Frederic Laloux’s book, “Reinventing Organisations,” is a powerful exploration into the evolution of organisational structures. Laloux identifies five paradigms, each representing a different stage of human consciousness and corresponding to a different organisational model.

The earliest, the Red paradigm, is characterised by a strict hierarchy and a leader with absolute power. The Amber paradigm, often found in religious or military organisations, brings a higher level of stability through rigid roles and processes.

The Orange paradigm, prevalent in the corporate world, values innovation, competition, and growth. The Green paradigm, often found in family businesses or non-profits, prioritises values and culture over profit.

The most advanced is the Teal paradigm, where organisations are seen as living entities and decision-making is decentralised. Laloux argues that Teal organisations are the future, with their ability to adapt, learn, and evolve.

The book also provides practical tools and strategies for organisations seeking to transition to a Teal model. It emphasises the importance of self-management, wholeness, and evolutionary purpose in achieving this transformation.
