People first

I've guided numerous organizations towards a more teal approach of organizing themselves. Where purpose, and not hierarchies, are driving the organization towards its goals.

It’s a lot of work and a big commitment to go through a transformation like this. But in the end, it’s always worth it. Most Teal organizations are formed this way; they´re structured in a more traditional way initially, and then they transform their organization into a more progressive and human-focused organization built on purpose.

That’s why I find it extra interesting and encouraging when I see organizations like Viisi | Hypotheken.

Viisi is a Dutch Mortgage Advice Company that from the beginning implemented a 100% Self-Organization Model. Their philosophy is ‘people first, customers second and shareholders last’.

Their approach is based on the following eight ideas and principles:

No bosses
No functions or titles
No bonuses nor salary negotiation
No performance reviews
Hiring is done by teams
No handbooks
No secrecy
Elected leadership

With a customer satisfaction score that is 9,8 out of 10 and recently rewarded as ‘Best Employer in the Netherlands’ by The Best Place To Work, they must be something right!

Hat off to Viisi | Hypotheken
You’re a leading example that Purpose Drives Success!
