Summary: 

This next article will attempt to answer the BIG question … what is the map for the Vertical Development path? Put simply, how do I mature as a experience, motivation, and support. In fact, we have found that maturing vertically as a leader comes with exploration, experience, and effort in four specific forms:

  • Challenge from different and sometimes conflicting perspectives, emotions, and dynamics.
  • Catalytic experiences that involve risk, loss, or require significant shifts in your way of approaching life.
  • Conditions that provide scaffolding or support for approaching things in new ways.
  • Courage to let your self be changed. This courage often comes from the clarity about what matters most.

Part of Jan Rybeck's Vertical Development series:
Vertical Development is about expanding and deepening our capacity to see, understand, empathize, and respond in a diversity of situations. As we grow and evolve in this way, our experience of self, others, and the world shifts, leading to new ways of doing and being, that in turn lead to other changes that we cannot always foresee.
