Sources and practices for integral leadership

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedings/Edited volumeConference contributionScientific


This conference starts from the premise that current thinking practices do not meet the needs of the world. All the knowledge brought by individuals, teams and organisations isn¿t enough to meet current crises in the fields of climate, finance or economy. On the contrary, the cause of these crises can be understood as lying in the way we think about the world. Finding answers to the complexities of this world requires that we make use of as many different sources of insight as possible. Yet, the mental models that guide our behaviour and the behaviour of the organisations we work in are too often inadequate for collaborating across the borders of organisation, profession, interest, conviction, culture, religion or nation. And only in such We face a need to reinvent the way we generate knowledge, skills and attitudes and reframe the relation between practice and reflection, research and education. This conference explores this renewal. It connects the perspectives of science, practice, competencies. It brings together learners in action, reflective practitioners, and action researchers. The experimental [experiential? This fits better as `experiment¿ occurs further on in the sentence] format of the conference also attracts experiments in the format of the contributions. These proceedings include a wealth of ideas, based on research, case histories, introspection and reflection. The contributions show how individuals are exploring the connectivity between theory and practice, between the frameworks people use and the practices that they foster. Based on the burning questions from their practices, authors and practitioners reveal how they are exploring concepts and theoretical frameworks and also indicate their capacity, to be open to confronting theories. Some authors reveal how they really listen to the consequences of perspectives that differ from their own convictions while others report on the place of endeavour in their work.
