Based on Integral leadership theory by Ken Wilber
Being a leader is a complex and challenging job in today’s environment and it is important to check regularly if what you are doing leads to results, job satisfaction and a high level of performance from your staff. Many leaders, however, are too busy to spend time considering whether they are effective integral leaders or not. They are so focused on getting things done and keeping the organisation/business operating successfully, that they don’t ask for feedback about how they are managing and leading people.
Conscious leadership, or integrally inclined leadership, is the path forward because it drives transformative change.
Integral means whole, complete, or possessing everything that’s essential—and as such, integral leadership harmonizes complete, whole, and essential, and it helps broaden the perspective of each leader in order to understand, decide, and act impartially, efficiently, and functionally.
Those classified as integrally inclined leaders typically have a high-level interest in personal mastery, meaning that they go beyond self-identity and ego to pursue their highest potential. They are both conscious and tend to strive for next levels of performance and success for themselves and the organizations or groups they lead—and they remain curious and open, re-prioritizing and redefining the meaning of success as they gather more information.
Therefore, integrally inclined leaders:
have a high-level interest in personal mastery
strive for high levels of performance and success for themselves and the organizations or groups they lead
ree-prioritizing and re-defining the meaning of success
