Yesterday I had the great privilege of meeting Frederic Laloux who was in Montreal as speaker at the annual congress of the CRHA, the Quebec society of HR professionals. His seminal work Reinventing Organizations is hugely inspiring and a must-read for any leader who yearns to create a more purposeful organization that is ultimately more innovative and better-performing. This is all the more important in today’s hyper-connected world that is punctuated by rapid and accelerated change. Frederic’s insights into emerging, next generation organizations was further shared during a “fishbowl” conversation that was expertly facilitated by Samantha Slade of Percolab.
Reinventing Organisations is possibly the very best business book I’ve ever read, and I strongly recommend the book to anyone. It is written for leaders who sense that something is broken in the way we run organizations today and feel deeply that more must be possible, especially in the face of the most disruptive wave of technology humankind has ever experienced… but wonder how to do it.
