A more effective leadership model for the new business environment. Spiral Dynamics in Action explores the evolution of modern business, and provides a model for moving forward amidst ever-increasing complexity and change. Only by truly understanding other people's perspectives can you bring them together to achieve the extraordinary, and this book provides a field guide to the different motivations, behaviours and talents in your team to help you lead diverse groups more effectively. Focused on action over theory, the Spiral Dynamics model includes cutting-edge leadership practices, management systems, processes, procedures and techniques to help you bring about real-world results. The nature of change is consistent, but that doesn't make it any less enormous or complex to deal with. As a business leader, you are tasked with not only navigating change yourself, but also guiding others through the maze successfully. This book shows you how to shift your perspective, hone your focus and deliver what your people need by: Understanding the reasoning behind different perspectives. Helping people play off one another's strengths to achieve a shared goal. Adopting cutting-edge practices, processes and procedures for improvement. Taking action to re-connect an increasingly fragmented environment. The marketplace has gone truly global, workforces are increasingly diverse and companies are taking on powerful new social responsibilities. It's a lot to take in, let alone manage, but the responsibility of leadership is to gather disparate parts and make them into a whole. It's your job to turn anchors into rocket fuel, and motivate and inspire your team to the top. By digging to the core of each person, each culture and each problem, you uncover a roadmap to high performance; Spiral Dynamics in Action shows you how to guide your people through any changes and emerge stronger than before.

MEMEnomics -- \MEE – MEH –nomics\ -noun A new branch of social science that studies patterns of economic policies and practices by taking an integral, whole-systems approach to economic sustainability. The term “vMEME” (the superscript “v” is for “value”) refers to a core value system expressed through a culture’s memes, i.e., its ideas, habits, and cultural preferences and practices that spread from person to person. In MEMEnomics Said E. Dawlabani reframes our economic history and the future of capitalism through the unique prism of a culture’s value systems. Focusing on the long-term effects of economic policies on society, he expands psychologist Clare W. Graves’ concepts of the hierarchical nature of human development and the theories of value systems of Beck and Cowan’s Spiral Dynamics. He presents our economic history in terms of the hierarchy of five of the eight value-systems or vMEMEs of human existence that we can now identify. These new value preferences emerge as people interact with their environment to solve the problems of their “life conditions.” The author believes that the pattern of economic cycles resulting from cultural value systems is critical to understanding the evolution of the meme of laissez-faire capitalism. By demonstrating predictable cycles of our economic history through the spiral of evolving levels of cultural value systems, he argues for the need to change the course of failures inherent in our current system. Mr. Dawlabani then offers a solution to the viability of capitalism—the formation of a “smart model” of government designed from the values of the currently emerging seventh-level value system. Mr. Dawlabani calls on business leaders to evolve their values to the higher seventh-level system detailed in his “platform of functional capitalism.” In this evolution of business consciousness, humanity moves from the myopic ethic of “subsistence” to a new frontier that champions the emerging ethic of the “magnificence of existence”—where we will all blend as part of a larger, compassionate whole.

In A Theory of Everything, Wilber uses clear, nontechnical language to present complex, cutting-edge theories that integrate the realms of body, mind, soul, and spirit. He then demonstrates how these theories and models can be applied to real-world problems in areas such as politics, medicine, business, education, and the environment. Wilber also discusses daily practices that readers take up in order to apply this integrative vision to their own everyday lives.

No one has influenced our understanding of culture and value systems as much as Clare W. Graves, US American professor of social psychology and originator of the emergent theory of human development. His relevance to the field of consulting and organizational development is indisputable. However, only few authors have dealt with Gravess original data. This book is the worldwide first summary of Gravess original studies, audiotapes, and notes, as well as a complete biography and comprehensive explanation of its scientific relevance in regard to human development. Rainer Krumm and Benedikt Parstorfers intent is to spread the knowledge and wisdom of Graves and his extensive studies and offer the interested reader a thorough understanding of his original work and various applications.
