My initial reaction was to ask "Which stage am I in?". But that's the wrong question. The question needs to be asked of the tribes in which you are involved.
I wrote 700 words on how that all relates to me, my work, my extra time and my goals. And then I erased it. Because it doesn't matter to you. Here's a briefer summary:
- Most employees are at stage 2. The company assumes they are at stage 3, yet puts out outward-facing communications claiming they are at stage 4.
- Social tribes (non-work) are made up of mostly stage 3 people and a handful of 2s that stay on due to a sense of obligation. They tend to be led by a single person at 4, who is constantly battling the 3s.
- Stage 5 is truly remarkable.
