Polarity Wisdom Programs

Embracing Complexity with Polarity Wisdom

In this interactive one-day workshop, we will introduce you to a critical tool, a lens, a way of thinking itself that will help you transform how you address day-to-day and strategic issue. You will learn how to use this new awareness of polarities to address complex issues in more comprehensive and sustainable ways in both your work and your relationships.

Polarity Wisdom for the LCP

Designed exclusively for LCP coaches and practitioners, this program will show you how to add Polarity Wisdom™ to your coaching and transform the way you work with the Leadership Circle Profile™

Do you want to assess your stage of development?

Your Maturity Profile (MAP) shows how far you have matured through the stages of human development. Based on rigorous research, the MAP provides a fine-tuned and nuanced developmental profile, offering quantitative and qualitative insights. The MAP Experience is conducted online via our secure MAP platform. After you receive the MAP report, a certified Leadership Maturity Coach (LMC) will meet with you to debrief your MAP results, as well as work with you on your developmental goals.

Do you want a coach to support your vertical development?

We offer Leadership Maturity Coaching (LMC), a well-developed practice that can support you to explore your current stage of development and discover where you are headed while collaborating with you to apply the best tools and practices to get there. LMC not only expands, deepens, and enriches your current ways of making meaning, it goes further by facilitating transformations in how you interpret and address your day-to-day challenges in your work, your relationships, and self-development.

Do you want to get trained in coaching for vertical development?

We offer experienced coaches and leaders deep, hands-on training in vertical development. Our Developing Leadership Maturity (DLM) intensives focus on how to enable ongoing growth in yourself as well as those you support. As a leader, educator, coach, consultant, or OD practitioner, you will understand more clearly the capacities and limitations of your clients and be able to more powerfully support them in their vertical development journey.
