I may be a little late in responding to this as I am still catching up on
my OL posts, but I wanted to pose a question...

Isn't the idea of self-determination also an individualistic concept?
Team-determination or group-determination would seem more appropriate in
terms of connecting with the larger picture of the organization...

I would fully promote the idea of self-determination, but I just wanted to
be clear on what was being proposed above.
