On Friday 1st March, The Kairos Project is offering an experiential workshop on the principles outlined in Frederick Laloux’s book Re-Inventing Organisations. The workshop will be in London, the venue is still to be confirmed.
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.
Purpose & Desire
Many people have read Laloux’s book and we are hearing that many of you would like to continue your learning and re-immerse yourselves in his work and theories; the book was inspirational but what next? Our desire is that you:
- get clear on how these new ways of thinking about organisations apply to your work
- 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.
- get a vivid understanding of where you and your organisation sit in the Spiral Dynamics model
- come away with new ideas and a clear idea of what is possible for you.
- have fun
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 interested in the transformation and evolution of their organizations – entrepreneurs, businessmen, workers, consultants, public and private sector coaches, social organizations.
Reinventing Organisations Workshop 2018
‘I attended the workshop… based on the book Reinventing Organizations by Frederick Laloux and felt moved to email round this appreciation and a recommendation. I had never met any of my fellow participants, the facilitating team or Peter, and his email was the first I knew about the book, but I would definitely recommend the work of the Kairos Project to anyone struggling with organisational issues around purpose, growth and direction, and the book to anyone interested in these issues. The 5 hours was a great experience of the different ways we organise ourselves, our organisations and society as a whole and gave me some valuable lessons unique to me. I would wholeheartedly recommend the workshop, the book and the Kairos Project to members of the mailing list.’
Ben Carter, Consultant/Executive coach
‘I attended the workshop last week Friday in London and enjoyed the session. It was thought provoking and a visceral experience! It was really impressive to see the collective energy of the people in the room and I love what the Kairos project is trying to do.’
Jamie Cooke, Chief Of Staff EMEA at Discovery
“What I liked the most were the body activities to experience the treated concepts, and the music”
Juan Carlos Obrador, Coach and Consultant
”I took feedback with me to strengthen my own individual process… a concrete product of the stages… and certainly the Experiential methodology”
Macarena Gómez Gracia, Coach
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. 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.
