about working as one.
Adding the phrase “as one” to another word changes its entire meaning, presenting an opportunity to turn individual action to collective power. But how many ways are there to work as one? The As One project has used advanced data analytic techniques to discover eight different models of collective leadership. The new language goes well beyond the popular dichotomy between command-and-control versus collaborative.
In his talk, Mehrdad Baghai, who has co-authored As One with Deloitte Global CEO Jim Quigley, will share intro due this new language for collective leadership and announce a new project to collect 10,000 examples of effective collective behavior.
Mehrdad Baghai is coauthor of AS ONE: Individual Power, Collective Action. He is Managing Director of Alchemy Growth Partners. He has been a strategic adviser to leaders of large organizations for more than 20 years. He is the author of the international business bestsellers The Alchemy of Growth and The Granularity of Growth.
You can pre-order the book "As One" and get it autographed at the event!
Dinner and wine included!

About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 25 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. The annual TED Conference invites the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes. Their talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Al Gore, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani,Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. The annual TED Conference takes place in Long Beach, California, with simulcast in Palm Springs; TEDGlobal is held each year in Oxford, UK. TED's media initiatives include TED.com, where new TEDTalks are posted daily, and the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world are given the opportunity to put their wishes into action; TEDx, which offers individuals or groups a way to host local, self-organized events around the world, and the TEDFellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
