Some reflective thoughts:
The Colloquium was very professionally handled with many curious and well-informed people who could both question and contribute.
My goal was to test out a new process on story-telling around personal values with a construct aware crowd, that I think would be hard in a regular audience. The experiment was successful and the more playful approach to development was appreciated.
As a result, many good questions emerged regarding the limitations of adult development theory and how it can actually limit the possibility to grow.
There is a paradox that in order to get people to rise in vertical complexity you might need models that do not talk about vertical complexity but rather focus on getting to play. By playing a game with our values and meaning-making we can become aware of all the other games we play as adults. And that can help us grow!
