When Russ Volckmann posted an invitation to write about design thinking for ILR on a LinkedIn forum, I jumped at the chance. Seeking to understand what integralists think not just as individuals but “how we think and how we do” with emphasis on the dialogical and collaborative WE, Russ Volckmann quoted Peter H.
As the iterative and qualitative how of process innovation, integral design configurations are inclusive, empathic, transparent and contextually aware. Back in 1991, two years into my first academic appointment at New Mexico State University, I suddenly found myself in a hospital bed in the Cleveland Clinic recovering from surgery for removal of a stage IA ovarian cancer.
I teach applied ethics of design practice and philosophy of design for sustainability at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), a leading interdisciplinary and trans-media school of art and design where undergraduates declare no majors. My background in the fine arts with research expertise in craft practices and cultural innovation has allowed me to explore topics ranging from traditional ethnic practices to Martha Stewart Living, drawing me again and again through various lenses, to the intersection of craft, technology and place. Art historian Lothar Ledderose, in his Ten Thousand Things: Module and Mass Production in Chinese Art describes Chinese cultural production as a nimble sensitivity to complex modular systems design whether in language, cuisine or city planning.
Having grown up in post-industrial ‘rust belt’ Cleveland, Ohio where the polluted Cuyahoga River caught on fire in 1969, I witnessed and related to the dignities as well as the disasters resulting from the deep transitions unfolding in the explosive growth hastened by Deng Xiao Ping’s “Socialism with Chinese Characteristics”. Due to my ongoing interest in the societal changes occurring as a result of especially rapid change, I continue long-term curricular consulting with educational organizations in Asia on a range of projects in education and hybrid enterprise mostly because I continue to learn so much from China and its diaspora. Since that time I have assisted with various community-level cooperative design and entrepreneurship initiatives to facilitate resourceful responses to globalization. Design, as the conscious human willing to create and destroy, necessitates constant management of the instrumental-substantive polarity.
The Experience Economy, Wired to Care, and Emotionally Durable Design are titles of three books representing a trend that has captured the imaginations of designers who wish to re-enchant the lived experience by means of heightening awareness of our sacred role in unitive world-making. Lisa Norton, Professor, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Department of Architecture, Interior Architecture and Designed Objects. Yes, Yellow does resonate with Beige, and it is an "I" system to some degree, but the characteristics change significantly between first and second tier. As for Teal being Turquoise, I expect that there is a degree of aspiration in some people towards a holistic perspective and of course it is on the horizon, but some caution is needed. My limited understanding of SD und RO leads me to the idea, there there might be a fairly widespread confusion of states.

Yellow is the second tier beige, and in beige it is about survival, and there isn't really any organisation.
Found this through a friend and client at Zappos and very energized to read how you weave together (or reveal the earlier connections between) all these elements.
A particular pleasure to see and feel the voices of George Por and John Watters in here - good friends and colleagues.
Le Leadership Tribal nous vient d’une etude menee pendant plus de 10 ans sur plusieurs entreprises diverses. Une tribu est un groupe de 20 a 150 personnes qui se connaissent suffisamment pour se saluer lorsqu’elles se croisent dans la rue. Ce paragraphe resume brievement les principaux leviers permettant de passer d’un stade a un autre. Lui proposer des projets qu’elle peut reussir a court terme et qui necessitent peu de suivi ou surveillance. L’encourager a former des relations tryadiques (3 personnes) autour de valeurs fondamentales communes. Lui montrer que le vrai pouvoir ne provient pas de la connaissance et la detention d’informations mais des reseaux. La plupart des personnes interrogees dans le cadre de cette etude se positionnent generalement a 1 ou 2 stades au dessus de la realite.
Identifier les valeurs fondamentales et la noble cause de la tribu qui federera les membres. Recenser les comportements a adopter pour atteindre les resultats vises et verifier que les actifs permettent d’accomplir ces comportements. Si les verifications mentionnees revelent des limites (pas assez d’actifs pour atteindre les resultats vises, ou comportements inappropries), on revise les resultats ou definit des resultats intermediaires et on ajuste les comportements. Le leader devra toujours respecter les valeurs identifiees et la noble cause quitte a faire des renoncements (renoncer a un marche par exemple).
Regulierement, tous les 2 ou 3 mois par exemple, la tribu se reunit et prends le temps de faire le point. Alors que les leaders tribaux travaillent pour le bien du groupe, non pas pour eux meme, ils sont recompenses par la loyaute, le travail acharne, l’innovation et la collaboration. Une boite a outils de leadership tribal dans laquelle on peut notamment trouver un outil d’identification des valeurs fondamentales. Bonjour, je suis Florent Lothon, manager de generation Y et l'auteur des contenus de ce site.

In order to run a successful business or program a basic understanding of the numbers is essential. In this introduction, I’ve shared some of my background through stories from life and work. Designing is an action-first methodology (dialogue, prototyping) that people in business professions can witness and experience. Integral design configurations yield profound AQAL reframes, often by means of comprehensive contextual analyses.
