Making Teal Real: how to reinvent organisations
Mon 24 April 2017, 09:30 – 17:00 BST
Frederic Laloux introduced us to the concept and vision of “Teal” organisations with inspiring examples of what is possible. Yet his examples are widely different – large and small, manufacture and service, new-builds and long-term conversions – each with their unique journey. So although we know the “what?” and the “why?”, what do we need to know about the “how?”
This one-day “teal” overview workshop for organisational leaders, practitioners and change agents offers experiential as well as theoretical exploration of Teal, so you can explore the following questions and more.
If your organisation aspires to “teal” and “self-organisation”, what does it take to get it there?
If you are a facilitator supporting an organisation, what do you need to know?
There are six stages of development before “teal”; what happens to “amber”, “orange” and “green”?
What are the practical steps to wholeness?
What does self-management consist of and how do you enable it?
How does an organisation loosen hierarchy to find its blend of self-organisation with effective management?
What is needed to support the change to happen? What ensures that it is self-sustaining?
Benefits of attending
Gain unique perspectives of the way that organisational change happens and how to start from where you are.
Understand why Teal is not a “goal” or a “state, and how to make the previous stages contribute powerfully to organisational existence.
Deepen your personal experience of the stages and bring alive your ability to recognise them, knowing where you are “looking from”.
Build awareness of how to balance values within a stage (horizontal wholeness).
Create understanding of the value of each stage and its inclusion in the ecosystem (vertical wholeness).
Explore the significance of teams, structures, habits and processes in removing constraints to emergence and self-management.
Receive deeper knowledge of the theory that underlies the concept of “stages of human consciousness” and why / how these change.
Pre-work prior to workshop
Before attending, we ask that all participants do some pre-work to ensure that our short time together is beneficial for all.
1) Ensure you have read Frederic Laloux's book - Reinventing Organizations. Details on purchase/pay what you feel is right here
2) Familiarise yourself with the Spiral Dynamics by watching a one-hour introductory video by Jon Freeman
2) Read "The practical and spiritual wisdom of Spiral Dynamics: an interview with Dr Don Beck" by Jessica Roemischer (originally from EnlightenNext)
We hope you can join us for a day of experiential learning. Supported by well-researched social development theory we will explore both the organisational and personal experience of the journey towards “teal”.
