What can you expect?
This workshop is for anyone interested in the better ways of managing and working that Teal
Unicorn call Open Work, with a focus on managing work. We have great success with Open Work
https://tealunicorn.com/our-great-results/ . We focus on management because that is the key to
unlocking change in how you work. We call it Open Management, better ways of managing.
There is a lot to cover in a short time so we will touch lightly on a few key topics:
An introduction to our work: what we achieve and how.
What better work looks like: we summarise it as Human Systems Adaptability.
The concepts we introduce to management to make it possible: summarised as invitation,
inspiration, inversion, and transparency.
You can explore the subject ahead of the workshop on the Teal Unicorn website, deep dive here
https://tealunicorn.com/nwomaw/, or for a more concise set of ideas read here
You will take away
– the concepts that invert conventional thinking about work and management the underlying ideas that restore humanity to work and open us up to a VUCA world
– patterns and techniques to explore Open Management in your workplace
– directions for your own personal development
All participants will receive an ‘Open’ book. Signing by the authors is possible during networking.

managing, including DevOps, ITSM, flow, strategy, governance, practices, and of course
management. http://twohills.co.nz [twohills.co.nz] The most valuable reference of all is when a
