These are not skills or knowledge that can be learned in a classroom or webinar. They are capacities that come from building emotional, intellectual, and even physical and spiritual awareness and capabilities.
Vertical Leadership Development (VLD), also known as Adult Stage Development or Adult Development Theory, and Ego Construct Development, provides a scaffolding for understanding and working with this profound process of capacity building.
And while VLD is not new, it is more relevant than ever before.
Vertical Leadership Development is about building capacities to see, understand, empathize, and respond in a greater variety of ways and in response to a range of situations.
This series is compromised of 3 live webinars and 3 live discussion groups and has 4.5 CEUs pending ICF approval. In order to receive CEUs you will need to attend all of the webinars live.
