About the Integria Group
The Integria Group is a team of business consultants with expertise in leadership development, coaching and organization development. The word “integria” is derived from the word “integrity” and describes our approach to the leadership and organizational development work that we do. Integrity is typically defined as having meaning in two dimensions: internally and externally. Internally it refers to the quality of an individual’s values and principles. Externally it refers to the demonstration of those values and principles in action. So, our work at The Integria Group helps leaders “integrate” their inner aspirations and values into effective leadership behavior.
Through our approach, leaders:
Become more aware of “conscious” of effective thought patterns
Identify thought patterns that sabotage high performance
Develop skills that build robust relationships, solve difficult problems, enhance personal engagement and create strong business results
Our conscious leadership and coaching content and philosophy also reflects the principle of integration. For example, many managers we have worked with have come into our workshops priding themselves on being able to be “brutally honest” when confronting someone. We have observed others to be so passive and respectful during a conversation that what they really think never comes out at all. We help leaders integrate these two seemingly opposite styles through a framework that enables one to be honest and respectful at the same time.
