Facilitating change through the Transition Narrative towards Society 3.0 (Humanity 4.0)
Transition from surviving to sustainable development, from resilience building towards a thriving world in which humanity is inspired by & lives in balance & harmony with nature.
5P’s of sustainable thrivability
People – Planet – Progress – Purpose – Passion
INSPIRE people in HARMONY with the planet
for BALANCED progress towards
building communities that THRIVE!
Facilitate transformational changes in social values, resource needs and technological advancements, in which people, their capacities and human values matter and are central to the approach.
UNlearn to RElearn
Focus on CAPACITIES
= uniqueness + limitations
of self, team, company & extended enterprise to enable
collaboration, co-design and co-creation
Inspire one – 1x = X1 – motivate many!
Learn from the changing world and share your change to the macro!
Learn how you can participate your contributive change at the micro!
We change the way we LIVE! We change the way of LIFE!
Thriving in the flow of Life! Ideas for Life! Soul of Life!
For humanity and communities
(self and your immediate environment)
From ME to WE,
from EGO to ECO,
from SILOS to COLLECTIVE CREATIVITY
Connecting the econological shift (following the sequence is essential)
- spiritual connected: connection between self and self
- social connected: connection between self and others
- ecological connected: connection between self and nature
Encouraging entrepreneurship (social, community and/or commercial)
For organizations and extended enterprise
(corporates, institutions and their stakeholders – extended enterprise)
From SHAREHOLDER to STAKEHOLDER Economics!
From GROWTH & PROFIT to PROGRESS!
Adding the 2Ps: PASSION & PURPOSE
Think, act and lead without the box!
Transforming organizations and the extended enterprise to form lattice TEAL circles and working environments, which are agile, holistic and open.
Encouraging intrapreneurship (innovation, co-creation and agility)
How to ignore the box
- apply lateral thinking techniques (TEAL – lattice circles & agile OD)
- rethink situations as opportunities
- connect the dots between creativity & innovation
- walk the positive road – Learn to dream (Ai)
- generate innovative opportunities aligned with your needs
- promote intrapreneurship | encourage entrepreneurship
Lattice or TEAL organization forms take on worn-out corporate ladder inproductivity and adopt more agile ways to engage its people, processes and ultimately the extended enterprise in which a corporation operates.
Whole Systems Transformation is a journey!
Systemic change is required at all levels of our society!
Some references in this emerging evolution
– Otto Scharmer (Theory U & Presencing Institute)
We are collectively creating results nobody wants. That’s why leadership should help people to see the whole system. It is time to change our organizations and institutions, and bust three leadership myths.
3 visible divides:
The ecological divide: we currently use 1.5 times Planet Earth; that is our ecological footprint. This is the divide between self and nature.
The social divide: 2.5 billion people live on less than $2 a day. Here we see the divide between self and other.
The spiritual-cultural divide: people are excluded, experience lack of meaning and more and more feel depressed. The divide between self and Self. Capital Self represents your highest future potential that you may develop – what you are here for on Planet Earth.
– Frederic Laloux (Reinventing Organizations)
If we define Tops, Middle, Bottoms, and Customers, not as static boxes on an org chart, but as relational spaces or contexts, then they are still very much present. People just flow and navigate between these different spaces, including within the same day. So, on one initiative I am leading it, and I am in a Top space. Another time, somebody else is leading and I am just following; I am the Bottom. And in another situation, I might be sort of the Middle, somebody else is really leading the big picture of it, but I am designing some elements; I am coordinating some stuff.
And what this brings I think, is an enormous relief for the Bottoms and the Middles, and also for the Tops! We tend to think that being Top is so great. We often underestimate the weight of the poor people at the Top of the organizations who constantly have to be Top, and can never relax into Bottom, where I can just follow. I will do my share, but I don’t need to be in a leadership position”.
Hierarchy isn’t abandoned at Teal; what is dismantled is the static form of hierarchy that is in the buttress of the org chart. The goal of self-management is not to make everyone equal, to have everyone having the same say on all the questions. It is really the opposite. It’s to have natural hierarchies, and to have lots of natural hierarchies.
