Emerging Future of Organizations, Communities and Humanity!


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.

Focus on CAPACITIES
= uniqueness + limitations
of self, team, company & extended enterprise to enable
collaboration, co-design and co-creation

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)

 without-the-box

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.

The Transition Narrative – It’s an exciting world we are living in!


From Money & Life interview with evolution biologist and futurist Elisabet Sahtouris

 

“Why do you stay in your prison, while the door is so wide open!” – Elisabet Sahtouris

We are living in a huge choice era!

Think global, act local – glocal approach!

 

In her unique approach, called “Living Systems Design,” she applies the principles of biology and evolution to organizational development so that organizations may become more functional, healthy living systems, with increased resilience, stability, and cooperation. She wrote “Earth Dance: Living Systems in Evolution.”

 

Ecology and Economy are both household terms (Greek roots), where as economy relates to the rules of the household and ecology relates to the organization of the household. Therefore they should never be separated as they should go hand in hand.

 

Nature has millions of years of experience of its closed loop ecosystem. Our economics has to be adapted to that valuable non-waste, learning from the science of nature.

 

Elisabet demonstrates clearly how economics and financial systems can equally balance as would nature and our own body balance its evolution through constant cooperation and collaboration, sometimes competition. However that competition turns into negotiation, turning competition in friendly creativity.

 

Taking people and nations to the level of cooperation and collaboration is our true task in human evolution.

The internet is the largest living entity – not of a combination of computers, but of people driving the content and the collaborative dialogue and knowledge sharing.

The transition to a mature collaborative society is happening like the transformation from caterpillar to butterfly, into a total new society, going through a harsh transition (crisises and chaos).

 

This transition is essential, though frightening, we have the capacity to transform. Humanity will get through that evolution becoming more and more cooperative and create a new human society with different approaches to economics.

 

There is a lot of work, starting with unlearning and learning new ways of how we live, work and consume. Mainly the Western world needs to adapt, away from our developed mis-values and lacking education about resilience building and creativity during crisis and chaos.

 

Each individual has to take their responsibility up and act within that transition narrative, rolling-up your sleeves and engaging with local communities and making more use of arriving advanced technologies.

We can also learn from inventive ancient ways of how to withstand the impossible!

Even our democracy system should go back to its roots: for example choosing leaders through wisdom.

We have to create economics that serve the well-being of all people and creatures on earth, through being more pro-active and adjust our education system.

We need to go to a gifted economy using gifted currency, in which we value each other and our gifts we offer in building the new phase in humanity. We are building it but we are limited because we still deal with the debt-based economy. This is part of the Transition Narrative, but it is up to the new generations to fasten the process, using their new ways of doing things through the experience we are building today in the new socio-economic models.

 

Money and life by Katie Teague

 

We can make the Transition Narrative happen through building an economy based on motivation and our capacities, not on debt! A community owned economy based on relationships – a living system!
