The Challenge of Growing Bigger Minds

Most of us are familiar with the idea that “the significant problems that we face today cannot be solved with the same level of  thinking we were at when we created them” (Einstein). But how do we assess and develop our “level of thinking”?

As leaders face ever more complex adaptive challenges, it would appear that cultivating new levels of thinking is increasingly necessary. So how might organisations measure the “level of thinking” in their leadership community? And how might leaders assess whether the level of thinking is a match for their leadership challenges and develop increased capacity where it is required?

In this session, Angela explores these questions through the lens of the Leadership Maturity Framework. She will take us on a journey through the seven stages of adult development (or levels of thinking) typically seen in organisations and how each stage impacts organisational performance and shapes organisational culture.

Vertical development (the work of growing bigger minds) has been identified by the Centre for Creative Leadership as the fastest growing trend in leadership development and you will leave this session with:
• Greater insight into your own stage of development
• An appreciation for the capacities and limitations of others’ stage of development
• Insight into the value of horizontal and vertical development
• Ideas for tapping into the hidden developmental capacity in your organisation.
