Adding levels to the quadrants

We know that everything progresses developmentally. The progression of development can be broken down into identifiable stages, or levels. There are hundreds of developmental systems in the world, of course. Let's see if we can apply some useful developmental models to our four quadrants of health, career, relationships and self/shadow.
For the progression of physical fitness, I use Steve Barnes's Four Dimensional Performance Pyramid.
For the progression of career, I use William Torbert and Susanne Cook-Greuter's Developmental Action Inquiry.
For the progression of relationships, I use Knapp's Relationship Development Model.
For the progression of the self, I use Jane Loevinger's Stages of Ego Development.
With the addition of levels, we have added a useful dimension to our map, the stage progression of each quadrant — mind, body, spirit and self.
