In 2003, media companies and newspapers were in free fall, when American newspapers earned only a tiny percentage of revenue from digital. The Deseret News and Deseret Digital Media were the envy of others, with more than 50 percent of the organization’s combined net income coming from digital sources.

One thing we must keep in mind is that neurosignatures shouldn’t be thought of as static.

While the mechanistic work mindset has spurred huge growth and riches for many, it’s an approach that has masked a fundamental truth: Rather than a machine, organizations are living, dynamic systems that can’t be programmed. Instead, they thrive through relationships, adaptive structures, diverse networks of people, the spaces they occupy, the tools they use – and so, so much more.
