The Four Stages™ of Contribution Model developed years ago by Gene Dalton and Paul Thompson. This model identifies the stages in which leaders participate and develop and describes what high performance is in each stage—Contributing Dependently, Contributing Independently, Contributing Through Others, and Contributing Strategically.

This model has continued to influence leadership even today and provides a thoughtful structure through which organizations can think about developing competencies, behaviors, attitudes, and skills that focus on developing current good leaders into future great leaders.

Ask yourself, “Where do I stand?”
