CEO: TEN DIRECTIONS | CO-FOUNDER: INTEGRAL FACILITATOR®

Rebecca is a talented integral facilitator, strategist and coach, co-creator of Integral Facilitator programs, and the Founder and CEO of Ten Directions. For over thirty years she has been facilitating and inspiring others to practice facilitative leadership and meet the challenges of a wide range of cultural and social issues.

After earning her Masters of Business Administration in 1992, she founded Fourth Wave Strategy Inc., an integrally informed strategic management firm. Over the last two decades, Rebecca has become a well-known innovator for design and facilitation of multi-stakeholder strategy development and multi-disciplinary projects that cross organizational boundaries in public, private and not-for-profit sectors in North America. She has led many “firsts” in system and organizational initiatives related to better futures for health, energy, design in business, culture production, natural and cultural heritage, and economic development. 

Looking back, she’s always been an evolutionary entrepreneur at heart, founding Open Field, an integral leadership development practice for women, and Dragonfly Outfitters, a five year initiative designed to provide youth leadership development, and community-oriented paddling experiences and outfitting to promote experiencing more of our natural world. 

Rebecca’s warm, playful and irreverent style is grounded in her deep trust of what is, and a tenacious curiosity about what might be possible. Rebecca is an ordained monk in the Soto Zen tradition. As a certified Integral development coach, she offers this presence and perspective to developing leaders and leadership teams.
