Maureen Metcalf: Is There Such A Thing As A ‘Level 5’/Teal Organization?

Part 1

In complex adaptive systems, those required to meet many of the challenges we currently face, leaders and organizations need to co-evolve to ensure their ability to respond to the opportunities and challenges. During this conversation, Terri and Maureen explore how individuals and organizations evolve. It starts with the question of how individuals “grow up” as leaders. They then map this same framework to exploring how organizations evolve. Terri presents a brief overview of the STAGES model, using it to frame to conversation about how a developmental model can be used to better understand the idea of organizational evolution. This is particularly useful when individuals use the developmental tools they employ for their own development to help the organization mature. While this sounds like even more work for busy leaders, this is the focus that enables them to create systems that are truly adaptive.

Part 2

This is the second interview exploring the idea of Level 5/Teal organizations. During this discussion, we delve more deeply into how we can foster the development of these leading edge capacities. Further exploring organizational shadow and integrative thinking, we will look at case studies, practical examples and interventions that support level 5 leadership and organizational development.

  • Why are trust and safety important quality in teal organizational culture?
  • Are level 5/ teal capacities skills that we can learn or do we just have to “be” a level 5 / teal leader?
  • Exactly how can organization and leaders become more adaptive?
  • What is organizational shadow? Why is it important? How can we identify it and work with it?
  • What are organizational polarities and how to teal leaders and organization deal with them that goes beyond decision making or multiple bottom line? This exploration is important for leaders aspiring to reshape their organizations.

Hispanoamérica Integral Conference

The first large-scale meeting by and for the entire Spanish-speaking community.

The First Encuentro Hispanoamérica Integral is the opportunity to participate in the emergence of a new perspective, which is able to use all the knowledge gathered by different cultures, exact sciences, humanities and the great sacred traditions, to face the challenges of humanity.

This meeting offers you to know and deepen the understanding of the integral conscience, practice it collectively and be part of a network of people and organizations that are focused on building new understandings and practices, consolidate links and generate proposals to evolve in the different areas of life.

One of the reasons the STAGES model of development is becoming more well known is that it is remarkably precise in helping us locate where in our past Shadow may have been created. When we do this, we can begin to see how our current difficulties are connected to early experience, which has been layered over and forgotten, or perhaps occurred before we had memory recall. STAGES gets us to this “location” rather quickly and efficiently.

Dancing with the Demons

At some point in our development we realize that we have a Shadow, a part of our being that is below the level of awareness and that operates in our life in ways that can hold back our development and even cause a lot of suffering. We sometime refer to this as our “demons.” By definition, we can’t see our own Shadow clearly because we’re usually looking at life through it—or identifying as it. But once we realize this, we begin looking for the tools and support we need to work with our Shadow material.
