Title of contribution:

To stay or to leave

Where & when:


To stay or to leave

Or how to use your emotions as a guide in dealing with resistance in organizations

Many of us know the ambivalence, when we are in a situation (be it a customer project or our own organization) where we meet a lot of resistance and we don’t feel we can do much about it. Should we leave or stay? What are the criteria for one or the other choice? What can we do if we like to stay but just feel powerless and ineffective? How can we work with the situation to unlock the potential in us and in the organization?

In the perspective of the organization it might be good if people with an integral understanding don’t quit the job because they feel uncomfortable and unappreciated, but rather stay, bear the tension and keep shining the light and the understanding and give the time and space for the organization to evolve in its own speed. But there are situations where the organization is not willing or not capable of evolving and in such a case our staying might be a waste of energy.

 Most of us know such situations. We would like to explore more deeply our emotions and how we can use them as a guide and learn more about ourselves, how to evolve personally and become more effective in the organization.

 Format of the workshop

We start with a short overview of the integral map. To work on the subject we will do several guided working groups, using the map and evaluating your own personal situation and organization applying the concepts and discussing them in small teams
