Spiral Dynamics gives an insight to motivation
Why do we do things in a particular way? Knowledge of Spiral Dynamics helps to get a grip on the multifaceted needs of individuals, teams, and organizations.
Prof. Clare W. Graves, Dr. Don Beck and Christopher Cowan identified and visualized eight different underlying value systems that can strongly influence our worldview, thought processes, feelings, actions and rejections. The model is applied worldwide, through the website www.spiraldynamicsintegral.nl (developed by Synnervate), for example. Learning to apply Spiral Dynamics helps you to get a grip on the multifaceted needs of individuals, teams and organizations. In the Netherlands, we are the only accredited trainer for Spiral Dynamics training at all levels.
