Limited Capacity seats available

When I first saw Frederic Laloux's "Reinventing Organizations" I immediately said "Hell Yes .... We are doing this .... I will never work any other way!".
On our journey to teal we have undergone many transitions and experiments. Amandas story is a great illustration of the power of opening up the organization, she has transitioned to a few hours a week software tester to the VP of people operations and finance. Amanda and I have been working on our Teal Transformation at LitheSpeed. We want to share some of our challenges moving towards a deeper teal culture and our goal of developing tools for creating a system of organizational Development and self management.
We will share our real world experience using:
  • Colleague Letter of Understanding (CLOU) within LitheSpeed on this journey.
  • Distributed decision making and organizational structure
  • Self management for the whole organization
  • People Operations, peer to peer feedback/engagement/performance reviews
  • Financial transparency, open salaries, managing the business
  • Giving voice to the organization
We will share this story using the World Cafe workshop format. For more information on the world cafe method you can check it out here (http://www.theworldcafe.com/key-concepts-resources/world-cafe-method/).
This interactive workshop will allow participants to learn from our lessons and collaborate to create strategies to transform their organizations or organizations they work with. Participants will be given an overview of each topic, what worked, what challenges we faced and then will be able to break out into topic areas of their choosing
A lot of things have been said about Frederic Laloux's Teal organizational models, but not many organizations have actually taken the transformational plunge. Why listen to someone who has just read the book when you can listen to our No BS account of our journey. This means we will tell you what worked and what did not work, warts and all. Real life is messy that way.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Understanding of People Operations
  • Basic Review of Teal Organizational Models
  • Specific Tactics we Used and What Went Well.
