WHAT IS ORGANIZATIONAL ENERGY?
The term '''Organizational Chakras''' refers to the set of energy centres within an organization or company (public or private).

They also hold that the OES is a broad and effective management tool that can be used in all types of organizations, such as private companies, public administrations, not-for-profit, associations, etc.
