We exist to nurture the development of leaders, coaches and consultants working to create thriving and life-affirming organisations, institutions and communities.
The challenges we are facing as individuals, organisations and a global community are complex and adaptive and require a new way of making sense as leaders if we are to respond effectively. A way of seeing, thinking and being that can:
More fully navigate and respond to interdependent systems,
Exercise leadership that is collaborative and
Support people to stay healthy and productive when facing uncertainty and ambiguity.
From our many years of experience in the field, we are clear that evolving these capacities requires a new approach to growth and development; an approach that focuses on ”vertical” as well as “horizontal” development. Our focus is on bringing the adult developmental perspective to the leadership, coaching and consulting community through the Leadership Maturity Framework.
We deeply appreciate the privilege it is to work with individuals and organisations engaged in their own growth and development. We recognise that while this work can be engaging and life giving, it can also be challenging, confronting and sometimes lonely.
We therefore have two distinct commitments:
To bring the lens of adult ego-developmental and the Leadership Maturity Framework to the practice of leadership, leadership development and organisational transformation and,
To establish a collaborative network of practitioners and change agents committed to supporting each other and to creating environments that honour and optimise the gifts and contribution of people at every developmental stage.
