Stage I: Knowledge Worker
Truly working with knowledge means the distinction between input, process, and output blurs and we learn to work with “whole outcomes”.
Knowledge and process – both are objective. The focus is the output being sought of you. The ideal is competence.
Stage II: Knowledge Craftsman
At the next stage, the goal is the creation of knowledge products which are beautiful, effective, engaging, and knowledge-shifting.
Knowledge is objective, process is subjective. The focus is your inner vision for the product. The ideal is product excellence.
Stage III: Knowledge Warrior
At the third stage you not only work, but you’re also dedicated to a higher purpose. This is when you pull apart from other knowledge workers and begin the journey of self-transformation.
Both knowledge and process become subjective. Purpose transmutes the objective into subjective. The focus is your becoming. The ideal is evolution.
Stage IV: Transformed Consciousness
The distinction between knowledge, process, and purpose has dissolved into a new whole called the ideal. The focus is manifesting the ideal. You are the ideal.
