The Growth Edge is an idea: that between who you are now and who you will be next is a zone of learning and being that we call the Growth Edge. Having company to support you to find and navigate this exciting and sometimes anxiety-producing terrain makes the journey more comfortable and more possible.
It is a global collective of people interested in how the practice and research of adult development theories can change the way we make sense of the world and therefore expand the possibilities for dealing with complexity and change. We write, research, read, and talk about how to offer that support in increasingly helpful ways. The collective is member-led and volunteer-organized. While founded by a few, it is and will increasingly be shaped by those members who wish to create it. Members of the Growth Edge Network can use the network as much or as little as they wish.
Here are a few ways members can already do that:
And the list of ways will grow over time.
GEN is about growing ideas, practices, and ways of being. If you find this intriguing, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to ask questions. New members are by invitation only, but any current member can invite you to join, so if you know someone who is a member and they have already invited you then please email us and let us know who they are. If you don't know anyone then please email us and we can begin a conversation with you about whether this might be a good community for you.
