Reinventing Organizations: A Guide to Creating Organizations Inspired by the Next Stage of Human Consciousness is a terrific book for anyone interesting in learning about democratizing and debureaucratizing organizations while increasing profits and employee satisfaction, engagement, and well-being. Though this sounds unrealistic and perhaps a bit Utopian, author Frederic Laloux’s thorough research and in-depth reportage of various exemplar organizations around the world, demonstrate that it can be done—but not by anybody. Like any evolutionary system, the forefront of enlightened organizational change begins with a few who become the models and create the systems and conditions for others to follow—when they are ready. This fascinating resource will inspire everyone who wants to learn about the successful transformation of what were once stultifying, disempowering, red-tape-riven workplaces that crush the human spirit. In Reinventing Organizations, we finally see there is a way out—toward building truly remarkable achievement oriented organizations that help the human spirit thrive.
