VERTICAL HOLISTIC TRANSFORMATIVE COACHING

SYSTEMIC STRATEGIC SCAFFOLDING

INTEGRATIVE CONSCIOUS EVOLUTION

SYNERGIST Leaders are wise, bold, purposeful, systemic leaders. They can cut through complexity, lead with confidence despite volatility, and can build and sustain a high engagement, high performance, psychologically safe, innovative, sustainable, collaborative organization. 

They integrate the polarities of technology and people, integrity and pragmatism, humility and boldness. Their elevated level of consciousness and absence of ego enables them to partner with all stakeholders in inspiring ways to realize purposeful visionary widespread community outcomes across their socio-economic ecosystem. They can lead us to create a new and better world.

INVEST IN EXPANDING YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS

Organizations need this new upper level of Synergist leaders for us to evolve and learn to thrive and flourish in today's complex and disruptive world. As a StageSHIFT Coach at Synergist, you'll be able to guide your clients to evolve and mature at Synergist.

As you integrate and embody the many multifaceted StageSHIFT models, frameworks, techniques, and processes, you'll be able to renew your strategic leadership of your coaching practice; cultivate your self and heal shadow psychodynamics to expand your coaching presence; and find and articulate your authentic Voice to lead a more fulfilling, meaningful, and purposeful life. 

Our Signature 9-Module 12-month Program takes you explicitly through the research-based 8 Drivers of Vertical Holistic Leadership Development to take your own journey to mature Synergist. While enabling your conscious growth, you develop a deep understanding of the StageSHIFT technology so you can offer the same liberating and enriching journey to your clients.

There are some 20 pp of content for each Module, and 20 * 1¾-hr. Discovery Dialogues which take a deep dive into the content and its application to yourself and your coaching practice. There are also 9 Peer Collaborations and 9 Assignments to articulate, explore, integrate, and embody your learning.

#1 STRATEGY

This Module sets up the Systemic Strategic Scaffolding to facilitate your own and an executive leader’s Strategic Intent to build a more Conscious Sustainable Business e.g., how to re-imagine their place in the world, create a Visionary Purpose, a set of Evolutionary Values, and Aspirational Developmental INTENTION to infuse all with conscious growth.

#2 SYMMETRY

This Module facilitates the cascade of Strategic Intent throughout the organization by way of Business Team Charters including a balanced EQUIP Team Scorecard that you create for your coaching business. It includes an outline of Value Creation Processes across CXO and functional roles, and how to expedite quantum shifts in business performance.

#3 SYNCHRONY

This Module explores the interweaving concepts of time and energy to significantly uplift the creative engagement of strategic leaders and their leadership teams. It flows into the development of a Dynamic Operating Rhythm that orchestrates engagement throughout the organization and includes Liberating Meeting Agendas to lift accountability.

#4 SERENITY

This Module focuses on our inner being, our mindset and moodset, in relation to positive psychology, emotional awareness, conscious mindfulness, neuroscience and wellbeing. It recommends more authentic and respectful forms of self-expression to revise and reframe our internal voices and default responses while building relationships with others.

#5 SHADOW

This Module explains emotional triggers, transference, reactive patterns, and throw-away lines in the context of shadow resolution. While we’re aware of the different parts of the brain and the sabotaging effect of the amygdala, few transcend emotional resilience to resolve, heal, and eliminate the personal shadow at the source of our INTERACTIONS.

#6 STORY

This Module invites a Vertical Holistic Life Review to understand our history, redesign our identity, and shape a new destiny by reviewing, revising, and reframing our own narrative. It sets the context of storytelling for deeper more transformative meaning making, drawing on interpersonal, role and family dynamics, archetypes, and ancestral themes.

#7 STANDARDS

This Module invites the presence of leadership while engaging with others, for oneself and on behalf of the people we lead and partner with. Setting and holding standards, boundaries and priorities create psychological safety for self and others to uplift an organization’s culture and increase the level of conscious engagement and collaborative innovation. 

#8 SIGNATORY

This Module inspires you to articulate your Voice to give the highest expression to your intrinsic purpose in life and business, and similarly, to guide your executive clients. We review the structure and tenor of presentations from Ted Talks to conferences. The 12 P’s of Living Signature Presentations enable you to create a Masterpiece-in-Progress.

#9 SYNERGY

This Module completes the Program in the light of developing the prescience of inspiring Synergist Leadership. It extends strategic leadership to the wider community to proactively build a bigger audience and/or broader Stakeholder Collaborative Engagement to realize long-term uplifting sustainable outcomes across the surrounding ecosystem.

VERTICAL EVOLUTION

 

This StageSHIFT Vertical Transformative Coaching Certification Program has been running for over 5 years and there are more than 50 Certified Coaches. It is based on the research findings that led to strategic leaders evolving from high performing executive leaders at Achievist, to shift to Catalyst and embody the quantum leadership capacity of Synergist in just 1-2 years.

