How can you ignite passion, commitment in your organisation? with your people?

If these are your burning questions, you are not alone. In an average organisation, 70% (according to Gallup Institute)  of the workforce either doesn’t care much about their work, or actively resists, even boycotts what you are trying to accomplish.

This is not good news for your people, or your organisation.

Command and control management styles are no longer working so well in these times of rapid change and complex challenges. When you need high levels of engagement, trust, responsiveness and innovation - you need to take a different approach.

There are some organisations that have figured out how to engage people and maximise their collective potential - a small but growing movement of management “disruptors” who are showing the rest of the world what is possible.

This kind of shift isn’t for the faint-hearted, and it has the potential to transform your organisation and the people in it.

You may have been inspired by the movement towards 'next-stage organisations': Teal, Semco-style, Leadwise, Agile Scrum, Sociocracy, Holacracy and other responsive organisational approaches.

Not sure how to start, or what step to take next?

If you want to dramatically improve how people feel, work and contribute in your organisation, and are willing to take a different approach, join us.


Through sharing experiences, inspiration and know-how over two days, you will:

  • Figure out how to start your journey of transforming your organisation, with the resources you have right now.
  • Get to know various approaches, processes and tools for supporting engaged people, resolving conflict.
  • Learn how your employees can self-organise and work together for better problem solving, more efficiency and innovation.
  • Learn how to create a receptive environment for a new approach.
  • Experience ways of creating trust and connection (and stop the politics and the power struggle) in your meetings.
  • Learn from, and be inspired by, the personal experience and case studies of leaders that have walked this path, and transformed some of the most unlikely environments (such as the police force).
  • Understand how to keep yourself personally resourced and supported on this new path.
  • Gain a network of people from diverse organisations on the same journey as you. 


CEOs, business owners, HR managers, operational managers, strategists, internal innovators, start-up entrepreneurs - those with influence, or in a leadership role. Anyone who is already inspired by new ways of working, and is ready to take a next step towards self-organisation.

As a global seed-planter, Erwin Van Waeleghem aims to inspire as many people and organizations as possible, to consider reinventing their working collaborations in a more human-centric way.

Professionally, he holds the role of police commissioner/criminologist within the local police force of Leuven (Belgium), where he has successfully brought self-organising or ‘Teal’ principles and practices to his team.

Outside this quite rigid hierarchy, he is very passionate about what he calls his ‘jobby’ - as an international speaker, inspirational steward, external advisor and workshop facilitator. An authentic and passionate speaker, he shares his own story with a focus on self awareness, social innovation and cultural transformation.

Erwin strongly believes in the leadership capacities of everyone. He has already inspired many leaders - sharing diverse regional success stories of self-management, and his own of bringing  teal-principles to the police force in Leuven. He also advises on creating an organizational culture based on Semco Style/Teal principles.

Erwin is co-president and international inspirational steward of the Teal for Teal International Foundation, and is also involved in the international growth of the Semco Style Institute and Sociocracy 3.0.

Listen to Erwin's talk about his experience transforming the police force in Leuven, on Ricardo Semler's Leadwise podcast.
