Reimagine Work is a 1-day event (London, Friday 5 October) dedicated to holding up a mirror to the corporate world and to ourselves as organisational disrupters, disentanglers and change agents. There is a mix of interactive workshops, talks, dialogues, and even art experiences. This wonderful community explores during the day through interactions aimed at sowing seeds, nurturing ourselves, and enabling a new way of being.

Sarah and Ali are delighted to be participating in the event as co-learners and facilitators. We are offering a session to explore what it takes to operate in a ‘Teal‘ way. Knowing that the new ideas & tools for conscious business can be hindered by hidden beliefs that still operate in us, we recognise that the true work is about depth change = you can’t really ‘put new software onto an old operating system’! So our session will explore with a live case example what it takes to embody and create from a very different worldview…

Making Teal real

The Teal Exchange, 1-day event, 3 March 2017, London EC1.

The term ‘Teal’ to describe the corporation as a living organism was proposed by Frederic Laloux in his book, Reinventing Organizations. The color teal, along with its living organism metaphor, is seen as the next phase of organisational evolution.

This concept of an organisation as a living entity, with its aspirations of self-management, wholeness and emergent pupose has captured the mind of many corporate leaders, coaches and advisors. Indeed, many Teal-focused forums are springing up around the world, where business leaders and consultants get together to share experiences and create a better tomorrow. They are asking…

In our current climate, how does this concept become a reality?

One challenge is that the business world does not have the artifacts or language needed for such a paradigmatic shift. Many believe that the models and inspiration we seek lie not in the business space, but rather on the periphery, perhaps in unexpected disciplines and concepts, places we less often explore.

In this spirit of exploration, Agile consultant and ‘untangler’ Tobias Mayer has created a 1-day event. The Teal Exchange invites business leaders, workers and consultants into dialog with, for example, artists, poets, theologists, biologists, musicians, psychotherapists, life coaches and organisational change agents. Alison Wooding, co-founder of GenerativeWork.Space, is one of the guest speaker/facilitators on the day.

If you would like to explore the promise of Teal, come along on 3 March, London EC1 (9am-5pm). Full details can be found here on Eventbrite.
