Introduction to The Living Organization®


Training For Change Agents

A Bridge to a New Way of Working

Today’s business challenges require a shift in how we relate to organizations.

As a consultant or internal change agent, you know we can no longer relate to the organization as a machine whose program is written by leadership and executed by employees.

The key to the success of The Living Organization Approach is that its core focus is on creating new outcomes – the top priority of any leader. With this approach we  link and integrate the “soft-side” and the “hard-side.”  No longer does a leader have to choose one over the other. The Living Organization supports creating results while implementing organization improvement programs.

The Living Organization Framework is not a new model as much as it is a platform that enables any of these models to be better implemented. It is the bridge that allows an organization to shift the paradigm from operating like a machine to operating like a living being.

+ More about this course

Whether you follow Teal, Responsive Org, Agile Business, Micro-Enterprise Model, Self-Management, Lean Startup or another framework, they all point to organizations that are responsive, agile, adoptable, releasing their creative energy – attributes of a living entity.  Yet, all of them fight against the pull of the existing machine paradigm.

It is time to shift the paradigm! Show organizations how to produce results that allow them to grow and thrive and make a positive contribution to society and all those involved.  It is time for organization to be seen as living beings, comprised of business units and departments that are also living beings.

In Introduction to The Living Organization, you will discover how to help your clients produce more results with less effort, engaging the whole organization in the process.

“I have attended many leadership programs over the course of my career and rarely have I received something new that I can directly apply to my challenges.  This program was the exception providing many Aha moments. The Living Organization is an alternative way of thinking about your business that fosters better relationships, and increased productivity. ”
