People Operations in a Teal Organization - Tools and Techniques from our Journey
When we first saw Frederic Laloux's "Reinventing Organizations" we immediately said ‘Hell yes, we are doing this - we should never work any other way!’ On our journey to Teal, we have undergone many transitions and experiments. We will share some of our challenges moving towards a deeper teal culture and our goal of developing tools for creating a system of organizational development and self-management. We will share our real-world experience using distributed decision making and organizational structure, self-management for the whole organization, People Operations, peer to peer feedback/engagement/performance reviews, financial transparency, open salaries, managing the business, and giving voice to the organization. A lot of things have been said about Frederic Laloux's Teal organizational models, but not many organizations have actually taken the transformational plunge. Why listen to someone who has just read the book when you can listen to our No BS account of our journey? This means we will tell you what worked and what did not work, warts and all. Real life is messy that way. Attendees will leave with an understanding of People Operations and Teal Organizational Models, as well as specific tactics we used and what went well.
