Hello! My name is Dr. Tamsin Woolley-Barker. I’m an evolutionary biologist and anthropologist by training, and for 30 years I’ve studied nature’s solutions – the incredible ways living things survive and thrive in a complex and changing world.
Every creature alive today is a proven winner – their ancestors survived 4 billion years of struggle and success. Today, I bring their strategies to a Fortune 500 clientele, helping them design better products and services, teams and companies. It's Biomimicry – innovation inspired by nature, and Fortune magazine calls it’s the #1 trend in business today.
Many of you will have read my book, TEEMING, which describes the way nature’s most successful teams (like ants, honeybees, termites, and fungal networks) work together. People like you made it happen, by contributing to the original Kickstarter campaign in 2015. Your support enabled TEEMING to attract a publisher and become a #1 Amazon Bestseller.
Since then, I've received countless letters from people asking how they can put TEEMING to work. The result is EVOLVING TEEMING CULTURES, an interactive workbook for organizations that want to grow innovation cultures and high-performance teams the way nature’s most successful species do. And once again, I’m funding this effort with a Kickstarter campaign, because I believe in the wisdom and power of the crowd.
EVOLVING TEEMING CULTURES is designed for executives, managers, entrepreneurs, and change-makers – leading-edge innovators who want to nurture and grow innovative, agile, passionate and high-performing teams and cultures.
EVOLVING TEEMING CULTURES will help your team and organization:
- unleash shared purpose and empowered execution
- grow bottom-up solutions, emergent strategies, and deep resilience
- go beyond incremental efficiencies of scale to tap exponential economies of innovation
- elicit passionate engagement from customers and employees
You can use EVOLVING TEEMING CULTURES as a self-guided course, or gather your team for a rich series of discussions and explorations. I also offer weekly virtual facilitation, or full-scale consulting assistance to help you get the most from your journey. EVOLVING TEEMING CULTURES guides you through creating essential custom touchpoints that will enable your organization to move forward as a living adaptive system, and a powerful action plan for getting there.
EVOLVING TEEMING CULTURES will include:
- a custom TEEMING Cultural Assessment
- a tailored roadmap for growing and scaling innovation cultures, TEEMING with purpose and performance
- powerful and provocative biological frameworks for growing lasting value
- targeted case studies of companies TEEMING with purpose and performance
- simple, actionable tools and strategies
- exciting idea prompts for innovation
- a powerful action plan designed by and for your own team
I aim to have the workbook complete and ready to ship in Spring 2019, and this campaign will fund the final stages. Your support will help me do the final copy-edit, design, and other specialty work I need to make this book an essential resource for your company, your team, and you. I'm offering all kinds of great incentives for your participation. Be the first to get EVOLVING TEEMING CULTURES, the TEEMING audiobook, or any of the other exciting incentives I’ve put together for you, such as:
- signed copies of my books (TEEMING, EVOLVING TEEMING CULTURES, and Letters from the Tangled Bank)
- t-shirts from my Bonobo Revolution project for women's empowerment
- inspiring custom keynotes, webinars, workshops, and retreats
- TEEMING card decks and tools
- cutting-edge innovation or organizational consulting and facilitation
If I can customize an incentive for you, or you'd just like to share your thoughts, please reach out – I would love to hear from you!
I hope you will join me in pioneering work that works for all of us. I know you will love the way it jumpstarts your team's creativity and collaboration, re-igniting their purpose and passion.
TEEMING…it’s the way we like to work, and the way we work best!
Thank you for your enthusiasm and support. Thank you and TEEM on!
Risks and challenges
This project is going to happen! Creating this workbook is my number one top priority, and the content has all been assembled. I intend to have it ready to ship in Spring 2019, but delays do happen. I am partially dependent on others for final copy editing, design, and creating the accompanying assessment. My previous Kickstarter campaign (for the book TEEMING) ran considerably overtime, as the process of funding attracted a publisher. Publishers have their own timetables! This time I am publishing through my own imprint, so the timetable is my own. All the rewards are ready to ship, aside from the audiobook which has been recorded and is in final production. That will definitely be ready for delivery before the end of the campaign. If you're thinking about using these rewards as holiday gifts, I can assure you that the t-shirts, TEEMING, Letters from the Tangled Bank, and the audiobook will reach US addresses in time.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
