The integral approach works with four spaces:
- I: individually and internally; this room takes care of your own thoughts, emotions, and inner states
- WE: collectively and internally; in this area we recognize the importance of relationships and grasp an understanding of the culture
- YOU or ITs: outside and collectively; here we consider systems, structures, and the environment. AND it shows us how much we trust the system
- It: outside and individual; with this space we see the observable behavior. So, we can recognize whether we are authentic. Whether we have an objective view and see the reflection of ourselves.
The integral approach helps us to look at changes in people and organizations holistically and to promote them positively. Because everything is related to everything and that is how we see the whole picture.
Remember: Your organizational health is based on these four pillars.
