Our Integrated Life Advocates groups provide ThirdPath Institute an opportunity to share cutting edge knowledge with a diverse group of individuals and professionals who then use this information to create wider change.

We do this by examining the “Whole System Approach to Change.” 

Topics that are addressed in the “Whole System Approach to Change” curriculum include:

  • Work Redesign – An introduction to the 4 ways work can be redesigned and how we can support clients around win-win work/career redesign.
  • Leadership Redesign – Case studies of integrated leaders are reviewed and the “21st century skills” used to succeed at work while also carving out time for life.
  • Family Redesign – Helping families find their “North Star” – their preferred approach to balancing work and family – and understanding the influences of money, time and gender.
  • Organization Change – Case studies are reviewed and the concept of “collective boundary setting” is introduced.
  • Individual Change – How to assess people’s readiness for change and understanding “tangos” – the places where husbands and wives, bosses and co-workers, sometimes get stuck when trying to make change.
  • Reflecting on our own practice – Case presentations and support around our own work life goals.

Through our Integrated Life Advocate groups, we also establish a safe and supportive environment so participants can gain insights about their own lives and the interconnection between personal change and wider change.   How do our unconscious assumptions – our tendency to over work or follow traditional roles at home – get in the way of the change work we do?  How can we learn to challenge these patterns and expand our impact?

Our Mission

Assist individuals, families and organizations in finding new ways to redesign work to create time for family, community and other life priorities. Develop a growing community of individuals, leaders and organizations to influence wider change - both within organizations and at the public policy level.
