Leaders develop through a series of stages therefore its Universal Process because it doesn’t matter what culture you are from and if this process is ignored it will end negatively in the development of our leaders Personal transformation is movement from one stage to the next, but for a transformative change to occur stakeholders need to shift to a higher stage of development if not the change will only be temporary and revert back to its old way. As we change, we are now able handle more complexity with grace, ease, and less energy spent and things that were once not possible are not doable in turn world gains a person of greater contribution and service as he or she is operating at their leadership capacity. When leaders progress to higher levels, so does the system and culture even though each works interdependent For example, a system cannot organize at a higher level of performance than the consciousness of its leadership and until the system operates at a new level it will only hinder the development of the leader. Once leaders invent higher-order systems, the new system will warrant development in everyone, once essential mass develops to a new stage it is now at tipping point setting up for an evolutionary leap. The changing is leadership and organization work hand in hand with one another, but it starts with the awareness of the leaders as the exert influence on the system and change it. But the new system will not operate until a majority of personnel have developed themselves. It is said that 70-85 percent of these efforts to make a change ends up failing. This number can be improved if we change in creative and integral ways to address the demands for inner and outer transformation and be willing to go through the same shift of mind and heart that we expect from the enterprise and be able to speak on the difficult topics that have been kept otherwise hidden. For organizational change to be a real thing, change needs to occur personally. Although organization transformation happens first, but until recently it has been difficult developing a pathway for sustainable personal change. Five levels of leadership: EGOCENTRIC, RECTIVE, CREATIVE, INTEGRAL, AND UNITIVE EGOCENTRIC - begins roughly around the age of 8 and ends when he or she mature into early adulthood with a transition phase of 2-3 years as a teenager adapts to adult life. This level is known as the “I am my Needs” with the ability to meet our needs but doesn’t notice others

Kegan calls this stage the Self-Sovereign because our needs are primary and the strength in this stage is the ability to get our needs met and gain independence. To the point that they are overly independent and realize they are that way because they do not manage their needs rather their needs manage them Decision are made on physical and personal need of satisfaction, not on the impact of how it affects others.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
