At this event, Susanne Cook-Greuter and Beena Sharma will anchor an intimate dialogue about their work in understanding and applying ego-development stage theory with individuals and organizations. Susanne and Beena do intensive workshops on developmental coaching, and also work with various groups and organizations around the world, supporting an evolved and sophisticated understanding of the developmental perspective. In 2009, Susanne and Beena will be delivering workshops in Brazil, UK, Europe, South Africa and Asia.
In our evening together, Susanne will share with us her perspectives and the latest research on ego-development. Susanne and Beena will discuss cases where a developmental perspective has illuminated the coaching and development process. We will get an overview of how this work is being applied in organizations and both the potential and boundaries that define this work. The forum will be an open and interactive one, and you are invited to bring your own questions and understanding to make this a collective meaning-making conversation!
