November 13 - Starfish Leadership Workshop

6:00pm-7:30pm - 1086 Armstrong Student Center

A starfish is an organism without a central brain or any other cerebral hierarchy; each arm of the starfish can function independently. A spider, on the other hand, is fully dependent on its head for basic survival. Thus, when the spider’s head is cut off, it dies, but when an arm is cut off a starfish, not only does it survive, but it grows an entirely new arm. What applies in biology also applies in the business world. The distributed structures of starfish organizations allow them to function independently of a central head. Their regenerative abilities make them more nimble in reacting to external forces. Seeding starfish networks inside large, hierarchical organizations give them the ability to be agile while still maintaining the necessary accountability to be effective.
