This public weekly review is a less scary, more gentle way for me to ease into thinking about a newsletter.

Why aligned autonomy is an ongoing struggle

Aaron Dignan shared this with theMurmur Labs team. This problem of aligned autonomy is at the root of trying to get a Startup off the ground.

Autonomy, in a workplace context, is not about β€œI can do whatever I feel like” but rather β€œI feel free to act and fully engage to achieve a greater purpose.”

I think the critical misunderstanding of autonomy isn't just "free to act and fully engage to achieve a greater purpose", it's also that I have to do it within my abilities, skills and decision rights.

I hold roles within the organization and those roles inform the way I contribute in my "freedom to act".

When I learned to focus on my role to serve the purpose, it enabled me to move the needle.
