The concepts and ideas behind Developmentally-FIT© are built on the foundations of the science-practitioner model, which means that we work at the juncture between scientific research and the practical reality of organisational life. We are constantly moving backwards and forwards between the two worlds, generating workable solutions that have depth, breadth and scope.
A number of different theories form the foundations of our work, including:
Contextual behavioural science, and in particular Relational Frame Theory
Action research, and in particular work by Edgar Schein
Cognitive Psychology, and in particular Schema Theory
Evolutionary Science, and in particular the work of David Sloan Wilson
Positive Psychology, and in particular the work of Martin Seligman
Theories of Human Development, and in particular the work of Robert Kegan
Systems Theory, and in particular Integral Leadership
