Debriefing is a critical element of the STAGES Assessment process, providing clients with an opportunity to explore the depths of their profile and examine how they might wish to move forward with their own development. The STAGES Assessment provides detailed information on the client’s center of gravity, leading and trailing edges, areas of shadow and developmental recommendations. The primary task of the Debriefer is to support the client to make sense of their report by triangulating three sources of information:

  • the client’s sense of their developmental journey
  • the Debriefer’s sense of the client in the debriefing session
  • the score generated through the written assessment

As well it is the task of the Debriefer to use the debrief as added evidence of the clients developmental level by:

  • listening carefully to the client as they present in the moment
  • tracking their life’s developmental trajectory through their stages and asking questions to pin point those transformations where possible

Proficient STAGES Debriefers require a good understanding of each of the developmental stages and strong interpersonal skills to support their client through the debrief process. One of the critical aspects of debriefing is to be able to adapt the way the session is held in line with the client’s own stage of development. Learning how to become a Debriefer is an intense process that involves understanding the detail of the assessment report, how this can be offered to clients in useful ways and how to attune the debriefing delivery in ways that match the client.
