“If you do the work to get yourself and your group to Stage 4, where you’re actually truly collaborating, you will be given offers in life to step in and participate effectively at Stage 5. This does not happen, this does not occur for the people at Stage 2 and 3. At Stage 3 they’re too caught up in ‘My need to dominate and control people around me’ and at Stage 2 in my kind of worldview that ‘I’m a victim and I can trust no one’.”
