The conception of the organization as a system and not as a mechanism allows a unique approach to the growth of organizations. In this approach, the heart of the dynamism of the growth of the organization is in the growth of people through their work in the organization. The anthropological requirements of such growth are studied, inspired by the reflections of Leonardo Polo, who assumes a systemic vision of the person and the organization. Specifically, co-existence, personal knowledge, personal freedom and personal love are proposed as the central elements for said growth. With this, the article proposes a coherent vision with the 'ba' term proposed by Nonaka and, at the same time, broadens its scope.
