The STAGES Assessment identifies your core stage of perspective development within the STAGES model, a new theory and assessment methodology for human development. This is the level from which you consistently make meaning of your life’s experiences. The profile indicates a variety of common themes, including strengths and challenges. These themes include your interior thinking and emotions, your actions and collective experiences, and ways you approach balance between these aspects of your life. The assessment also provides a practical recommendations for further development and learning. Your stage is a coherent and internally consistent belief system that describes how you are likely to think, feel, and behave in various life situations. Each stage also has its own strength and vulnerabilities. STAGES makes the most subtle and explicit distinctions at the high-end of the personal developmental spiral and includes ego-transcendent perspectives.

What People are Saying
As a founding member of the Integral Institute, a founding teacher at the Integral Spiritual Center and as a part of the STAGES research team it is clear to me that in unparalleled ways STAGES honors, weaves together, and builds on Ken Wilber’s integral theory and the work of Jane Loevinger and Susanne Cook-Greuter on stages of human development. Through STAGES, Dr. Terri O’Fallon has developed the cutting edge theoretical and practical approach to provide the world the best means yet to understand, measures and pursue the interrelated quest of growing up and waking up into the highest reaches of human potential.
I’ve used the StAGES/MAP as a CEO, of a $750MM company, to grow my own capacity and our senior team to meet VUCA complexity as our Business expanded to achieve the complex adaptations we needed to grow personal and business vitality.
It works in ways unimaginable. Do it.
How is STAGES different from other developmental models?
I am concerned about labeling people with a stage of development and placing some people higher than others. How do you address this?
Are the higher stages better, more valuable, more important, etc?
Why are the models so linear and concrete? Development seems like a much messier process and doesn’t seem to follow these linear, stair-step kind of models?
How do I take the Assessment?
How are results collated?
Are results interpreted by the assessor initially or is it an automatically generated profile?
What does the final report look like?
Is it only for individuals or can you stage assess teams or organizations?
