What the heck is 'teal'?
It is a turquoise colour, as seen in teal ducks
It is also a colour code, used in Frédéric Laloux's book 'Reinventing Organizations', referring to a new stage in the development of human consciousness and of a corresponding shift towards different ways of working
It is rapidly becoming an attitude and life-style!
A 'teal' organisation can be described as having three main characteristics - self-management, wholeness and evolutionary purpose.
The most apt metaphor to describe 'teal' is that of a living organism...and I am very interested in trying to bring 'teal' ways of working to more organisations, particularly within the mental health arena.
