What’s your intention for your work and life? Does fulfilling your intention mean you will likely rock the boat? Are you habituated to having everyone feel comfortable? Everyone but you. Certain intentions won’t go away because they serve the greater good. We serve the Integrating Catalysts, the ones most capable of the most good in organizational leadership positions because they can act from the most complex circumstances. Let us explain…We need better managed businesses more than ever in our interdependent global world. For that, business as usual needs a radical makeover. Serving many stakeholders rather than focusing only on stockholders is key to sustainable, prosperous business in a complex and volatile environment. We call the new business leader an Integrating Catalyst. The work of the Integrating Catalyst is both daunting and transformative.Integrating Catalysts are post-conventional or self-authoring. Their relative scarcity is a reason for being marginalized. Marginalization means that those who could really make a difference lose their momentum. The real tragedy is the Integrating Catalysts who are capable of the most good, because they can act from the most complex circumstances, burn out and drop out. Having climbed the career ladder they realized it had been placed against the wrong building! If they wish to move their organizations and their life forward together, they must retrieve and integrate earlier parts of themselves and move with integrity to self expression. They must do that while engaging key support by those around. An exciting and transformative journey awaits. It is best not to undertake it alone…
