Leading “a soulful revolution in the workplace”, Laloux’s book Reinventing Organizations focuses on how to turn a disillusioned organization into an enlightened one. His research and analysis demonstrates that every time humanity has shifted to a new stage of consciousness in the past, it has invented new ways to structure and run organizations. The enlightened organization, he said, is collaborative, decentralised, and adaptive, with a “sense and respond” approach to problems, operating on trust rather than fear.
