The way we manage organisations seems increasingly out of date and many surveys have shown that a majority of employees feel disengaged from their companies.

Many organizations today suffer from power games played at the top and powerlessness at lower levels with endless bureaucracy, endless meetings and seemingly never-ending cost-cutting programs. And all this during a time in which we all long for soulful workplaces, authenticity, community, passion and purpose. Some say enlightened leaders are the solutions but Frederic Laloux has proposed an alternative approach.

He shows that in order to change the mindsets of organisations, there has to be a change in the way organisations are structured and run. In his book he is introducing the reader to founders and leaders that have fundamentally questioned their styles of management, leading them to creating entirely new organisational methods.
