Did you know that…?

Fungi and plants began to establish symbiotic relationships much earlier than we thought, taking a key role in the evolution of terrestrial life. Organisms that paired with fungi survived extinctions, and those that did not, died out.

Fungi decompose organic matter and return those nutrients to the life cycle, creating new flora and fauna, through a system of fungal networks that communicate with the ecosystem.

Below the ground lies the major part of the fungus, the mycelium, composed of long branching filaments that communicate with each other. The mycelium is nature’s web of connections, a tangle of branching filaments that connect forests around the world through mycorrhizae. They form huge subterranean connections all over the world, functioning like the neural networks of our brains.

It has the same network design as the Internet: trees communicate through the mycelium as an intercommunication channel and use it to share information and nutrients with each other, warn other trees of potential pests and protect them.

To understand how an organization works, we need to understand how the interconnections between the components of the company work. We need to understand an organization as a place where people develop, communicate, establish relationships and where they contribute value, in the form of an organic system.

We need organizations to be more transversal and collaborative… Let’s dismantle the silos! This is the only way we can lead the New Ultra VUCA Era.
