ENACT serves a variety of clientele. Below are some overlapping categories of the kinds of individuals who benefit from ENACTs services. Of course the main criteria of whether ENACT can support you in your own integral aspirations is simply do you want to be successful in applying integral principles to your personal and/or professional life. If the answer is "yes" then ENACT can work with you to enact integral in your life!
As a full Professor who has drawn on the principles of Integral Theory since the beginning of my academic career I know the challenges and successes of Integral in the Ivory Tower. I have built and taught over 30 integral courses in a variety of subjects. I have taught in 4 different programs (on campus and online) in two different universities. I have founded the first graduate program explicitly in Integral Theory. I design two annual "residential intensives" for students and faculty. I have published many articles, book chapters, and books all of which are based on Integral Theory. As an editor I publish many other academics through the Journal of Integral Theory and Practice and the SUNY Press series in Integral Theory. I also co-organize the biennial Integral Theory Conference (ITC). As a result of all of these activities I'm quite aware of the issues that academics face in bringing Integral principles into their classes, courses, and curriculum. I've served many academics in Being Integral Doing.
I love theory! I love practice! I love placing theory into action! I love action that changes the contours of a great theory. Integral Theory places equal emphasis on having a good map (like AQAL) and having skillful means in the world. How to translate the principles of Integral Theory into action or how to allow action to inform theory is not always easy or clear. Having worked actively in the fields of Integral Ecology, Integral Research, Integral Coaching, and Integral Education, I have a wealth of experience to support scholar-practitioners. In fact, one of the things I love the most about Integral Theory is its equal emphasis on both poles. Thus, linking scholarship and practice is one of my specialties.
There are a lot of executives - CEOs, VPs, as well as department heads and organizational founders etc who I work with. This is some of the most exciting work I do in that these individuals are often applying Integral principles at a large scale in a way that has long term potential and advantage. These individuals love Integral and are often trying to find more effective ways to apply and communicate the theory to their board, their colleagues, their employees, and their clients. They are in positions of corporate or organizational power and are able to use their leadership to really bring Integral Theory forward in powerful and innovative ways in their companies and organizations. I do a lot of work oversees in countries like Russia and Brazil with the leadership of emerging Integral companies.
Almost everyone I work with is either in a formal leadership role or provides unmistakable leadership to those around them. They are leaders in their families, communities, or countries. They are leaders in their organizations, schools, and companies. These are individuals with a sense of vision and action who draw on Integral principles to support them in being able to most fully serve the people and causes most dear to them.
One of my specialties is working with Integral leaders - those individuals who are often well known in the integral community and who are doing cutting edge application work in some area such as design, embodiment, healthcare, or sustainability. What makes working with these individuals so exciting is that they have altitude and aptitude. In other words they have a profound level of vertical development and horizontal integration along side a powerful skill set in some area. In many ways these are the engineers and catalysts of cultural evolution and development. These are planetary beings who are providing a profound service to all of us through their unique Being Integral Doing. Working with and serving these individuals gives me the distinct pleasure of having a direct global impact.
I've never stopped being a student. In fact, the reason I became a professor was so I could teach the courses I wanted to take. So I have a special love for and appreciation of undergraduate and graduate students who are struggling against traditional institutional structures to incorporate Integral Theory in their education. Working with students is always such a pleasure and as a result I reserve a few lower-fee spots for individuals who can benefit from the services of ENACT.
