Full Circle POV

Nurturing a holistic, integral point of view for greater leader and team effectiveness and member well-being.

Full Circle Point of View

Integral Living, Integral Success

The Full Circle Dynamics Model for Integral Living is based on the research and writings of Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) and post-Jungian researchers, such as Edward Edinger, James Hillman, June Singer, Isabel Briggs-Myers, Anthony Stephens, Murray Stein, Thomas Moore, and others. Additional influences from the organization development and other fields  include significant thinkers like Ken Wilber, Don Beck and Chris Cowan, Edgar Schein, Robert Marschak, Barry Johnson, William Isaacs, Otto Scharmer, David Cooperrider, Robert (Bob) Terry, and more.

What does life expect from us? We all set out to make our way in the world and achieve the goals of finding meaningful work and security, and satisfying interpersonal connections and family. Our success in that is impacted by our personalities and worldviews, early histories, skills development, life conditions, cultural and environmental circumstances. We understandably focus on what seems to resonate most for us, often creating problematic imbalances.

Why I Drive

What happens when we realize that our usual way isn’t enough? What do we do when those unused, left behind or denied aspects of ourselves and our lives knock at our conscious door as symptoms or enduring problems and want to be recognized and utilized, i.e. integrated?

The Full Circle Point of View is a practical, daily living and development model of the whole person (whole team) that seeks the coordinated development and integration of the four primary modes of human experience: body, mind, heart and spirit. All are necessary for optimal development and performance.

    • Body – Our physical realm: health, diet, fitness, sexuality, our financial and other resources, freedom of movement, and structures and routines that help maintain stability and security.
      Key goal: Autonomy.
    • Mind – Our mental realm: intelligence, skills, critical thinking, operating assumptions and worldview, conscious choices, complex competencies, tolerance for ambiguity/polarity thinking, cognitive processes, achievement, objectives, and power.
      Key Goal: Mastery
    • Heart – Our relational realm: emotional intelligence, relational skills with self and others, quality of connection to various social environments, teamwork, values and ethics, integration of personal (team) histories and personal (team and organizational) Shadow.
      Key goal: Relationship with self and others.
    • Spirit – Our spiritual realm: vision, higher level meaning, personal (team) mission, leadership, integration of the four realms into a unified sense of self (team) and worldview, spirit, religion or other spiritual practice, and transcendence. Multiplicity in Unity.
      Key Goal: Purpose.

These are all fully germane and applicable for well-being and success and scalable to individual, team, and organizational realms.

Life and work are more effective and satisfying when
body, mind, heart, and spirit
are all nurtured and aligned toward purpose
