Sparks from Hames and Wilber podcast

It has been a long while since I read or heard anything that really got me excited. But a three part chat between Ken Wilber and Richard Hames set off some mind sparks.

Wilber is the prolific author and guiding light behind Integral Theory – teaching that bridges religion and psychology and has much to say about systems thinking, ethics, personal development, business, education and so much more. The value of Integral is in its clear-headed, scientific and holistic approach to both personal and community growth.

Hames is the author of Five Literacies of Global Leadership. The disciplines are very much aligned with the Integral vision for holistic personal development:Five Literacies
  • Networked Intelligence (the ability to connect with others & express the complexity of the ecosystem)
  • Futuring (the ability to visualize & imagine future possibilities)
  • Strategic Navigation (the ability to learn to adapt as fast as change itself)
  • Deep Design (the ability to create wisdom through dialogue)
  • Brand Resonance (the ability to create attention that awakens your unique value in others)

I just ordered the book and only listened to the podcast once so I’m not going to try to expand on the content now. But the thing that set off sparks was the realization that my current labour of love is a perfect vehicle for the vision described by Hames and Wilber.Mobile Process Services as planned in great detail by Brian Keedwell includes most of the elements required for holistic business transformation as envisioned by Hames and Wilber (and others). It integrates continuous learning. It embraces complexity. It depends on networked intelligence and empowered team players to respond to change with extreme agility. It is holistic and exemplifies systems thinking. And it is so radically bold in its approach, it creates a natural affinity for everyone sick and tired of business as usual.

The three part podcast is available at Integral Life: http://integrallife.com/node/75525 (The first part is free but the rest requires subscription.)
