Next Global Teal Meetup: Recognizing Teal in People and Teams

By Manuel Perez Gomez & Stephanny Pena for Enlivening Edge Magazine

Teal is a paradigm shift, an entirely new way of thinking about power, leadership, collaboration, and what it means to be human and whole at work. The free Global Teal Meetup is a space where we can redesign these dynamics together, explore concepts like wholeness, self-management, and evolutionary purpose, and learn how to use them to build the next stage of organizations (1).

The idea of celebrating these events came from the success of the global Teal Around The World conferences hosted by The Teal Network, which connect communities across the US, Europe, and Asia/Australia. You can register for the upcoming Global Teal Meetups right here:

(1) Terms like “Teal” and “next-stage organization” derive from Frederic Laloux’s book Reinventing Organizations: A Guide to Creating Organizations Inspired by the Next Stage in Human Consciousness. The scope of attention and invitation to the GTM gatherings is broader than the particular Teal organizational paradigm. It aims to include all others moving toward a new stage of consciousness as reflected in our organizations.

The Brand New Global Teal Meetup for the Americas

The past free events have brought many Teal practitioners and enthusiasts together. What we have loved the most is the opportunity to hear different perspectives on human and organizational issues, learn from people’s real-world experiences, and recognize the principles of Teal in each others’ work. However, many of you felt that you needed a little more time to get to know other participants. We have heard your feedback, and now we are back with our newly structured GTM this April 21st at 3 pm EDT!

In this fifth quarterly Global Teal Meetup for the Americas, we’ll be using storytelling and more action-oriented activities to connect more deeply and unearth the wisdom of our growing Teal community.

Come and meet paradigm shifters like yourself—leaders, workers, coaches, and community members—and let’s help each other raise our self-awareness and put the principles of Teal into practice. As we become more purposeful, self-managed, and whole, so will our organizations.


  • Learning and connecting around the 3 principles of Teal—wholeness, self-management, and evolutionary purpose.
  • Story Swap: Share how you and others tipped over into thinking about new ways of working.
  • Board of Advisors: Get actionable, crowd-sourced advice from your peers about a specific challenge that you have and share your wisdom with others.
  • Action Plan: Take the advice received and create an action plan to implement over the coming weeks.

Register here!

We’ll be in the Reception Zoom starting at 3 pm EDT / 12 pm PDT at:

This event is free, and everyone’s welcome. If you don’t know about Teal but are curious about it, check out this overview!
