What is Vertical Leadership Development?

Vertical Leadership Development is the cutting edge of executive and leadership development.

Vertical Leadership Development is about expanding worldviews and raising leaders’ consciousness to higher levels or “stages of development.” It expands their perspective to see and include more of the dynamics at play, catalyzing new aha’s, insights and solutions.

In contrast, traditional executive development delivers horizontal learning: it provides new knowledge, skills and methods, all within the existing conventional paradigm or worldview. 

Vertical development opens new possibilities for transformation and breakthrough. With a bigger mind, leaders can take on bigger challenges.

This vertical leadership development assessment lists 20 key developments leaders make as they move from conventional to post-conventional stages. Think of it like climbing a ladder or mountain peak and seeing from a higher place. The next, more advanced stage of development provides a larger, more holistic perspective, a more inclusive line of sight to the dynamics at play. Each stage supports your increasing development and success as a transformational leader.
