For anyone experiencing and feeling frustrated with inefficiency, abundance of meetings, changing priorities, and other challenges of modern work life, I recommend the illustrated version of Reinventing Organizations.
Why? Through the lens that Frederic Laloux offers, these frustrations can be normalized and understood as as a sign to embrace the evolution of operating systems beyond the limitations of traditional hierarchy. Laloux offers examples of what’s possible in the “next-stage” of organizational operations. If you enjoy it, you’ll probably appreciate the more detailed version.
Excerpt: “If there is much pain in the world today, it’s in part because our current ways of being in the world feels increasingly outdated and incapable of dealing with the challenges we are facing. We happen to be in one of these transition periods where the old is starting to break down, but the new hasn’t taken shape yet.”
