Reinventing / Teal Organisations
The Kairos Project is delighted to offer an experiential workshop on the principles outlined in Frederick Laloux’s book Re-Inventing Organisations. During 2019, we held 3 workshop in London and 1 in Brussels.
The idea is to bring alive the main tenet of the book – that organisations change as human consciousness evolves. This concept is not new. It is part of a body of work known as Spiral Dynamics.
What is new is the documentation and understanding of a whole new group of organisations that defy the normal hierarchy paradigm and live three common principles. These organisations are:
- Self Organising,
- Striving for Wholeness with respect and
- Understanding their Evolutionary Purpose
In Spiral Dynamics, these are known as Teal Organisations.
THE REINVENTING WORKSHOP
This is a dynamic workshop that allows us to experience 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 activities, live music, self-observation and co-learning.
- Spiral Dynamic’s distinctions
- Dynamics to replicate in different contexts
- Summary of the model and exploration questions at different levels of intervention (people/organisations)
THIS WORKSHOP IS FOR:
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.
‘Powerful and thought provoking.
A great day with a fantastic unit of people.
Very well facilitated.’
It was thought-provoking and a visceral
experience! It was really impressive to
see the collective energy of the people in the room ’
Chief Of Staff EMEA, Discovery
“Fantastic, the steps and physical / feeling
process you go through is special“
VP People and Culture, Discovery
‘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’
“Once in a while, you owe it to yourself to
stop, breathe, reflect on what you’re doing
and 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.“

‘Life-affirming, thought-provoking and
challenging. If you work in or with an organisation: do it.’
Policy Manager, Blagrave Trust
ABOUT THE BOOK AND ITS AUTHOR
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.
