Product Description

FROM THE BACKCOVER

The way we manage organizations seems increasingly out of date. Deep inside, we sense that more is possible. We long for soulful workplaces, for authenticity, community, passion, and purpose.

In this groundbreaking book, the author shows that every time, in the past, when humanity has shifted to a new stage of consciousness, it has achieved extraordinary breakthroughs in collaboration. A new shift in consciousness is currently underway. Could it help us invent a more soulful and purposeful way to run our businesses and nonprofits, schools and hospitals?

A few pioneers have already cracked the code and they show us, in practical detail, how it can be done. Leaders, founders, coaches, and consultants will find this work a joyful handbook, full of insights, examples, and inspiring stories.

A wonderful book.. paving the way for the future of organizations that are fit for human beings.. It contains in depth, ethnographic accounts of a dozen of diverse organizations. It is the type of book that you can refer to each of the sections of its 360 pages every while and then, depending on the need to explore the concepts and examples in more details. For those interested in organizations as a unit of study, it is a helpful book as it is practically highlighting unconventional ways of organizing, structures, practices, etc … that are fit for human beings and inline with the conscious evolution; it presents self management, beyond the top-down and bottom-up, seeking wholeness, and in continuous alignment with the evolution of the organizational purpose… It is a hopeful message for the future of organizational designs with a rich literature review and many stories.

This is the best book on leadership and organizational change I have ever read. It is very unique that the book relate the quality of the leadership of a leader or the achivement of an organization to the development of the consciousness of the leader or of the organization

This is a great boook somebody must read if he has a interest in these fields.

Reinventing organizations is one of those "this makes so much sense" books. The highlights for me are: looking at employees as whole humans who bring their lives to work, rather than a mask; investing heavily in conflict management (to enable and channel conflict rather than hide from it) and letting organizational projects and initiatives grow or die by the energy and interest of staff rather than top-down authority. This is an enlightened thinking about the human condition and our current trajectory - I see this trend emerging in different ways at different levels: interest in yoga, meditation, work-life balance, search for meaning outside of money and products, low levels of engagement, and most imporantly the sense that we have lost our communities. In answer to these, this is very positive as a path forward. There are many organizations featured in this book and the author does a good job describing the "in the field" manifestations of this philosophy. As an academic study it would be interesting to track these organizations and see how they fare over the medium to long term. One never knows which management philosophies are fads or at the very least which organizations and industries will prosper more than others using these practices. Regardless, there is so much commonsense in here that it just can't be denied and at the very least some aspects of this will apply universally to organizations. However, I would say this book and the ideas in it are about 5-10 years ahead of mainstream adoption. Thus, this is hopefully a sneak peek at the future of organizations.

Having been trained as an Integral Coach (coaching school based on the Integral Theory created by Ken Wilbur) I find this book reviting and full of hope for the future of organisations and humanity as a whole. A must read for anybody who is on a quest to bring about a new way of seeing how human beings can all be powerfull, together, while being exactly who they are, without masks or game playing. Laloux is bringing forward concrete examples of what to do to acheive this. Of course, everything starts with the worldview of the leader... as a leader, what worldview are YOU holding to let your employees, colleagues, children actualize their deep self?

Recent and extensive research on workplace cultures in the U.S. indicate that, on average, less than 30% of the employees are actively and productively engaged; the remaining 80% are either passively engaged ("mailing it in") or actively engaged in undermining the success of the given enterprise. According to Ken Wilber in the Preface, Frederic Laloux's book covers all four quadrants, at least five levels of consciousness and culture, several multiple lines or intelligences, and various types of organizational structures" of what both Wilber and Laloux view as a "new paradigm," one that poses unique perils and opportunities for individuals as well as organizations. The nature and extent of employee engagement are inextricably involved in this paradigm, one that requires a "guide to creating [or transforming] organizations inspired by the next stage of human consciousness.

These are among the dozens of business subjects and issues of special interest and value to me, also listed to indicate the scope of Laloux's coverage.
