Phenomenology and Integral Pheno‐Practice of Wisdom in Leadership and Organization

Phenomenology and Integral Pheno‐Practice of Wisdom in Leadership and Organization This paper investigates the multidimensional phenomenon of wisdom in organizations and management as an integral and relational process. In particular, the paper will show how phenomenology can help to render an extended understanding of the “incorporated” dimensions of wisdom situated in organizations and managerial life‐world practises. Based on this, an integral (and holonic) pheno‐practice of wisdom in organisations will be proposed. Accordingly the interior and exterior dimensions as well as individual and collective spheres of wisdom are assessed together. Furthermore, the interconnected processes of intentional, behavioural, cultural and systemic domains of wisdom can be integrated. Following a processual turn, a dynamic and decentred perspective on wisdom will be developed by which it is interpreted as an emerging and inter‐relational event. Finally, theoretical and practical implications and further research on a more integrated understanding of wisdom are discussed. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Social Epistemology Taylor & Francis

Abstract

This paper investigates the multidimensional phenomenon of wisdom in organizations and management as an integral and relational process. In particular, the paper will show how phenomenology can help to render an extended understanding of the “incorporated” dimensions of wisdom situated in organizations and managerial life‐world practises. Based on this, an integral (and holonic) pheno‐practice of wisdom in organisations will be proposed. Accordingly the interior and exterior dimensions as well as individual and collective spheres of wisdom are assessed together. Furthermore, the interconnected processes of intentional, behavioural, cultural and systemic domains of wisdom can be integrated. Following a processual turn, a dynamic and decentred perspective on wisdom will be developed by which it is interpreted as an emerging and inter‐relational event. Finally, theoretical and practical implications and further research on a more integrated understanding of wisdom are discussed.
