Telosity? What’s in a name? A word? The root telos (meaning “intended end or purpose”) with the suffix -ity describes a continuous movement toward the fulfillment of your organization’s purpose-for-others. The pronunciation of the word (like “velocity”), suggests an acceleration towards a business organization’s best version of itself.

Telosity captures the essence of a moment, a time, a movement, an acceleration—from one place, to another. The world we call “business” has left what it once was but has not yet arrived where it is going. Once, shareholder value maximization was pre-eminent. Not any more. Now, the social benefit of a business is in ascendancy and a new relationship with profit as means, rather than ends, is in formation. With this shift in the core purpose of a business comes radical change, even re-formation—a radical re-alignment of a particular type of organization, with unseen implications. The fundamental nature of what we have called and known as a business is being re-shaped. We, here at Telosity, think…for the better.
A central concept of Telosity is the relationship between purpose, brand and culture. Healthy organizations reconcile why they exist (purpose) with their identity and how they express themselves externally (brand) and how they really are internally (culture). In a healthy business, all three of these elements—purpose, brand and culture—are anchored in a reason to exist beyond mere profit maximization.
