A more effective leadership model for the new business environment. Spiral Dynamics in Action explores the evolution of modern business, and provides a model for moving forward amidst ever-increasing complexity and change. Only by truly understanding other people's perspectives can you bring them together to achieve the extraordinary, and this book provides a field guide to the different motivations, behaviours and talents in your team to help you lead diverse groups more effectively. Focused on action over theory, the Spiral Dynamics model includes cutting-edge leadership practices, management systems, processes, procedures and techniques to help you bring about real-world results. The nature of change is consistent, but that doesn't make it any less enormous or complex to deal with. As a business leader, you are tasked with not only navigating change yourself, but also guiding others through the maze successfully. This book shows you how to shift your perspective, hone your focus and deliver what your people need by: Understanding the reasoning behind different perspectives. Helping people play off one another's strengths to achieve a shared goal. Adopting cutting-edge practices, processes and procedures for improvement. Taking action to re-connect an increasingly fragmented environment. The marketplace has gone truly global, workforces are increasingly diverse and companies are taking on powerful new social responsibilities. It's a lot to take in, let alone manage, but the responsibility of leadership is to gather disparate parts and make them into a whole. It's your job to turn anchors into rocket fuel, and motivate and inspire your team to the top. By digging to the core of each person, each culture and each problem, you uncover a roadmap to high performance; Spiral Dynamics in Action shows you how to guide your people through any changes and emerge stronger than before.

Releasing the genius of an individual, an enterprise and a society is a central pre-occupation of the contemporary business environment. A fascinating approach to how we can begin to tackle this challenge is presented by the authors of Integral Polity. Integral spirituality, integral philosophy and the integral age, at an overall or holistic level of consciousness, has therefore become a strong enough idea to form the genesis of a movement over the course of the last half century. Taking as a starting point the ground-breaking work of the Trans4m Centre for Integral Development this book applies such an ’integral’ notion to the realms of business, economics and enterprise. To be successful, an integral approach must recognise the nuances of its environment - an integral approach in India is different from that in Indonesia, or Iceland, and they may in fact complement rather than conflict. Therefore this book also provides a fascinating alignment of such ’integrality’ with, and between different ’southern’ and ’eastern’, ’northern’ and ’western’ worlds. Using case studies ranging across the globe this review of a newly integral theory and practice provides a new lease of life to what may increasingly be perceived as the self-seeking, insulated and occasionally violent and corrupt, realm of the political.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Pages: 22. Chapters: J rgen Habermas, Francisco Varela, Ken Wilber, Spiral Dynamics, Jean Gebser, Ervin L szl, Sex, Ecology, Spirituality, John David Garcia, Evolutionary guidance media, Don Beck, Allan Combs, Integral Institute, Boomeritis, Michael E. Zimmerman. Excerpt: J rgen Habermas (English pronunciation: or, German: born June 18, 1929) is a German sociologist and philosopher in the tradition of critical theory and pragmatism. He is perhaps best known for his theory on the concepts of 'communicative rationality' and the 'public sphere'. His work focuses on the foundations of social theory and epistemology, the analysis of advanced capitalistic societies and democracy, the rule of law in a critical social-evolutionary context, and contemporary politics-particularly German politics. Habermas's theoretical system is devoted to revealing the possibility of reason, emancipation, and rational-critical communication latent in modern institutions and in the human capacity to deliberate and pursue rational interests. Habermas is known for his work on the concept of modernity, particularly with respect to the discussions of "rationalization" originally set forth by Max Weber. While influenced by American pragmatism, action theory, and even poststructuralism, many of the central tenets of Habermas' thought remain broadly Marxist in nature. He is considered to be one of the leading intellectuals of the present. Born in D sseldorf, Rhine Province, in 1929, to a middle class and rather traditional family, Habermas came of age in postwar Germany. In his early teens, during World War II, Habermas was profoundly affected by the war. The Nuremberg Trials were a key formative moment that brought home to him the depth of Germany's moral and political failure under National Socialism. Until his graduation from gymnasium, Habermas lived in Gummersb...

Integral Urbanism is an ambitious and forward-looking theory of urbanism that offers a new model of urban life. Nan Ellin's model stands as an antidote to the pervasive problems engendered by modern and postmodern urban planning and architecture: sprawl, anomie, a pervasive culture - and architecture - of fear in cities, and a disregard for environmental issues. Instead of the reactive and escapist tendencies characterizing so much contemporary urban development, Ellin champions an 'integral' approach that reverses the fragmentation of our landscapes and lives through proactive design solutions.

"The most profound and satisfying book to date about the cutting edge of Ken Wilber's integral vision. Reynolds leads us with clarity step by step through the most complex and subtle aspects of Wilber's thinking about post modernity, post-metaphysical theory, the perennial philosophy, the Combs/Wilber matrix, and much more. Highly recommended for those who want to keep up with one of the great intellectual path-finders of our generation." -Allan Combs, Ph.D., University of North Carolina. author of The Radiance of Being: Understanding the Grand Integral Vision; Living the Integral Life "Ken Wilber continues to push the boundaries of knowledge to ever more profound and encompassing reaches, and Brad Reynolds continues to follow him and provide lucid, compelling commentaries. I am impressed by how thoroughly Reynolds has mastered Wilber's work." -Roger Walsh, M.D., Ph.D., University of California, author of Essential Spirituality: The Seven Central Practices "Brad Reynolds has written an eloquent, passionate, beautiful book about my ideas. I believe it will help many people come to an appreciation of a more inclusive, more comprehensive, more integral way to think and feel about the world, and to find a happy, realized, awakened place in it."-Ken Wilber, author of A Theory of Everything Incorporating a vast range of disciplines and research, Wilber's "Integral Vision" is currently defined as being an A-Q-A-L or "all-quadrant, all-level" approach to integral studies (the integration of body, mind, soul, and spirit with self, culture, and nature), therefore the reader will be introduced to Wilber's new integral language and his underlying organizing framework, including his most recent "Phase-5." With this book the reader will learn the basic essentials needed to follow Wilber's continual theoretical expansion (including his forthcoming books) and their pragmatic application, as well as reviewing his current public outreach, such as with the Integral Institute, Integral University, and his growing presence on the worldwide web. By simplifying the details of his complex metatheory, or "where Wilber's coming from," the reader discovers how this integral approach is capable of uniting the knowledge of modern science with the depth and meanings of ancient mysticism, thus transforming the Great Chain of Being into a comprehensive post-metaphysical AQAL Matrix of Spirit-in-action. This evolutionary model also includes a cross-cultural integral psychology that seamlessly integrates East and West, thus clarifying today's confusing spectrum of collective worldviews and the universal stages of individual growth, as well as much, much more. Indeed, the unprecedented integrative power of Wilber's vision and its expanded influence in the first decade of the new millennium is laying the positive foundations for an "integral revolution," or better, a natural evolution to a higher-order worldwide consciousness to which we are all invited, and with which this book will be a helpful user-friendly guide on this exciting adventure.
