Join George Pór, – Wednesday, 10 June, 2105, Montreal – a leading practitioner in the work of creating high performing organizations. He is making a rare visit to Montréal, from Europe, where he is working with the Future Considerations team and with Frederic Laloux / Reinventing Organizations, the author of Reinventing Organizations, on developing an organizational prototyping workshop based on the book, which they will open source.
Recent research (Reinventing Organizations, by Frederic Laloux, 2014) shows: organizations that achieve three breakthroughs are changing the game of “strategic advantage”. Those breakthroughs are:
Taken together, those three form an emerging trend in organizational innovation recently reported in Financial Times and Forbes. Organizational structures and processes inspired by them are popping up in business, civil society and even in the public sector.
What’s common in Zappos, one of the largest online shoe and clothing shop, the CIO of Washington State in the US, and Buurtzorg, the Dutch neighborhood nursing organization? They all are pioneering changes inspired by the next stage of consciousness needed to meet increasingly complex challenges.
Do you want to work in or with organizations where talent blooms and people’s callings are honored? Where members care for each other as much as for the results of their collaboration? Such organizations do exist and their numbers are slowly but surely growing. It is a movement, as natural as the movement of your body in the morning, as you wake up and slowly stretch limbs.
Do you want to be part of the waking up of the workplaces to realize the full potential of people who invest there a great part of their life? Do you want to gain new perspectives and competences for making a lasting difference for the organization that you’re working with? If you feel a resounding “YES” in your heart to any of the above, then come and join other change champions in this uniquely transformative workshop.
In this workshop you will learn:
The workshop will combine hands-on group exercises, teaching, videos, and collective intelligence practices with methods inspired by Reinventing Organizations, the best-selling management book that started this revolution. Two more things. You will have a chance to network with and join fellow change makers in a peer-to-peer learning community. You will also have a chance to get access to become a facilitator of an open source version of this workshop, complete with a Facilitator’s Guide.
Liberating previously unavailable energies
1. Read the http://futureconsiderations.com/2015/01/reinventing-organisations/ blog and watch a 7-minute video linked from there, where Frederic Laloux is introducing the key findings of his research.
2. Read one of key structures and practices listed in the short index of the Reinventing Organizations book (right after its Table of Contents), which is particularly important to you.
3. Send the facilitator your reflections on the anticipated challenge of reinventing the structure or practice that you’ve chosen.
