This week, I speak with Philippa Kindon & Taryn Burden, representing the UK software development company Mayden. Philippa and Taryn share Mayden’s genuinely pioneering culture. Mayden has taken self-management from the software team and applied it to the whole company.

Philippa and Taryn absolutely give the lie to the belief that removing formal hierarchy inevitably leads to chaos. In fact, it’s given them an outstanding culture.

We talk:

  • A coach for everyone
  • Personal growth, not promotion
  • Building culture bottom up
