“What does it mean to be an Ally of Evolution, and how it impacts your life? As we know evolution occurs not only in the physical exterior, but also in the subjective interiors: in human consciousness, relationships, and social collectives such as businesses, organizations and societies–and that’s what we are going to share and compare.
During the Conference, in the discussions and throughout the practices, you might feel a high concentration of energy, which might impact your life in the long run. We believe our world needs your vision, your input, and your participation in the collective evolutionary process. If you feel inspired and called to participate, then you are an Ally of Evolution.” — The Integral European Conference Team
Here we go again… Following the success at IEC 2016 of the first-ever Teal Organizations track of the conference, a new and larger team organized by Enlivening Edge, in collaboration with Next Stage World, will curate the Teal Organizations track at the third Integral European Conference, 22-27 May 2018 in Hungary. The intention is to create a programme that caters to the different needs of people and different stages on their (organizations’) journey to Teal. Perhaps you happened to just read the Reinventing Organizations book or hear from a colleague about it, or are just curious about what Eros has to do with reinvention, or you’re a seasoned practitioner of Holacracy®, Sociocracy, or any other flavour of next-stage organizational practices. In any case, in the rich menu of our track at IEC 2018 you will find something nourishing and juicy.
The track will bring together people from diverse sectors of society to raise awareness of the versatility of organizations that are demonstrating the future of work in the present, including in healthcare, education, transportation, consulting, training, start-ups, manufacturing, commerce, public administration, and other sectors.
This time, there will also be an emphasis on the birth and evolution of the “next-stage organizations” wave and how the emerging integral or “Teal” organizations are drivers for transformation across many areas of society.
The topics of presentations and workshops will cover
- what Teal is and how it supports all previous stages of development,
- the transformative potential–at the individual, organizational, and systemic scale–of the 3 breakthroughs marking Teal organizational consciousness, and
- the influence of Integral thinking on organizations ‘going Teal.’
Based on early expression of interest in delivering workshops in the track, we know that there will be Allies of Evolution coming from Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, and even from countries farther away, such as Australia, China, Russia, and US.
If you have developed some innovative practices for reinventing organizations or are a thought leader in your field, we encourage you to share your experience and wisdom at the conference. It is still not too late to apply for and secure a slot in the programme. If you do that, don’t forget to look up also the page with important background information about this track.
Last but not least, at IEC 2018 you will have a chance to tap into the collective intelligence of our track’s participants and build crucial connections for helping to lift your project and the organization that you work with to their next stage.
