Life-affirming, thought-provoking and

    challenging. If you work in or with an organisation: do it.’

    Our Re-inventing Organisation workshop offers an experiential learning journey on the principles outlined in Frederick Laloux’s book Re-Inventing Organisations.

    The idea is to bring alive the main tenet of the book – that organisations change as human consciousness evolves. To do so, you will be taken through and immersed in the evolutionary stages in organisations, complemented by a powerful and entertaining self-diagnosis of people and your organisation.

    The workshop integrates the knowledge in Laloux’s book, body and movement techniques, live music, self-observation and co-learning.


    Tools included:

    • Spiral Dynamic’s distinctions
    • Dynamics to replicate in different contexts
    • Storytelling
    • Summary of the model and exploration questions at different levels of intervention (people/organisations)

    In Spiral Dynamics, these are known as Teal Organisations.


    1. get clear on how these new ways of thinking about organisations apply to your work
    2. get out of the academics of the work and into an experiential workshop that has you feel, not think, deeply about what “evolutionary purpose”, “self organising” and “wholeness” actually mean.
    3. get a vivid understanding of where you and your organisation sit in the Spiral Dynamics model
    4. come away with new ideas and next steps for your organisation.
    5. have fun

    People who are interested and inspired by the current evolution in working practices; people who want a space to further their thinking on what it means to be a teal organisation, and what it means to embrace self management , wholeness and evolutionary purpose as norm; people who understand the thinking, have read the books, get the theories but would like an experience to embolden them to take action and start making changes.

    It was thought-provoking and a visceral experience! It was really impressive to see the collective energy of the people in the room ’

    “Once in a while, you owe it to yourself to stop, breathe, reflect on what you’re doing recharge yourself and your organisation spiritually.

    This course offers precisely that. And a lot of fun! If you like the book, you will love the training because it helps you properly digest it and figure outs what’s next”

    Laura S, We Move Europe.

    A fun supportive space to explore what it feels like to really embody the different organisation types and to consider how to bring them to our own life in a practical way. Fantastic, the steps and physical / feeling process you go through is special”

    Reinventing Organizations is a book whose premise is that humanity is at a new organizational threshold and a new form of organization is emerging. There have been, according to this view, at least five different organizational paradigms in human history. Could the current organizational disenchantment be a sign that civilization is overcoming the current model and preparing for the next?

    Frederic Laloux, the author, is a Belgian consultant and coach who worked for 10 years at McKinsey & Company. Fred spent 3 years searching for organizations in the world that were working from a new paradigm according to evolutionary theory (Dynamic Spiral). The book brings to light 12 companies of different industries, cultures and sizes (over 100 and up to 40,000 employees), which are currently achieving amazing results based on self-management, fulfillment (or completeness), and a deeper sense of evolutionary purpose.

    For those of you who haven’t read the book yet, we recommend that you view this article or the video of the talk for the launch in Chile of the Spanish version, and a graphic summary of the model.
