What is Vertical Development?

Vertical Development is the expansion of our psychological, cognitive, emotional, and spiritual maturity to perceive, interpret and integrate ever-increasing subtlety and complexity in the world, and make decisions and lead others to take inspired action increasingly for the benefit of all people, the planet, and all of life over more extensive time horizons.

The paradigm shift from one Person Perspective (PP) to the next, is a quantum shift in consciousness and leadership capacity. Maturing into each new PP is like getting an upgrade in the inner operating system of our holistic self gradually incorporating heart, mind, body, and soul. This is later stage Vertical Development.

Broadening our capacity to integrate new knowledge is like adding new apps to our current operating system. This  horizontal development, while valuable, is quite different. StageSHIFT specialises in Vertical Evolution that incorporates horizontal breadth yet expands consciousness beyond everyday norms.

A Global Community of StageSHIFT Coaches at Synergist and Alchemist

Transformative coaching in vertical leadership development to later stages takes the lid off the latent growth potential of strategic leaders and promises significantly better and faster systemic outcomes in resolving today’s complex challenges. 

The global community of StageSHIFT Coaches promise a proven accelerated pathway to this later stage of visionary, inspiring, purposeful leadership at Synergist and onto the transpersonal Alchemist, attained by less than 10% of executives.

The StageSHIFT coaching approach is based on a research study where 80% of the strategic leaders shifted one stage after 8 coaching sessions to either Catalyst or Synergist while 20% made a double StageSHIFT from Achievist to Synergist.

These findings indicate that Synergist leadership capacity lies latent, dormant, ready for ignition with proven transformative coaching in vertical leadership development.

A Proven Master Track 4 times more effective in 10% of the time invested

In terms of Vertical Development, only leaders who hold their active Centre of Gravity at conscious Synergist and beyond, can rise above systemic disruption, build collaborative partnerships, and lead eco-systemic renewal. Yet only 8% of executive leaders profile here and their proportion has been growing at the snail's pace of 1% per decade (PwC-Harthill).

A research study showed that 30% of participants in a deliberately developmental program shifted to a later stage following >20-days in offsite leadership programs (Vincent, 2015). In contrast, most participants at intensive 20-day retreat-type Integral Leadership Programs generally shift a stage in one year (Brown).

This level of time investment contrasts with an 8-session StageSHIFT Coaching Program (2-days instead of 20) where 80% of the strategic leaders engaged shifted one stage in one year, while the other 20% shifted two stages to Synergist (Braks, 2020).

StageSHIFT promises swift vertical outcomes based on our evidence-based research findings. We offer a distinctive value proposition that integrates strategic leadership with enterprise evolution and holistic leadership that goes to the heart of cultivating a new conscious identity at a later stage while resolving shadow dilemmas from earlier stages, to realise latent potential.
