serious about people
Authentic Organization is an organizational development consultancy operating across Europe.
We are breaking ground with the concept of organicity to help companies unfold their potential by eliminating unnecessary obstacles from their people doing their best work.
We believe companies must become healthy, adaptive, creative organisms and not paralyzing bureaucracies.
We are guides, facilitators, co-thinkers, combining hard-core business experience with organizational development expertise, consulting in English, French, German, Spanish, Dutch, Czech and Hungarian.

What people are saying
I enjoyed the peer-to-peer session on Virtual Teams I participated in, because of the approachable and reflective approach. Good conversations.
MarkHR Director, Netherlands
Recently I participated in a conversation on Business Ethics. I did a Ph.D. on the subject, so I was interested. Nice to share insights between peers.

Q & A
What is your approach to organizational development?
Our view on this is that we must make it as easy and painless as possible for clients to work with us. Our aim is to understand the situation fully and to minimize the risk that comes from change initiatives. It all starts with a conversation.
Our approach to transformative change may be summed up with the following tenets:
- a practical, fast, and low-risk approach to analysis
- we remain involved after analysis
- and we adopt to the organization
What is the concept of organicity?
We do what we do to make work more human and meaningful. We are pioneers in introducing the principle of organicity into organizations.
According to the organic view, the right metaphor for organizations is a living entity and not a machine. Most problems companies face originate from the disconnect between the company as a machine and the organization as a living entity.
However, almost all current thinking, frameworks and methodologies are based on the machine metaphor. Everybody knows this is false, yet thinking, frameworks and methodologies based on the living entity metaphor are in short supply.
What is your approach re mentoring, coaching and therapy?
Mentoring: (virtual) conversations about anything that relates to your professional and/or personal development.
Examples of mentoring topics:
- dealing with a dilemma
- a dialogue re leadership issues
- working with your manager
- what to do in difficult working situations
- career questions
Coaching: peer-to-peer coaching modules designed by Coaching Ourselves. We have licensed facilitators for their 90-minute modules.
Therapy: (virtual) sessions with expert partner François Weber MD, for reflections on your thoughts, feelings, and way of living.
Who are your clients?
We never speak about our clients if we do not have their consent, we do not spam anybody, we do not record and/or use sessions for marketing reasons or likewise, and always use safe audio and video connections. So you will not find anything on that on social media platforms. However – we have several anonymous cases available in case you are interested in how we approach organizational development issues.
We work mainly for individuals and groups in FMCG, Media, Tech and for start-ups and scale-ups.
Where are you located?
We work across Europe and are physically located in the Netherlands, the Czech Republic and Spain.
