    Mindy Danna: Adult Development
    Mindy Danna has over 20 years experience helping individuals and organizations achieve their goals through coaching, organization development, and strategic facilitation. She specializes in workplace communication, influencing skills, sales management, team building, strategic facilitation, and conflict resolution.
    Key Points
    The stages of development from Robert Kegan:

    Impulsive mind (early childhood)
    Imperial mind (adolescence)
    Socialized mind (46% of the adult population)
    Self-Authoring mind (41% of the adult population)
    Self-Transforming mind

    There are only modest correlations with age and the adult developmental stages.
    We can absolutely regress backward into prior stages depending on context and situation.
    Knowing more about what stage(s) you identify with will help you have more compassion for yourself and for others.
    Your most practical development plan: Do one thing every day that scares you.
