#11: Rob McNamara — Inhabiting Our Unconditioned Completeness and Adequacy
Episode description and synopsis
Guiding our communities to greater coherence requires leaders less armed with strategies and techniques, but with the courage of the heart to navigate and move with the broader complexities of human experience. Rob is someone I’ve admired from afar for his nuanced and articulate understanding and insight into navigating paradox, participatory leadership and facilitating regenerative social spaces.
In this conversation we explore the roots of inadequacy, the paradox of completeness and the foundations of integral leadership. It’s a wide-ranging conversation that includes many practical tools for integrating these perspectives into our everyday living and leading.
