What is holacracy? The management approach tested by Google and Zappos. — Quartz at Work

Working within a holacracy feels unnatural, compared to the way most companies are run. It involves forgoing one’s job title, taking complete ownership of one’s career development, and engaging with all colleagues as equals—transcending what Robertson views as outdated paradigms of power. Indeed, holacracy is designed to completely upend traditional hierarchy and replace it with a new structure that decentralizes power, essentially making everyone a CEO.

There's a lot to unpack here.
"unnatural" - as if the capital-management-labor hierarchy is found in biomes and geologic strata.
"forgoing [a] job title" - Which is often literal nonsense to begin with.
"making everyone a ceo" - which is basically the antithesis of what the CEO's role is.
