  14. 14. Agile: necessary conditions for adopting it TOP LEADERSHIP OWNERSHIP “The founder or top leader (let’s call him the CEO for lack of a better term) must have integrated a worldview and psychological development consistent with the Teal developmental level. Several examples show that it is helpful, but not necessary, to have a critical mass of leaders operating at that stage” “Owners of the organization must also understand and embrace Evolutionary-Teal worldviews. Board members that “don’t get it,” experience shows, can temporarily give a Teal leader free rein when their methods deliver outstanding results. But when the organization hits a rough patch or faces a critical choice, owners will want to get things under control in the only way that makes sense to them―through top-down, hierarchical command and control mechanisms.”
