Event description

Description

A WAY OF UNDERSTANDING HUMAN NATURE

Creating lasting and effective cultural and behavioural change means recognising and working with values.

But where do values come from?

Values spring from worldviews.
To effectively work with values means understanding worldviews – how people think, and why people adopt the values they do.

Insight into worldviews and ways of thinking is profoundly relevant to a range of areas including:
- leadership
- conflict management
- organisational change
- communication & marketing
- working with diverse communities
- cultural transformation

What is Spiral Dynamics?
Spiral Dynamics is a data-based, psychological approach to understanding worldviews or systems of thinking held by individuals, organisations and societies. It is concerned with:

  • how people to respond to the world around them in given circumstances and with their particular coping abilities (rather than categorising people as ‘types’)

  • how people think about things (conceptualisation), rather than what they think about (concepts) – for example, is their thinking binary and absolutist (‘if it’s not black, then it must be white’), or do they acknowledge and seem comfortable with ambiguity and uncertainty?

  • questions like:
    - why are people different
    - why do some people change but others do not?
    - how does the mind respond to a world that becomes increasingly complex?
