Enlivening Edge is an international community of collaborators and Partners drawn together by a shared purpose—to nourish the growing ecosystem of Next-Stage (Teal) organisations. We are interwoven in a global vanguard of people and organizations engaged in this work.
Inspired by Frederic Laloux’s book, Reinventing Organizations, Enlivening Edge was launched in 2015. It was born through the hands, hearts, and minds of a small but passionate crew of people, and a small seed fund provided by Future Considerations.
The original idea was to create an online publication reporting from the frontlines of organizations that were transforming the workplace for the benefit of all.
Since then, our work has morphed in ways we couldn’t imagine—touching and inspiring thousands of people across the world.
Enlivening Edge is currently organised around key projects: EE Magazine, EE Community Conversations, EE Facebook Community, Teal Org Mapping, curating the Teal Organizations Track for Integral European Conference 2018, and Transformational Learning Projects.
In a nutshell, we exist to amplify the evolution of organizations and social systems—and make them more hospitable to the human spirit.
Through our key projects, we help strengthen the ecosystem of Next-Stage movements. We weave together people, knowledge and inspiration. We boost the emergent collective intelligence, consciousness, and impact of Next-Stage organizations and initiatives. And we help the Next-Stage ecosystem see itself more clearly and connect with more of its parts.
We will not rest until these emerging Next-Stage initiatives become the mainstream way of organizing work across sectors, countries, and social systems—for the benefit of all.
At the same time, we recognize that the evolutionary wave, carrying these initiatives across the planet, has a life of its own. We are simply in its service.
We are a vibrant, warm, and forward-leaning community of volunteers, always on the lookout for people who want to join us in this work. If you feel aligned with who we are, what we do, and why we do it, here are some ways to get involved.
