Tailor your coaching
to facilitate your client’s vertical development.

          Do you wonder why your coaching approach can be so effective for some  clients and not for  others?

          Have you had a sense that what you offer is sometimes over the head of your  client?

          How you experienced times when your client is not challenged enough by what you offer, as  they                        demonstrate a greater depth of understanding than  you  imagined?

At VeDA, through vertical development theory and practice, we offer solutions to those questions. We focus on how to bring success to coaching interventions by designing the coaching interventions to the "level" of development of the client. We emphasize on increasing effectiveness of coaching by tailoring the coaching for the stage of the development of the client.

These are elements of vertical development coaching. The surprise benefit is vertical growth which is an outcome of powerful maturity coaching approach.

Join Our
Maturity Coaching Intensive!

VeDA’s MCI is designed for experienced and credentialed coaches who would like to learn how to powerfully facilitate vertical development for their clients.

 

MCI is designed to equip practicing coaches with the skills and capabilities to deliver coaching tailored to stages of ego maturity, based on the rigorously researched Leadership Maturity Framework and using VeDA’s Maturity Coaching methodology [learn more…].

In this 9-month  integrative learning experience you will participate in live workshops with world-class faculty who are thought leaders, you will work in small group practice pods with other coach-learners, receive feedback from certified Leadership Maturity Coaches who will be a resource to you, and engage in self-directed learning and reflection.

VeDA’s MCI will equip you to do:

 

As a participant in the MCI, you will:

  • Develop a deep understanding of what vertical development is and how it can be facilitated

  • Measure & explore how your own stage of development can inform and transform your coaching

  • Recognize stage related aspects that show up in your clients’ response to their issues, as they navigate their day-to-day and long term challenges

  • Adapt your coaching approach depending on the stage capacity of your client

  • Step up powerfully to effectively support your client harness their developmental potential - without having to use an assessment

With the capabilities above, you will earn to explicitly and implicitly do vertical development coaching without using the MAP.

MCI’s Two-fold focus
for building your vertical coaching capability

You will learn 2 critical elements to be successful in facilitating vertical development in your clients:

 

1. Measure your own stage of development: illuminate your blindspots

Your own vertical developmental stage and journey informs your coaching and determines your ongoing potential for growth.

 

In the MCI, you will begin by taking the MAP (link to website) - the assessment instrument that determines the stage development of an individual. We will give you a clear picture of where you are in your developmental journey, what is ahead for you, the extent to which you are prepared for the next stage of your development, and recommendations for your ongoing growth.  Throughout the program you will work on your self-development by applying all the concepts and tools in service of your own evolution, all while being supported by the faculty and experienced and certified coaches.

As a result of your own MAP experience, you will grow to appreciate your client’s journey and relate to their growth process much more powerfully and authentically.

​2.   Design Your Coaching for Your Client’s Developmental Journey

DB for VeDA_Tri-Stage Appreciation.png

A developmentally informed approach is the most powerful lens from which you can offer your coaching interventions to your client.

 

In the MCI, you will take a deep-dive into the stages of maturity, and learn how to coach your clients in a way that is most effective and transformational for their operating world view, and their particular context and issues. You will do this without having your client take an assessment as a requirement. (You can request for the MAP as an additional component to support your coaching if your client is interested in the measure).

Through the content, design, structure, and experiences incorporated in this program, we will guide you to:

                    Learn how to coach in a way that is deliberately developmental 

                    Discover how to recognize stage-related language and tensions in your client’s world

                    Discern what are the most valuable stage-appropriate tools and practices that can serve your clients

                    Effectively tailor your coaching interventions to the level and capacity of your clients to meet them more skillfully where                          they are at and offer guidance for their next level of development.

Our Approach

Vertical Dev Banner (1).png

Vertical Development

 

Vertical development fosters the growth of new perspectives and a greater ability to handle difficult problems. In contrast, horizontal development --defined as acquiring experience and knowledge, as well as new skills and competencies-- does not lead to shifts in how one sees the world and engages with its challenges. In today’s increasingly complex work and life contexts, vertical development becomes essential. Research over the last four decades has shown that vertical development can be traced as a logical sequence of stages through which leaders can interpret and gain insights about themselves, others and the world around them.
