Mapping to Reinvent the Organization
Building on the work of Frédéric Laloux, particularly his book “Reinventing Organisations”, we use mapping to define the key dimensions to work on during our coaching and training. This map combines spiral dynamics and the four dials model presented below, to offer a systemic perspective on organizations so as to provide a comprehensive response to the needs of our clients.
The Four Dials Model
Based on Ken Wilber’s integral theory, this model offers a systemic perspective on organizations along two axes: the internal/external axis, and the individual/collective axis. This provides four areas for coaching: individuals and their worldview (values and beliefs), individual behaviours, collective culture, and the organizational system (structure, processes, practices).
Combining the work of Ichaz Adizes on the cycle of evolution of organizations with that of J.P Appello on innovation cycles, we have developed a frame of reference that enables us to recommend the best time to introduce a given tool of distributed governance in an organization, based on where that organization is in the innovation cycle.
Developed by the NGO B Lab, the “Benefit Impact Assessment” measures the overall performance of your company through a questionnaire based on ESG (Environment, Society, Governance) criteria and the impact of your business model. This free and confidential tool allows you to compare your performance with over 10,000 organizations’ performance around the world. A score above 80 then enables you to enter the B Corp certification process.
