We create bespoke Vertical Development programmes that actually develop your leaders’ thinking! Using the CDT Framework, we can take a team of your top performers and stretch their thinking to the next level!
We have created this programme in order to walk participants along a path of Vertical Development. It gives an idea of not only what, but how one grows in their thinking within a business/managerial context. True development is about transforming the operating system itself, not just increasing our fund of knowledge or our behavioural repertoire.
The premise behind The Three Leaders Programme is that your leadership team or high level managers are exposed to three different Thinking Styles, three ways of looking at a specific problem from three distinct levels of Dynamic Intelligence – TQ5; TQ7 and TQ9. See this page for the scale.
We have two programmes: a 2-day and a 5-day programme that differentiates content from structure from a Cognitive Intention perspective, as it’s not about competence but our level of self-awareness.
If we normally resolve issues by only taking into account the content – the who, what, why, how and when – we will go round in circles and not actually resolve the problem: we will only address the symptoms.
We need to look at structure from a position of Intention, Awareness, Choice and Response. So by the end of day one, we will be able to differentiate between horizontal and Vertical Development, and recognise the importance of the stages of self-awarness as demonstrated in the workshop.
We look at the aspects of cognition that determine a result at three different levels of Awareness, whilst at the same time scaffolding the growth of the participants to see the actual increase in complexity, so they “get it”. We look at language, beliefs, hidden patterns of behaviour, and our world view in order to develop higher order solutions to the problem your management team has brought with them. This is how we impact their Dynamic Intelligence.
