08/15 – Thinking About Integral

Feature Articles / August 2011

Gary Hawke

As I have been developing the Integral Alive model, it appears that I am spending time feeling into the inquiry of —what does Integral mean. The more I have pursued this question, the more I began to realise that if I want to use the word Integral, then I better understand, not just what it means, but also in what circumstances I am using Integral.

In the past, I held with the idea that …

Leadership Quote / August-November 2013

08/15-Tension and Compression: Pre-requisites for a Healthy Business

Feature Articles / August-November 2013

Christine McDougall

This article has been written after years of working with businesses and leaders within business. The examples of businesses that work well with tension and compression are rare. Most of the businesses that get this right are small and agile. They have unquestioned clarity around the service their business provides and they hold this core integrity as sacred.

Any breakthrough agenda for Business as Unusual needs to consider at the minimum four components.

08/15 – The Four Rs of Alethic Coaching- The Heart of Alethic Coaching

Leadership Coaching Tips / August-November 2013

Gary Hawke

Critical Realism is a project of emancipation, as Bhaskar has stated, “a total project to demolish the ideologies standing in the way of human freedom”. If this is the project of Critical Realism, then it is also a search for truth or a search for the Alethic truth, again Bhasker, “This is the level of truth in which when we talk about truth of something we are talking about the reality which grounds, explains …

08/15 – The Next Stage Facilitation

Notes from the Field / August-November 2013

Chela Davison

I want to be better. Call it an evolutionary impulse or compulsive addiction to seeking adequacy or something else all together. Whatever this is, it has me continually seeking out the very things that bring me to my edge, and propel me into, or through it. It’s this hungry seeker within that has me show up both as a participant and at times, a facilitator of change events, courses and workshops. I’ve been a …

08/15 – ITC Perspectives: A Giant Leap Forward or a Bridge Too Far?

Notes from the Field / August-November 2013

Jonathan Reams

I attended the 2013 Integral Theory Conference with my usual tendency to sit somewhat on the margins and observe the gathering with a mix of appreciative and critical eyes. One part of me is grateful for all the work to enable a gathering of people who have a diverse commonality in that they may have a wide range of ideas, experience, attitudes and perspectives they bring into the mix, but there is some kind …

08/15 – Rosace: A New French Approach Aimed at Getting Work for Integral PhDs

Notes from the Field / August-November 2013

Bruno Roussel and Brian Van der Horst

At the Unversity of Toulouse in the South of France, a new organization called Rosace  (the French word for those huge rose-shaped stained-glass windows in cathedrals) has been founded to consult and orient those earning integral doctorates to actually finding gainful employment in the real world.

In France, they often call integral studies “transdisciplinary” as you may have read in various past ILR articles about Basarab Nicolescu ( …