I now look back on that surreal whirlwind as the most cherished experience of my life in that it sharpened the taste of everything, revealed what is at stake for my life, and reshaped all my life goals. Starting in 1991, I taught in the Department of Sculpture, but almost immediately faced the realization that my goals could not be attained within the art world system.
My primary role is to hold the space wherein each student may enact his or her unique brilliance. Acting on an unexpected opportunity, I ended up living my dream of an extended research leave to work between Xiamen City in southeastern Fujian Province and Beijing. China, was charged with development of divergent educational approaches appropriate for the Chinese educational context and if successful, scalable. One project involved a cultural industries model for development to extend the knowledge base of a stone carving community in Fujian Province. The tools and processes over which we have choice, as well as their situated and multivalent consequences disclose the fact that civilization is not solid but rather fluid, and the world can be otherwise. Emergent realms of designing such as experience design are highly relational, requiring empathic resonance with the subject in space and time.
As an action methodology, design gives us the capacity to put forward new propositions about our world, to give form to civic debates, to test correlations between edifices and values, and to produce new levels of care and coherence in behavioral and lifestyle domains. Professionally she consults with educational organizations on development and change in the design educational and professional contexts. And I would love to hear how do you sees the role of Sri Aurobino in early nation building og India? I look forward to sharing my voice and perspectives as I transform my personal leadership skills. It helps to classify different training cultures and understand directions for further development.
Same is my perception with yellow - we must not forget that yellow is in reaction to green - the level that took the 'we' too far. Entreprises americaines seulement mais nous allons voir que ce detail a peu d’importance car les principes qui en resultent sont universels. La prise de conscience de l’existence de ces stades et de leur caracteristiques (langage, type de relation et comportement) aident a ouvrir peu a peu (ou brutalement) les yeux sur soi.
Cette strategie doit emerger de la tribu dans son ensemble et du contexte (economique, technologique, etc) plutot que de la vision seule du leader. Dans le cas contraire, la confiance est rompue, les valeurs et noble causes bafouees et plus rien n’a de sens. Mais le pire concerne le secteur commercial au sein duquel la loi de la jungle atteint son paroxysme. Proposent un systeme au sein duquel les enfants ne sont pas infantilises mais responsabilises, ecoutes et auto-disciplines.

She worked in corporate management and training with Progressive Companies, Busch Entertainment Corporation and the National Conference for Community & Justice-Tampa Bay before establishing her own firm to consult and train in a variety of industries.

Nancy is a Certified Fraud Examiner and member of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners. Funders and donors often judge us by our financials and our ability to communicate what the numbers mean.
As I begin this column I am hoping that my contributions to Integral Leadership Review will provide a means of interpreting design thinking case studies from an integral perspective, profiling the work of some remarkable firms, and most importantly, developing a space for us to dialogue and develop useful tools. As human intentionality made actionable, design can be understood as problem boundary framing and process development. Systems thinking is abstract in action and representation, and is a concept-first type of cognitive behavior.
I regained my ability to connect to life with gratitude, a mystical knowing I had as a child, but with an altogether new sense of devotion. Always reading voraciously in critical theory, philosophy and spirituality yet still in search of ‘it’, by 1993 I had already started the long process of shifting my teaching, my practice, and my departmental affiliations from studio art into object and system design.
Objective educational goals include changing existing orthodoxies in design education and articulation of the opportunity for design practice to re-direct the objects, systems and structures of our world toward more caring ones. They include meditation, journaling, dancing, cooking and fermenting foods, listening to experimental jazz and biking. Starting in 1999, and through the period of the SARS epidemic just prior to the Beijing Olympic Games I was a full-time student of Mandarin while occupying myself otherwise with ethnographic study of the informal diffusion of local craft practices that resulted from mass migration of workers from the Western provinces to the coastal cities during that time of extreme economic growth.
It seemed as if every time I found the most amazing acupuncturist or Pockmarked Grandma’s Tofu dish (????), I’d return back some weeks later and that doctor’s office or restaurant would have been unceremoniously demolished along with its entire city block.
A key objective of this initiative was development of curricular prototypes for creative collaborations between ‘math and science’ and ‘arts and culture’ cohorts typically segregated at high-school level.
I feel so fortunate to have had direct encounters with the ‘Three T’s’, Tibet, Tiananmen and Taiwan. Design can cohere community and establish a sense of place, or produce fragmentation and alienation. Yet the most skillful design methodologies amount to nothing without conscious, heart-centered strategic intention.
And I welcome it as it reinforces what I have "suspected" or perhaps intuited - but somehow sensed simply - must be the case. Teal organisations utilize a mystic quality (organisations as manifestations of an independent higher consciousness) that comes from 2nd tier purple. And, as you allude, what a shame that SD has missed such an opportunity to become more mainstream through being overly self protective. Cette etude ne s’interesse pas a la dimension psychologique, sociologique (origine des personnes observees, culture, etc), ni meme environnementale.
