THE VERTICAL HOLISTIC LEADERSHIP PROFILE (VHLP) ASSESSMENT CERTIFICATION FOR COACHES
An Inspiring Vertical Self-Assessment for Senior Executives
The standard Vertical Assessment is based on the Sentence Completion Test. However, it is not representative of leadership capabilities in organizations. Further, most 360 capability-based assessment instruments, and most Leadership Models in organizations, plateau at Catalyst, early 4th Perspective.
StageSHIFT has developed a capability-based Vertical Holistic Leadership Self-Assessment that ranges from Specialist to Alchemist. Just this fact alone broadens an executive's understanding of their potential to be an effective, transformative, quantum leader at the most senior levels in an organization.
It's also relatively sophisticated integrating 6 Levels of Leadership, 5 Leads in the practice of Leadership, 4 Lines of Leadership, and 3 Limits in Leadership. There are a total of 156 capabilities including shadow elements. The Assessment and Reporting process is fully automated.
The 40p VHLP Report provides a comprehensive summary of Vertical Development for Leaders and Organizations; identifies their top seven Strengths, Stressors, Blind Spots, and Stretches; enables them to set leadership aspirations in a format that fuels their evolution; and provides lots of tips to foster their continuing evolutionary journeys.
Rather than focusing on capability-gap analysis at 3rd Perspective, the Discovery Debrief offers a thematic resonance approach to distil the essential developmental levers for the individual executive. This is much more conducive to vertical development at 4th Perspective.
Ignite Vertical Awareness
Take an inspiring approach focused on realizing latent potential to stimulate vertical growth.
There are two Programs:
Introduction to StageSHIFT VHLD
The VHLP Certification Program
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 for yourself with a Discovery Debrief.
#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.
While self-assessment could be said to be less accurate, it is more resonant, efficient, and effective for senior executives. It takes much less organizational time than a 360 instrument, and given that most 360s plateau at the level of Catalyst, they don’t provide any impetus to develop more mature leadership capabilities at Synergist through to Alchemist.
While the Vertical Sentence Completion Assessments could be said to be objective, a comparison of a very small sample of three WUSCT assessments found that they diverged. There was a 77% divergence in the scoring of the same Sentence Completions between the GLP and LDP; 60% between the LDP and STAGES; and 39% between the GLP and STAGES assessments.
Despite the scoring divergence, the SCT profiles do provide deeper revelation of shadow that is also valuable if you take a Transformative Coaching approach in your Executive Coaching Programs. Find out more about this in our StageSHIFT Vertical Transformative Coaching Certification Program.
StageSHIFT's POST-CONVENTIONAL APPROACH
THE VHLP CERTIFICATION & DISCOVERY DEBRIEF
THE VHLP MODEL FOR ORGANIZATIONS
THE PREBRIEF AND DEBRIEF PROCESSES
THE VHLP UNIQUE VALUE PROPOSITION
RAISING SELF-AWARENESS AND IGNITING LEADERSHIP ASPIRATIONS
The StageSHIFT post-conventional approach to Vertical Leadership Assessment is inspiring and resonant for executive leaders. It aligns role levels in organizations with stages of Vertical Development for leaders creating an intrinsic understanding of what's relevant, what's next and what's possible.
The structure of the VHLP Assessment Instrument, the focus of the VHLP Report and included workbook, and the nature of the VHLP Discovery Debrief, together offer a streamlined, efficient, effective, and inspiring approach to raising the self-awareness of senior executives, inviting them to articulate personally customized leadership aspirations, and igniting their evolution.
The VHLP Certification Program includes 2 VHLP Assessments for two client executives. This enables you to quickly recoup your investment. After the Program, you are welcome to join our series of 10 VHLP Discovery Dialogues in the following year on a complimentary basis. This provides support in reviewing your VHLP Reports and Continuing Education in VHLD.

"My VHLP Discovery Debrief session was exactly what I needed. I had been seeking answers and tools in a variety of different places to pull myself forward to my next step. I was fascinated and inspired by the way it systemized and helped me see the patterns very clearly. It gave me a deeper explanation for a lot of the issues that I was facing, as well as concrete and practical actions to further my development. In short it was like being recognized for who I really am and thus every comforting word and clear action rang crystal clear in every part of my being.”
JHN, Senior Talent Executive, Oatly
"The Vertical Holistic Leadership Profile was the best, most useful piece of reading I have ever done. I read it cover to cover three times. My own results aside, I learned so much about what leadership really means. I found the “Holistic” approach especially enriching – it goes well beyond the most evolved leadership concepts I have come across so far."
NSB, Senior Executive Leader, Ingram Micro
"The ability to draw out insights from my VHLP in a clear and encouraging manner greatly increased my awareness of myself as a leader. From the outset the questions posed in the VHLP made me reflect on a deeper level. Powerful insights for clear action emerged for me as a result. StageShift coaching and the VHLP adds a different layer to leadership development that supports leaders and the organisations they lead to add greater value to their stakeholders, communities and employees."
AB, Director Leadership, Central Bank of Ireland
"The VHLP Certification provides a later generation Vertical Holistic Leadership Model and a multifaceted systemic view of vertical development. It teaches how to have a deep developmental conversation with a person who undertook the questionnaire. The advantage of the VHLP questionnaire is that it highlights specific areas where the development is most likely to bring about a major vertical shift."
