Abstract/Summary

This study is an insider action research on the Institute for Integrality, Inc., a recently formed organization dedicated to promoting integral human development. As indicated in its corporate name, integrality or completeness is at the core of the mission of the Institute.

While the Institute is still at its foundational stage, the action researcher, who is also the founder of the institution, was faced with the challenge of aligning its various stakeholders board, management, faculty, partners, and clients through a collaborative approach to building an authentic organizational identity. This core action research started with defining and developing the concept of integrality, followed by a fine-tuning of identity and the design of an identity-based organizational culture.

Meanwhile, the thesis action research focused on the process of organizational identity building through which an integrative theory, alongside other relevant contributions to knowledge, was derived and developed. Through meta-learning, transformative learning was found to be the best route to building organizational identity and culture, given its two powerful mechanisms of critical self-reflection and discourse.
