Jay Davies, Integral Development’s consultant specialising in facilitation and team development, holds both bachelors and masters degrees in science and a postgraduate diploma in human resource management and industrial relations, is an accredited Integral 360° Leadership Coach, and has fifteen years experience in coaching and managing teams in the areas of leadership and facilitation, strategic planning, negotiation and dispute resolution. Additionally, Jay is an accredited administrator of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator.
Having successfully coached and managed Australian Olympic swimmers, Jay brings to her work a strong emphasis on high performance and strategies for success. During her time with Integral Development Jay has facilitated workshops with the Department of Corrective Services, the Bethanie Group, Clayton Utz, the Department of Health and the Western Australian Institute of Sport.
Currently, Jay is facilitating and conducting, in cooperation with Dr Ron Cacioppe, a research study inspired by Ken Wilber’s Integral Theory and the Jim Collins bestseller Good To Great (New York: HarperCollins, 2001), which explores how businesses make the transition from being good to great and why some fail to achieve ‘greatness’.
Jay will interview individuals in current positions of leadership in the United States and Europe to identify those with a global perspective, whose work vision is beyond self-interest, who are highly developed morally, ethically, emotionally, cognitively and spiritually, who have a strong presence yet humility in their actions, and who work towards a worthwhile global mission.
The aim of the research is to demonstrate a more satisfying, meaningful, fulfilling and authentic way to lead, and the project is being conducted on behalf of the not-for-profit organisation Integral Institute Australasia, in cooperation with the University of Western Australia Business School.
Subsequently, the study and its findings will be submitted for professional journal publication, and a book of case studies that exemplify the direction of leadership in the next generation will be prepared for publication.
