I. "Integrative Leadership: Building a Foundation..."

When we were first confronted with the complexity and many different definitions, models and approaches to the idea of leadership, we began an intensive three-year study of human, management and leadership development to help unravel the mystery and complexity. The purpose of our study was to search for the foundational model of leadership that we felt stood behind and informed all other models. Three criteria guided our search: The model needed to be simple and resonant; unifying and integrative; and of service and additive.

Our search led us first through the past 100 years of leadership development literature; then through 300 years of scientific research, then through 3,000 years of wisdom and mystic traditions externally while simultaneously deeply reflecting and examining our own 50 years of experience in consciously walking the path of integration internally. Our search resulted in an evolving integrative philosophy, uncovering of what we feel is the foundational model that gives rise to all other life and leadership models; and universal laws, principles and practices that guide and inform the journey of integration.

Collectively we have chosen to call our results, Integrative LeadershipTM.

II. "Integrative Leadership Self Study Guide: Let spirit be the ..."

The Integrative Leadership Study Guide’s purpose is to invite you to the path of integration: to undertake the inner work of becoming an integrative leader in the hope that you may bring a deeper wisdom to your outer world: and ultimately, in the words of Mahatma Gandhi, “to be the change you wish to see in the world.” This guide is a self study companion to the book Integrative Leadership: building a foundation for personal, interpersonal and organizational success (2005), and also it may be used independently. The format is to introduce concepts of Integrative Leadership; the coauthors have a dialogue about the application of those concepts, and then through the use of reflective questions and space to write, invite the reader into the application process.
