The definition of developmental stages in humans has so far included childhood and young adults. But what is the stage of development of adults who are over 40 years old and in the middle of their working lives? Can they also develop further? How do you recognize the developmental stages and what happens if employees have a higher developmental stage than their boss?
I interviewed Dr. Darren Stevens, who dealt with these questions in his doctoral thesis. He was able to describe how people construct their thinking. He has come up with some astonishing insights for companies, managers and employees. In addition, he has invented a completely new field of psychology.
