Many theories inform our approach with core ones including Integral and Ontological.

Integral Theory

Integral brings together some of the best thinking in the world across many fields through an integral map. “Integral” refers to an inclusive, balanced, comprehensive view.


Forming a more integrated view by bringing together four lenses:

  1. Our individual inner
    thoughts and emotions
  2. Our individual outward behaviour
  3. Our collective inner world such as shared culture
  4. Our collective external world such as environment


Understanding and growing our whole selves by getting in touch with who we are, as expressed through a personality profile such as the Enneagram. The Enneagram profiles nine different personality types with 27 sub-types, and has been developed over centuries. It is often used in leadership development today.


Capturing how we see ourselves and the world around us and the extent to which we are open to other perspectives. Like climbing a mountain – as we go higher we have wider perspectives and more routes and options available to us. Research shows that leaders at later stages of development have more capacity to navigate complexity.

Ontological Theory

This refers to the nature of being and involves three key aspects that shape how we show up: language, mood and posture. When we repurpose old ways that keep us stuck, into more constructive language, mood and posture, so much becomes possible.


There are many methodologies and practices we use, depending on the context and what’s needed. Here are a couple to give you a flavour.

Time to think

The premise here is that everything we do depends on the thinking we do first. And our thinking is influenced by the conditions in our environment.

Three key components cultivate a rich environment for thinking:

  1. Attention (where we resist the temptation to listen to respond, rather listening to understand)
  2. Equality (where everyone gets equal turns to contribute)
  3. Ease (which comes as a result of attention and equality)

“The quality of your attention determines the quality of other people’s thinking.”

Nancy Kline

Vertical Development

This refers to upward growth to a new stage of development where we expand our capacity to think, feel, and act in more complex and adaptive ways.

Vertical transformation requires three conditions:

  1. Heat experiences: Intense stretch experiences or immersions that open up learning
  2. Colliding perspectives: Seeking out perspectives that are different to your own
  3. Elevated sense-making: Making sense of experiences, learning new lessons and reconfiguring identity

“Leaders who display the most vertical range or flex across stages are the highest performers.”