Pour verifier si une personne ou tribu a atteint un nouveau stade, il suffit d’observer le langage, comportement et type de relation adoptes. La sonnerie nous dit quand nous devons changer de classe, faire une pause ou finir sa journee. Un systeme plus democratique faisant participer les eleves aux decisions qui definissent le programme et la vie de l’etablissement scolaire. To do his work, Shawn has traveled to 51 countries, speaking to farmers in Zimbabwe, CEOs in China, doctors in Dubai and schoolchildren in South Africa.
Trainer, consultant, and coach Margarita Sarmiento will explain how unconscious bias impacts our beliefs, values, and actions—and contributes to corporate cultures that either foster or quash diversity and inclusion. Turman has managed capital and endowment campaigns for the Vero Beach Museum of Art, the Polk Museum of Art, the Gulf Coast Museum of Art, the South Tampa YMCA, Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church of Clearwater. Nancy is a Summa Cum Laude graduate of the University of Wisconsin with a degree in finance. As an instrument of conscious group and systemic change, design, has awesome leadership potential.
Like Alfonso Montuori I have always been a seeker, playing many professional roles — primarily artist, designer, collaborator, colleague, student, educator, administrator, facilitator and consultant.
After co-developing and co-founding a new program, I migrated into the Department of Architecture, Interior Architecture and Designed Objects, in order to engage what I saw as the greater potential of design to engage and mediate social, ethical, economic and psychological relationships. In China, where the sweep of history feels long, and dynamic novelty is valued above all things, I studied these flows of informal know-how of the vernacular trade specialties with a view toward understanding situated ways and means that point to sustainable lifestyle patterns. My role involved facilitation of local faculty-driven curricular development for a new program in design thinking localized for South China.
I have had the opportunity in both China and Taiwan to engage with representatives of a full spectrum of economic and regional ethnicities, from esteemed scientists and academics to entrepreneurs to NGO volunteers, migrant laborers and students in settings ranging from public art projects to earthquake relief in Chengdu. How might a post-conventional designing agency model change platforms for our emergent future?
It's time surely for collaboration through and beyond the inevitability of difference and conflict.
La pedagogie est revisee pour enseigner selon des principes de cooperation plutot que de competition.
In 2014, Oprah Winfrey did a two hour interview with Shawn on the science of happiness and meaning.
Carm is widely admired for her straightforward talk and sense of humor and for offering all in her audience practical, achievable wellness strategies and solutions. Loblack has tested the methods he teaches, which resulted in his own personal accomplishments of finishing his undergraduate degree in only three years, completing his Ph.D. Nancy is also the current Chairman of the Board of Directors for the Morton Plant Mease Foundation. Too often however, the agentive power of designing is hidden in plain sight as background to the foreground complex of interrelated global Wicked Problems.
These include Reiki and other no-touch therapies and training of the clairvoyant and other faculties of psychic awareness. Another component of this project related a partnership with nearby Zhangzhou Municipality based on innovation, cultivation of sustainable eco-tourism and renewable urban cultural futures. I remain interested in the multi-directional flows of knowledge between the developed world and countries like India, Africa and China that represent a heterogeneous mix inclusive and reflective of the full spiral of worldviews and lifestyles.
Whether in the guise of city planning, technological interfaces or process models, designs tetra-arise in situated reciprocity with historical, interpersonal, experiential, economic and behavioral circumstances. It is the yellow individual growing beyond it's singularity joining hands to serve a higher evolutionary purpose. His research on happiness made the cover of Harvard Business Review, his TED talk is one of the most popular of all time with over 11 million views, and his lecture airing on PBS has been seen by millions. The crises of our times are the unintended consequences, relationally issued forth, by our collective modeling, being and making.
I hold the BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art and the MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art. From a sustainability perspective, diverse practices of daily life are living systems holding the potential for innovations retrieved from situated praxis and coupled with visionary futuring.
As a pattern and process language that can conceal or reveal the patterns that connect, design discloses the world of artifacts as contingent. Integral Theory, in its fluid embrace of everything without reduction, has enabled me to appreciate the collaborative role of designing agency in prototyping any problem worth solving. So typical yellow organisations out there are awaaz and anonymous - not much of an organisation at all.
Recognizing and creatively playing in this field of human causality is a learning edge for integral leaders. Like Mark McCaslin, I started out in the shop, doing via the body-embedded tacit knowledge of metalsmithing. Anything is possible at the intersection of post-conventional leadership and design thinking.
And on a daily breadwinning level the are freelancers, entering short term contracts at the max, or clustering in loose groups of all self employed professionals, often not even developing a common brand, avoiding to even hire a secretary. Processes like calligraphy and ancient hammering techniques were my entre into the world of cultural production and embodied methods remain a touchstone for me today. They are maxed out with taking responsibility for one's own survival, and strongly dislike the idea of 'being responsible for someone'. Globally, what key acupuncture points are most skillful in an AQAL sense, and how shall we act now? On a peer level this still allows for free cooperation networks, but in lack of alternative models of sharing work of quite different levels of skills they outsource rather than hire. I look forward to the opportunity to interpret some of the best design thinking through an integral perspective in Integral Design Leadership.
