Develop the organization, and start with autonomy
More and more organizations are looking for other ways to manage and organize, rather than a traditional management hierarchy. Self-organization is one of the possible alternatives. Starting from each individual’s autonomy sounds attractive, but does it work in practice? How suitable is Holacracy for us? Can we also start on a small scale and see if we like it? And what is our next step if we want to continue working with the existing decision structure?
We guide change processes in organizations, using Holacracy, Spiral Dynamics and True Purpose coaching. We see organizational development as the process in which the goal is to make the full potential available. That process takes place in a dynamic between three levels (personal-team- organization as a whole). We make organizations and the people who work there more ‘awake’, so to speak, by bringing them into contact with their desires and inner vitality.
Examples of our work in organizational development include. NRG Circles, Your Environment and the HBB Group.
We feel an affinity with the work of Laloux, who identifies self-organization, wholeness, and purpose as three pillars for organizational development. Self-organization is the realization that working from a certain autonomy, with clear responsibilities and explicit boundaries, often does more justice to everyone’s mature contribution than a hierarchical structure with managers.
Wholeness refers to the realization that everyone is equal and can contribute to organizational goals in their own particular way, and that all those contributions matter, including the deeper underlying motivations of the emotional person behind the rational professional. Purpose is about the essence of an organization and encompasses more than an understood mission and vision. Living and working from the purpose of an organization gives energy, meaning and inspiration to employees and customers as well as a clear position in society. Within these three areas we are licensed and certified: as certified Holacracy® coaches, we guide Holacracy adoptions (self-organization), we provide Spiral Dynamics® training at all levels, including certification (wholeness). Our True Purpose® coaching focuses on both individuals and organizations (purpose).
What is your essence? And how do you express that in your life? Are you a change maker? The Personal Purpose Quest (PPQ) is intended for professionals who want to live and work from their core.
