So what’s this “Teal” Organizations thing?


Published on

This talk is inspired by work of Frederic Laloux.

We look at how Teal Organization looks like –

The Teal paradigm refers to the next stage I the evolution of human consciousness. When applied to  organization, this paradigm views the organization as an independent force with its own purpose, and not  merely as a vehicle for achieving management’s objectives.

And the journey to become Teal Organization –

There are many principles that come into play when we know what we are starting with. Knowing the colour make-up of a team helps us to see who would embody the qualities of the next stage in such a way to be the most capable change leader.

Knowing the Values we are presenting to about possible changes, helps us craft messages that are most effective for the audiences concerned.

And above all, it’s a continuous cycle of learning in which everyone is involved, a constant evolution toward maturing to teal.
