There is a special place for Integral Process Leadership within spiritual communities. My own experience in the Christian tradition heavily influenced the writing of The Merlin Advantage and the IPL approach as I discovered many of the innate attributes and learned skillsets of Integral Process Leaders align with the biblical, prophetic identity (see A.J. Heschel, 1962). These impassioned and discerning empaths served as historic allies, coaches, and critics of leaders. Indeed, as Carl Jung said, “Without introverted intuition there would be no prophets in Israel.” And yet, spiritual communities often struggle to effectively identify and leverage this ancestral gifting within their own walls. As in ancient times, this leads to negative impacts on people and cultures.
The IPL-RP helps spiritual communities return this rare personality, skillset, and scope of work to its historical and conceptual home. And, while I cannot say for sure that Integral Process Leaders hear the Divine voice as described in the Old Testament, they still serve as modern day stewards of psychological safety, critical thinking, transparency, ethical behavior, healthy culture, and generative dialogue.
