Unveiling a profound exploration into human-centric organizational design, MESH navigates the critical need for psychologically safe workspaces, transformative leader behaviors, and multi-dimensional change implementation. It illuminates the path to fostering regenerative cultures, facilitating information flow, nurturing trust practices, and continuous learning.

Discover the intricacies of creating psychologically safe environments and empowering leaders to embrace a model that delves deep into the essentials of human-centricity. Emphasizing regeneration and decentralized activities, MESH offers a comprehensive guide to transforming organizational ecosystems.

MESH provides a multi-dimensional framework that seamlessly integrates organizational development and culture design, tailored for a decentralized world and emerging technologies. It's an easily understandable, yet profound guide for initiating transformative change.


Key Tenets: Learn how to cultivate environments that encourage connection, open communication, risk-taking, transparency and innovation, fostering psychological safety for all team members.

Behavioral Shifts: Explore transformative leader behaviors and mindsets crucial for implementing and sustaining a human-centric model within organizations.

Multi-dimensional Approach: Navigate change by considering regeneration, information flow, trust practices, awareness, and learning across three lenses – the people, operational frameworks, and cultural contexts for the ecosystem.


MESH is perfect for professionals in organizational development, leadership development, and culture design along with Mid-level to C-Level Executives navigating the evolving decentralized landscape. Consultants specializing in organizational transformation will discover indispensable insights within these pages.

A must-read for an individual or organisation looking to innovate and evolve the way they work and collaborate in the dawn of Web3!
Bryan D. Eldridge, M.Ed

MESH is built around an open, regenerative culture, empowered by a granular, mesh structure to generate connection, visibility and trust.

To date, traditional work models have focused on centralization, vertically drawn hierarchies, and on-prem/geographic proximity-based workers. In total, these attributes simply are not well-suited for the increasingly remote and gig-based workforce of the 4th Industrial revolution that is unfolding in real-time. To effectively pivot and embrace the potential and flexibility of decentralization, organizations must address questions as they prepare to create a bespoke strategy uniquely suited to their needs.

This book addresses these various questions and more, bolstered by the authors’ collective decades of work in the open community. It will provide an exhaustive framework that is understandable – and more importantly, implementable!
