Unique and Powerful Development Spaces

We deeply respect and honour the deep academic foundations and theoretical framework that underpins the Leadership Maturity Framework and our approach is designed to bring this rich theory to life.

We feel deeply that there is a magical and transformational space created when people gather together and are willing to be fully present in body and spirit to themselves and with each other.

We have therefore consciously chosen a learning approach that most fully creates this opportunity.

Each of us is the source of our own transformation, however the journey can be a little less daunting with guides who are skilled in reading and navigation the territory.

Our program leaders have personally navigated the adult development landscape and we endeavor to work with our participants in a way that we feel best  models the intentions of the LMF. We support each other and our clients to:

  • Fully celebrate, optimise and fulfil the capacities, capabilities and strengths of each developmental stage and their own current stage

  • Explore their developmental edge and to practice seeing and sensing into what might be next

  • Recognise the capacities that have not yet become embodied, allowing for a more choicefull and effective approach to their leadership or coaching practice.

Learn your theories as well as you can, but put them aside when you touch the miracle of the living soul.

The Leadership Maturity Framework
(Module 1)

The Leadership Maturity Framework 3-day program is our core program and offers an intimate and intensive learning experience.

You will be skillfully guided through an exploration of the nine stages of leadership maturity, connecting cognitively, emotionally and energetically with each developmental stage; allowing you to honour and optimise the gifts of each stage in yourself and with your clients and colleagues.

On days 1 and 2 we will engage in a range of learning processes where you will discover what people at different stages are able to pay attention to, and what does not yet appear on their radar; that is, what is objective and thus alterable, and what is still subjective and therefore hidden from awareness.

On day 3, we will turn our attention to how the LMF can be applied to team and organisational transformation. In sharing your own experiences and examining real-life case studies we will discover how the framework may be best used, implicitly and explicitly in a range of contexts.

We will explore the world of polarities recognise the value of Polarity Management to organisational transformation and its relationship to leadership maturity.

Throughout the three days we will invite you to pay particular attention to your own stage of development; deepening your awareness of and sharing with others what you see about your past, present and future developmental journey.

As you engage and share with a rich community of fellow participants you will experience both the challenge and profound privilege of holding space for another’s transformation.

LMF Developmental Coaching Intensive
(Module 2)

In the second part of our Core Curriculum, we focus on the Leadership Maturity Profile, diving deeper into exploring aspects of language and its implications for meaning-making and growth.

We engage in real-world analysis of text to offer insights into stages of development and subject/object orientation.

We will explore the application of developmental moves, developmental momentum and types of developmental support that may offer the best match for each developmental stage. We will come to understand more clearly the capacities and limitations of your clients’ systems and how you can intervene with the tools, strategies and models most effective for each stage of development.

You will deepen your understanding of the difference between change, translation and transformation and add new tools and approaches to guide yourself and others through a journey of transformational change.

Through experiential practice activities, we will explore how your own developmental stage impacts your coaching style, where you are likely to be at your best and where there may be blind spots or limitations for you to be aware of.

You will have the opportunity to practice coaching from a developmentally informed context and practice peer debriefing and coaching bringing the Leadership Maturity Profile to life.

Participants who complete Module 1 (The Leadership Maturity Framework) and Module 2 (LMF Developmental Coaching Intensive) are authorised to use the SCTi and access Leadership Maturity Profiles for their clients.

LMF Transformational Retreat

We think that our LMF Transformational Retreat is a gift that you should give yourself. They are restorative and revitalizing, offerING a space to be nourished and known and to explore the next steps in your own developmental journey.

For those of us who support and hold space for others’ development it is important to take time out to be replenished as well as stretched into what may be next for our own development.

The LMF Transformational Retreat creates bespoke learning experiences that are matched to our current developmental stage and its inherent challenges.

For many of us this means revisiting our earlier development stages to connect with, heal and integrate its gifts and to cultivate the courage to expand into the fullest potential of the current self.

Maja leads us through a series of experiences and processes with love, kindness and vulnerability. She brings her expertise and gifts as a therapist, healer and coach to create a space where we feel safe to move more deeply into ourselves.

In this space, we re-discover and reclaim what was forgotten or unseen, we further heal the human traumas that often remain with us from these early stages and we create truly transformational experiences.

Train the Trainer

The LMF Train the Trainer program is an advanced skills program for coaches and consultants committed to introducing a vertical development perspective to their own or their clients’ organizations.

In a community of practice with a cohort of colleagues and co-learners we will explore each of the stages of contracting, designing and delivering a developmentally informed leadership development or organization transformation program.

We will explore the tools, process and conversations that are useful in building a case for introducing vertical development to an organisation, which includes assessing the organisational current developmental stage, its current business challenges and readiness to engage and how to recognize and energise champions in the system.

You will deepen your understanding of the overall Leadership Maturity Framework and your skill and experience in sharing the key constructs in a group learning context.

You will develop skill in working with a group of learners at different developmental stages and in facilitating an inclusive learning process where the gifts of each stage are valued and the limitations are appreciated.

Participants who successfully complete the Train the Trainer program will access the IDC learning materials and development support resources.
