Gore, Automattic) •Self Management •Wholeness •evolutionary Purpose Network
  5. 5. Teal Organizations 1.Self-management No one is the boss of anyone else. Because hierarchical organizations are not powerful enough to face the complexity, economy, anymore. Rather than a power hierarchy teal organizations work like a natural network Advice Process: One has to get advice from an expert. One has to talk to people who will be affected by the decision 2.Wholeness In most organizations we are pushed to wear a mask. We are so used to wearing it, that we almost forgot about it. We are showing our Ego (only the rational part of it), but not our deeper feelings. Teal organizations are integrating different views and different opinions, because the truth has more facets than just one. 1.Evolutionary Purpose If you take purpose seriously, there is no competition. Because every organization aiming for the same purpose is an ally. If a company vision is aligned with the strategy – and when it’s continuously adapted it becomes stronger and stronger. Purpose is finding a companies why and can’t be simply executed. Execution only works when you think about your company as a machine like in orange organizations.
