Enlivening Edge is an international community of collaborators and Partners drawn together to nourish the growing ecosystem of Next-Stage (including Teal) organizations. We are interwoven in a global vanguard of people and organizations transforming their workplaces for the benefit of all.
Inspired by Frederic Laloux’s book Reinventing Organizations, Enlivening Edge was launched in 2015. It was born through the hands, hearts, and minds of a small but passionate crew and a small seed fund provided by Future Considerations.
The original idea was to create an online publication through which people and organizations by sharing their stories could discover each other, learn about and contact each other, and begin to learn from and collaborate with one another.
The current formal statement of Enlivening Edges’s evolutionary purpose is:
Catalyzing relationships among innovators who are accelerating the evolution of organizations and social systems for human and environmental thriving.
People with enough connections tend to realize they are part of a social ecosystem, a “whole” with its own collective intelligence. The synergies made possible by the parts functioning with the intelligence of a whole are creating powerful movements that transform individuals, organizations, societal sectors, and we hope, the world.
With such a large-scale purpose, the original idea of a “newsletter” morphed in ways we couldn’t imagine—touching and inspiring thousands of people across the world through our four primary services and other projects from time to time.
