It’s long been recognised that the human brain continues to develop throughout our lives. More recently attention has been given to the study of individual consciousness and how this expands through stages or action logics. There is much written about this you can check out Ken Wilber, Susanne Cook-Greuter, William Torbert or Terri O’Fallon’s research in adult development through action logics. Action Logics describes the preferred way in which an individual makes meaning of the world. More on Action Logics here.
I was interested in Frederic Laloux’s identification of a similar vertical transformation emerging in business. “Reinventing Organisations” details a new style of leadership and management emerging and identifies the emergence of a new Teal organisation that empowers its’ workforce and shows increased motivation and productivity.
Frederic Laloux in his book “Reinventing Organisations” believes that leaders of these Teal organisations are functioning from a more expansive action logic. These leaders seem to be making meaning from a strategist or alchemist action logic. What distinguishes them is their ability to be comfortable with holding paradox and uncertainty and to think globally.
Igniting Minds is a certified user of the Harthill leadership development framework. This enables us to identify your preferred action logic and support you through transformational coaching to expand your consciousness to make meaning from a later action logic.
Coaching will help you identify the patterns that are keeping you in an earlier action logic and help you expand your thinking into a higher one. An organisation can only grow as far as the consciousness of its leader. If you want your company to be a fast growing, highly motivated and productive Teal organisation then begin with expanding your own level of meaning making.

I’m curious if a new shift of consciousness is currently underway. Can it help us invent a radically more soulful and purposeful way to run our businesses and nonprofits, schools and hospitals? Could this future proof the planet for humanity?
“Reinventing Organizations” describes in practical detail how organizations large and small can operate in this new paradigm.
