Many methods have been developed for organisational change, depending most often on a one-time grand event to bring change. While these events take and produce initial energy, employee engagement oftentimes is not sustained. Earth’s nature provides key examples of interrelated stable systems, such as the water cycle and independent ecosystems, which should be harnessed for use for organisational development. No current organisational model or system adequately demonstrates the same power that bonds between atoms in a molecule do. Following the examples in the natural world, connections between people in an organisation can be augmented and strengthened, leading to more adaptable organisations. This conceptual sustainable method herein described involves an intentional matrix of pairing employees in an organisation to create or strengthen the connections and communication between them. The key design elements are offered along with a model of how facilitation would be implemented. Based on principles from the natural world, this organisational chemistry method allows companies to develop stronger employee bonds and sustain long-term growth, change, and adaptability.