The Program enables Coaches to undertake their own evolutionary journey to mature Synergist, while gaining the VHLD expertise, StageSHIFT technology and personal experience to enable their executive clients to accelerate their journeys through your inspiration and guidance. It is based on the premise that this latent capacity is already present amongst leaders today yet is inhibited by the conventional structural norms found in most organizations. The Program integrates the expansion of consciousness with culture evolution.

You'll be able to confidently guide executive leaders on how to uplift their leadership capacity and their organization with proven strategic frameworks and collaborative engagement processes. The cascading effect of this technology raises the level of empowered accountability throughout the leader’s area of responsibility. This enables them to rise to their own potential, lead and sustain a culture evolution to Green/Teal, and, in time, lead the design and realization of healthier and more equitable socioeconomic ecosystems.

You’ll develop the confidence of a Transformative Coach moving beyond the limitations of the clean, open inquiry of Developmental Coaching. While valuable, the expanded consciousness of a calm, clear, open, more expansive mind, and new understanding of the subtle intricacies of the holistic Self and shadow psychodynamics, enables you to courageously guide your clients with deeper insights and revelations.

INTRODUCTION TO...

StageSHIFT VERTICAL HOLISTIC LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

 

VERTICAL LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT PSYCHOLOGY

THE STRUCTURE OF StageSHIFT VERTICAL EVOLUTION

THE NATURE OF StageSHIFT VERTICAL EVOLUTION

THE FOUNDATIONS OF VERTICAL EVOLUTION

There are three parts in this Module introducing you to the broad scope of VHLD and the StageSHIFT approach to inspiring and accelerating the journey to mature Synergist. It provides you with a political and topographical map of the terrain so you will appreciate the context for the StageSHIFT Vertical Holistic Transformative Coaching Certification Program outlined above.

Each of the 3 parts includes comprehensive 20-p RADAR notes and inquiry for you along with video highlights, to familiarize yourself with the content. They are each followed by a Live Group Discovery Dialogue, Peer Collaboration, and Assignment to articulate and  integrate your learning.

This Program is a pre/co-requisite of the above StageSHIFT Coaching Certification Program. You can opt for an intensive learning experience over 3 weeks in April, or a more extended one over six weeks in Nov/Dec 2023.

This Program also includes a Vertical Holistic Leadership Profile, our automated and relatively sophisticated capability-based self-assessment, between Modules 2 and 3. 

#1 THE PSYCHOLOGY OF VERTICAL DEVELOPMENT

We provide you with a brief history of the Lines and Levels in VHLD including Motives, Means, Morals, Memes, and Mind. We outline the sequence of Stages, Perspectives, and Tiers that illuminate the 2-Step Square Dance. It offers a view of the pivotal point in our current evolution.

#2 THE STRUCTURE OF VERTICAL DEVELOPMENT

This element explores the Holistic Spectrum StageSHIFT, and interconnects the Human Faculties of Self-Expression and the Energy Fields of our Conscious Life Experience in the StageSHIFT Holistic Energy Operating System. We review the evolving organizational context. 

#3 THE NATURE OF VERTICAL DEVELOPMENT

We share the StageSHIFT Research Findings in terms of the Integral AQAL Pathway providing the Systemic and Spiritual context for VHLD. We set out the 8 Drivers, 3 Principles, and 5 Active Ingredients in Vertical Transformative Coaching, concluding with the mythic spiral Hero's Journey.

THE VERTICAL HOLISTIC LEADERSHIP PROFILE

We invite you to undertake the Vertical Holistic Leadership Profile so you can gain a more granular understanding of executive leadership-in-action at the progressive Stages of development. It's an automated, capability-based self-assessment instrument based on our VHLP Model incorporating:

  • 6 Levels of Development from Specialist to Alchemist;
  • 5 Leads in Development: Mindset, Motive, Meme, Means, and Mode;
  • 4 Lines of Development: AQ - Action Orientation, EQ - Emotional Awareness, MQ - Mindful Attention, and SQ - Spiritual Congruence; and
  • 3 Limits of Development: Offence, Defence, and Absence.

The 40p VHLP Report offers a great summary of VHLD and a workbook to discover your own resonance with the material.

You can also register for the VHLP Assessment Certification Program that is designed to complement the Vertical Coaching Certification Program. By completing all three Programs in one year, you will be fully set to offer the Vertical Assessment and Transformative Coaching to your executive clients.

Go to the link below to find out more about the VHLP Certification Program and to register for all three Programs at once: Introduction to Vertical Development, the StageSHIFT Vertical Transformative Coaching Certification, and the VHLP Assessment Certification.

These Programs welcome you to the global StageSHIFT Coaching Community. You can continue your journey in the future with StageSHIFT D-E-E-P-E-R Coaching Supervision and Evolution, and advanced programs such as the Vertical Systemic Team Dynamics Coaching Certification.
