DescriptionThe ways you speak and act in your discipline reflect and constitute an evolving professional identity. During the session participants discover the complex relationship between their need for inclusion in their field and their need for distinctiveness. Based on over 30 years of theory building and research by Harvard’s Robert Kegan, a theory has been honed that provides deep levels of explanation for the negotiation and renegotiation of the terms of your development. The aim of this talk is to provide you with seminal understands of this theory. Why remain clueless to the deep developmental changes in your life? This talk will set you on a journey toward better self-knowledge and, by extrapolation, better knowledge of others as you work towards similar and different goals in your disciplinary scholarship and research.
