By Frederic Laloux and originally published here at thejourney.reinventingorganizations.com This video is about what might look like a point of detail… but a revealing one!

By Doug Breitbart and originally published on medium.com I was having a catch-up conversation with a friend of many years. As long as I have known him, he has had the super-ability to attract and gather people of like interests and talents together, in groups, without projection or agenda, to explore and create together. I suspect all who serve in the organizational change or organizational development business, whether in-house, coach, or a consultant, have at one time or another joined such a gathering. He shared with me a story about his most recent project. There was initial enthusiasm of all …

By Frederic Laloux and originally published here at thejourney.reinventingorganizations.com Often we simply wrap nice sounding words around the products and services we offer… and ta-da, there is our purpose. Most likely, though, this is simply a “fake” purpose. Remember: purpose is not something we design or declare, it’s a voice that whispers if we know how to listen, and it calls us to a better future. It’s time we stop the BS and face the fact that so much of what organizations do is destructive and that a true purpose is antithetical to continued destruction. In this video, I offer a simple …

By Christiane Seuhs-Schoeller and as a single article originally published at christianesplace.com This is Part Two of a two-part article. Part One is here. What then do we do about power? In every social system, we find power in interpersonal dynamics. Power (as such) is neither good nor bad, but it needs to be made explicit through open communication and clear agreements. Groups need safe spaces where these communications can take place to create the necessary agreements. The concepts of the For-Purpose Enterprise and the Symbiotic Enterprise both define a clear People Context. This enables the differentiation of organizational and …
