  1. 1. M AY 1 9 , 2 0 0 7 WELCOME TO INTEGRAL INSTITUTE FOR MEMBERS ONLY
  2. 2. How and why? • How do we take a comprehensive and multi-faceted theoretical metaphysics … … and turn it into a useful set of tools and practices for use by a worldwide community? • How do we build an organization with world-class content generation and distribution capabilities … … and a wonderful community of committed practitioners? • Why should Integral Institute – or any of its offshoots – even exist? FOR MEMBERS ONLY 2
  3. 3. What Does it Mean to be Integral Institute? • A special privilege – Stewardship of a special body of knowledge and practice – Precious community of integral contemplatives the world needs to hear – Tens of thousands of participants seeking to help us be the change we seek – One of the world’s first conscientiously 2nd tier organizations – Opportunity to have far-reaching, long-lasting impact – Care and feeding of the dedicated lives with which we have been entrusted • A daunting challenge – Structure with enough agency to be effective, enough communion to grow – Honor wisdom and luminosity in what we do and how we do it – Accept that when we are successful, we will be transcended – Balance sustainability (profit) with service (intention) FOR MEMBERS ONLY – Be open-minded when complexity emerges, close-minded with chaos – One of the world’s first conscientiously 2nd tier organizations 3

  13. 13. Strategy Considerations • Integral is a very broad platform • Trying to do everything, for all people, at the same time will lead to doing nothing well, and failure – Don’t be afraid to quit certain segments to focus energy on remaining ones – Focus on Member Delight in every segment • Integral is the leading human technology platform • The best technology is the one lots of people actually use • Better ideas don’t spread themselves; better execution does FOR MEMBERS ONLY 13

  16. 16. Statements of Benefit • Many ways to categorize people’s needs, desires and drives, and the Integral map includes virtually all of them • At the core, regardless of level of development, we’re here to: Transcendence “Grow through a creative advance into novelty” Agency Communion “Eliminate suffering “Find meaning and a through radical freedom community of awakened and presence” people” FOR MEMBERS ONLY Inclusion “Heal fragmentation with a Pattern that connects” 16

  19. 19. MEMBER DELIGHT FOR MEMBERS ONLY 19
  20. 20. • Philosophy – Give love, creatively, imaginatively, generously, always – It is impossible to over-service our members – It is impossible to make our services too convenient or too easy to use – Our service level is a direct reflection of who we are and how we live our values, and we take it very personally – Member Delight personnel are doing the most important job in the Company FOR MEMBERS ONLY 20
  21. 21. Summary • Our intentions are service, love and generosity • Let’s co-create Integral … • 2007 is a year of building • We’ll first focus on building a distribution platform that everyone in the Integral community can use • We’ll be equal parts media company and association with community-on-fire throughout • But our execution and discipline will be fierce • All we need from you is patience (and feedback: what inspires FOR MEMBERS ONLY you?) 21
