In Over our Heads By Robert Kegan
Robert Kegan authored a theory that is the foundation of adult learning. Understanding Kegan leads to a greater understanding of where we are on our lifelong learning and how to work with others who are in a different stage. Unless we find ways to advance our capacities to process and make decisions, we will be in over our heads in the modern era.
