What is adult development?
Whether we are 9, 99, or anywhere in between, the opportunity to grow and develop is always before us. The challenge is not in seeking these opportunities but recognizing where we are developmentally and navigating the path to new, enriching perspectives. We are often so captivated by our relationships, careers, and ideas that we avoid the obstacles and opportunities that offer us the greatest chances for personal evolution. These territories can be confusing or frustrating.. The STAGES Matrix offers clarity through this terrain of human development by describing the way that alternating processes of “being” and “becoming” can alter our very own perspective and change how we experience the world. At times we are in a “being” stage and others we are “becoming”. This transition happens when a confusion arises, something like, “This is not working” or “Who am I?. The STAGES Matrix helps map these transitions (confusions) as well as how these confusions resolve opening up the capacity to take on more complex perspectives and access deeper resources within ourselves. Our communities, courses, and coaches can provide support through these transformations. Join the STAGES community to find support along your developmental journey.
There is power in perspective. Our scientifically backed assessments are now bundled in courses so you can learn your developmental level & unlock your full potential. Assessments are at the heart of STAGES. Take your first course and assessment or get connected with a trained professional scorer.
