Using the catalyst cards in the Transformations deck

The Catalyst cards in the Transformations deck represent processes, triggers, or catalysts for human development. There are 50 such catalysts included in the current version of the deck, see the list below. Use of these cards is optional. They are designed to help people go deeper in their exploration of their life journeys and the forces that influence vertical development.

Steadman Harrison recently used the cards to help participants see “underneath” the development of their action logics (see photo).
