Certain Uncertainties – Measuring vertical development and its impact on leadership

The field of vertical development is gaining momentum as a way of helping leaders and individuals cope and thrive in the demands of today’s complexity and uncertainty. But what is the actual evidence of the impact of vertical development? Our latest paper uncovers the impact of vertical development and answers many burning questions about the validity and reliability of this approach including, amongst others:

  • What evidence is there of developmental stages in adulthood?
  • Are measures of development stage theoretically sound?
  • Do individuals and organisations find value in the idea?
  • Do leaders at later stages perform better within VUCA environments?
