Did you read Frederic Laloux's Reinventing Organizations and are completely hooked but don't know what to do to implement this vision? Or have you stumbled across an organization in which employees implement projects in a completely self-organized way and would like to try out these approaches in your company? Then you've come to the right place.

Teal is not a strategy or a blueprint that can be studied and then implemented. It is expression of a mindset that translates into every decision. From the outside, it can seem contradictory and eclectic. It does not obey a congruent strategy, but reacts immediately to every new situation and is also ready to question its own basic assumptions.

These characteristics make it so difficult to describe Teal to someone who has not experienced it for themselves. And it makes it even more difficult to design concrete transformation plans. They often remain far too theoretical and abstract.

Our approach is different: we want to show you the first concrete step towards a Teal transformation as soon as possible. It's something you can do today that will immediately challenge your and your team's standard mode of operation.

If you're ready to take that step, we'd love to meet you.


Get the first step to Teal!

Here you can book an appointment to get your first step towards a Teal Transformation. We will meet via video chat and you can briefly explain your situation to one of our consultants. After that, you will receive the first concrete step we recommend by email.

The whole thing is completely without obligation and free of charge.

So what is Teal, anyway?

The term Teal describes a certain way in which people work together. It is characterized by authenticity, autonomy and meaningfulness. The term was largely coined by Frederic Laloux, who in his book Reinventing Organizations examines companies, schools and other organizations that are radically different from others. They focus on personal initiative and the inherent drive of each employee to create good. But Laloux also draws on an existing notion:

The term Teal is used to denote a certain stage of the development of consciousness, which adults go through, although not necessarily to the point of Teal. I Although it is not the last stage discovered, it is the bleeding edge that is driving us forward.


Why Teal? A (short) historical view

History of Teal Organizations

A slightly longer historical view...

The way people organize has evolved alongside humankind. The more sophisticated our mind, needs and emotions became, the more our need for more complex organizations arose; and at the same time our ability to build these organizations. But, let's start at the beginning.
