Integral Philosophy

Stagen helps leaders to become more conscious by addressing three distinct dimensions of business: the individual ("I"), the team ("We"), and the organization ("It").

Building on the latest research in developmental theory, the below illustration represents the framework we use to expand client capacity at the current level and catalyze the move to the next level.

Individual

The path to increased capacity in the individual (employee and/or leader) dimension is the shift from "Socially Defined" to "Self-Authoring." The practice for individual vertical development is "Gamefilming" - a metaphor borrowed from sport that refers to the filming of an athletic performance for later review and performance improvement.

Team

The path to increased capacity in the team dimension is the shift from "Compliance" to "Collaboration." The practice for team development is "Action Learning" - a method based on two fundamental principles: (1) Teams optimize learning by solving problems linked to their actual experiences and work situations; and (2) disciplined group analysis and reflection produce the greatest gains in ability in the shortest amount of time.

Organization

The path to increased capacity in the organizational dimension is the shift from "Scrambling" to "Scaling." The practice for organizational development is "Business Objectification" - a method for making previously implicit competencies explicit so that they can be documented, refined, and duplicated.
