Phase FIVE has conducted extensive research in leadership, adult development, and large and small group process. This work has contributed to a greater understanding of how to ensure effective delivery of leadership training to executives and managers who come from differing backgrounds and have widely differing ways of understanding (and making meaning of) their work, personal mission and world.

Our research finds that many organizations face challenges that are complex, interrelated, and systemic in nature. These challenges defy conventional approaches that rely on a few experts and old forms of problem solving. Such challenges require that leadership be exercised not only by individuals, but also by groups throughout the organization. To “resolve” the dilemmas, contradictions and other systemic challenges facing the organization involves the work of high-functioning leadership groups that undergo the changes that will later reflect the cultural changes throughout the organization.
