We are in the sixth year of publication of the Integral Leadership Review. It is increasingly taking the form that I hoped, although I am sure there is still much that can be done to make this a useful document that attracts a wider audience in the fields of consulting, training and coaching, as well as among business and other organizational leaders who have a passion for leadership. In fact, we are committed to evolving this epublication and its resources as a center for discourse and learning about leadership through an integral lens.

I am grateful to the 1349 subscribers to Integral Leadership Review. Your support means that we can move closer to a way of viewing and being in the world that is integrative, generative and supportive of our evolving integrity – learning to align our theory and our action, our values and assumptions with achieving what is important to us. Also, I am grateful to the many kindnesses, suggestions and offers of support we have received.

The mission of this e-publication is to be a practical guide to the application of an integral perspective to the challenges of leadership in business and life and to the effective relationship between executive/business coaches, consultants and their clients. My vision includes that this will be a place where we can continue to develop and share ideas about Integral Leadership and integral coaching, particularly in their application. That vision is being realized.
