Spiral Dynamics Assessment
I use full spiral dynamics profiling as part of the Evolutionary Purpose Work system as it offers powerful insight to the coaching assessment. Examples of the reports you will receive to guide and inform our conversations can be downloaded below.
People and organisations often talk about values or being ‘values driven’ without awareness that values exist in distinct value systems that emerge in levels or waves. Spiral dynamics analysis for individuals and organisations shows how value systems have grown in relationship with life conditions. These levels of values act as major psychological lenses, filtering how we see and interpret the world around us. These value systems are in strong dynamic relationship with each other and holding one system too tightly can repress and lose the benefits of a previous system. You might have noticed this in society in the current ‘culture wars’ where many people believe that others that think differently are totally wrong. Diversity and inclusion of people with different psychological value systems is crucial to prevent very serious possible consequences.
There are three parts available for testing – a spiral dynamics values profile, a change profile and for organisations, an extra culture profile.
The culture profiling tests the capabilities and areas for development in line with the influential work from Frederic Laloux of Reinventing Organisations.
I have attended a number of Jonathan’s talks about spiral dynamics which were immediately inspiring. I thought that this was such a helpful way to view what is going on in my personal development, my spiritual communities and in world events. It opened new pathways forward and new solutions for complex problems. I have learned such a lot since then from Jonathan, and really value that he combines direct experience of big shifts in consciousness in his own life with an awesome commitment to learning more. I can’t recommend Jonathan highly enough as an individual coach or for working with organisations that want to raise their game and take significant and sustainable shifts forward.
