The purpose of this article is to show readers around in our master course “Integral Leadership for Sustainability” at Wageningen University and Research Centre in the Netherlands. This course is an example of how an integral approach can be applied in higher education to achieve both a higher level of understanding of complex issues as well as create sustainable action in the world.
"We are not unlike a particularly hardy crustacean....With each passage from one stage of human growth to the next we, too, must shed a protective structure. We are left exposed and vulnerable, but also yeasty and embryonic again, capable of stretching in ways we hadn't known before." – Gail Sheehy

Without such leadership, organisations and their managers will be subject to forces beyond their understanding and control which they will experience as fate.
