What We believe

Our ideals guide everything that we do.

We believe

that both personal and organizational transformation happens best when our work is integrated—that we are able to bring our whole selves forward consistently and authentically. 

We strive to be true to Our Ideals in every interaction.

At Integrated Work, we live, lead, and operate from these principles:

We will always treat you as Human, First

We put our humanity and that of our clients, in all its diversity, first in all that we do.  We know that we all do our best work when we can be our best selves and bring compassion and a sense of humor to all that we do. 

We engage our partners and each other with a Heart of Service 

We operate from loving care for ourselves, our clients, and our mission.  We do good work in ways that feel good to us and those we partner with. 

We act from Integrity, Always 

We are both candid and caring in every interaction. Dishonesty is never nice, and pettiness is never effective. We tell the truth with love because it deepens trust and lays the foundation for greater impact. 

We partner with you to Amplify your Impact

We do this work to make the world a better place.  We integrate diverse ideas, perspectives, and values to create greater impact. We win by evolving the art and science of leadership to help our clients make a bigger difference. 

We Grow Together alongside our clients in every engagement

We believe that growth happens best in community and in context.  We work side-by-side with our clients, colleagues, and partners to build our collective capacity to make an extraordinary difference.  We are in it together in every way. 

We strive daily to live and lead The JEDI Way 

We celebrate differences as a source of strength, creativity, and innovation. We acknowledge our collective history and are committed to building a better future. We center principles of Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in everything we do. 

Living our ideals in practice

In 2020, we began a journey to self-management that will allow us to live ever more fully into these ideals. Building on models like holacracy, sociocracy, and Teal organizations, we operate as a Kind, Open, Adaptive, Network, or KOAN. You can learn more about the KOAN concept here.

The Gifts of Gratitude

The Gifts of Gratitude

The premise of this time of Thanksgiving is about celebrating the bounty in one’s life and giving gratitude for the things we have been blessed with. While the origins of the holiday itself and some of the ways it continues to be celebrated are fraught, there are also new traditions being imagined and other emphases for our gratitude. Seth Godin’s Thanksgiving Reader is one example and Oprah has compiled this list of 30 traditions to try with your family, while this article from Cultural Survival highlights strategies for decolonizing and honoring native peoples on Thanksgiving and throughout indigenous peoples’ month.

Beyond “Happy Holidays”: Religious Inclusivity in the Workplace

Beyond “Happy Holidays”: Religious Inclusivity in the Workplace

Religion can feel like a forbidden topic in the workplace, but it’s an important aspect of who we are and how we relate to each other. There are many ways that we can incorporate conversations about religion into our workplaces to help us connect more authentically, build belonging, and set a strong foundation for working together. As we get into the practice of expanding our awareness of religious and cultural practices, we can change our attitudes and take action to create workplaces that are inclusive of people of all religious backgrounds.
