Reinventing Organizations: 3 Breakthroughs to Make Organizations More Integral

Frederic LalouxAudio, Cognitive, Conversations, Interpersonal, Leadership, Perspectives, Premium 1 Comment

In this extraordinary 5-hour discussion, Frederic Laloux and Ken Wilber take an extensive tour through Frederic’s groundbreaking new book, Reinventing Organizations, which offers an in-depth look at many integrally-structured organizations that are beginning to emerge all across the planet, while outlining three major breakthroughs shared by these organizations: self-management, striving for wholeness, and listening to evolutionary purpose.

Reinventing Organizations sets itself apart from other organizational literature in its staggeringly comprehensive account of these organizations—describing how they work, how they are structured, how decisions are made, how meetings are run, etc. Whereas most other attempts to make sense of organizational development have been extrapolated from studies of individual development, this book represents the first real collection of research into the actual structural development of organizations that we’ve seen—offering a clear roadmap to help us evolve our own organizations to an integral level, detailing the unique structures, processes, and purpose that the most successful integral organizations utilize in their day to day operations.

“A spectacular treatise! This is truly pioneering work.”
–Ken Wilber, from the Foreword

“Richly researched—a stimulating and inspiring read!”
–Robert Kegan, Harvard University’s Meehan Professor of Adult Learning

“Impressive! Brilliant! This book is a world-changer”
–Jenny Wade, Ph.D., Author of Changes of Mind

    I am currently involved with an online organization designed to help companies become more highly evolved and conscious. Having recently been certified by this organization, I am interested in starting my own consulting firm based on Integral Theory and using the three basic concepts (Wholeness, Evolutionary Purpose, and Self-Mangement) described by Federick Laloux.
