June 2012 / Leadership Emerging

Future Trends in Leadership Development: A White PaperNick Petrie (December 2011). Future Trends in Leadership Development: A White Paper. Greensborough, North Carolina: Center for Creative Leadership.

 

Many of the ideas associated with integral leadership are beginning to show up in the mainstream business and organizational literature. Note, for example, the leader-follower-context model of Barbara Kellerman discussed in Russ Volckmann’s interview with her in this issue (June 2012) of Integral Leadership Review and Kellerman’s book, The End of Leadership. This white …

Jennifer Garvey Berger, Changing on the Job: Developing Leaders for a Complex World

June 2012 / Leadership Emerging

Jennifer Garvey Berger. Changing on the Job: Developing Leaders for a Complex World. Stanford, CA: Stanford Business Books, 2012.

It is unusual to find an integrally informed author showing up in a university press, aside from SUNY and their integral series. Berger lives in a small seaside village in New Zealand, but her background is far more cosmopolitan than that:

Formerly an associate professor at George Mason University in Virginia in the US, Jennifer learned

Micha Popper. Fact and Fantasy About Leadership. Northampton, MA: Edward Elgar, 2012.

Here is a book aligned with some of the thinking of folks like Barbara Kellerman and others who see the leader-follower relationship as essential to understanding either. The author states,

[W]e can visualize leadership as fire — a metaphor borrowed from the researchers Katherine Klein and Robert House, fire that is fed by three components: fuel (the followers), oxygen (the environmental context) and

Susan Cain. Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking

June 2012 / Leadership Emerging

Susan Cain. Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking. New York: Crown Publishing, 2012.

Okay, I’m an introvert. Or am I? Am I centered in a Green or an Individualist level of development. Am I an Enneagram 7? So many categories. So many boxes. So many ways of practicing a reductionist approach to self, others and the world. Yet, we don’t need to fall into the reductionist trap. Rather than …

If you are truly interested in adult development and/or integral leadership and organizations, the odds are you have already heard about this book, although it is self-published. Barrett is a highly respected consultant who has flirted with the world of integral, although you can search all 500+ pages of this book in vain to find …

Links Between Disciplines

Uncategorized

When links are introduced between disciplines, as is the transdisciplinary way, the disparate disciplines gain opportunities to change their concepts, structures and aims (Jantsch, 1972). From a transdisciplinary perspective, disciplines need not be abolished; rather, they need to be taught and conducted in the context of their dynamic interrelationships with each other and with societal problems (Apostel et al., 1972). Wilson (1998) agrees, noting that most of the issues that vex humanity daily cannot be solved …

Transdisciplinary Approaches

Uncategorized

One of the many streams of thought that we have been featuring here is transdisciplinary. See the articles by Sue McGregor (2009a) and another by Predrag Cicovaki (2009) in previous issues. Almost a year ago Russ learned of an effort at Arizona State University to develop transdisciplinary programs and approaches.
