This 4-day workshop will amplify your thinking and focus your practice using Spiral Dynamics to enhance your understanding.
The Stance Matters course will amplify your thinking and practice using Spiral Dynamics to reframe your understanding of Values, Leadership and Change. It comes with accreditation to use the on-line survey instruments in your work as a leader, coach, facilitator, and someone who lives life to the full. Prof Clare Graves’ ‘Spiral Dynamics’ values model is being increasingly recognised for its capacity to provide new and fundamentally deeper insights in the way we related to each other as individuals and communities. We need now to go beyond a simplistic version of the ‘colours’ thing. That is why we trust that this opportunity for a deep immersion will help enrich your knowledge of human emergence and empower your capacity to influence your world in a more generative way, especially as we endeavour to lead change in this interactive and diversely dynamic world. Using a wide range of highly interactive exercises woven around teaching of the theoretical base and processes of application, you will leave with the ability to: - Anticipate the likely change responses for yourself, others and organisations as life conditions change; - Scan and recognise the active value systems in yourself and others; - Learn through your practice how memes reveal the meta memes; - Adapt and utilise all that you know, and can do already, in new ways. The course will run 9am to 5pm on each day. Lunches and refreshments are included in the course fee. Remember, on completion of this 4-day program you will be able to gain access to the on-line survey instrument to use with your own organisation and clients.
Your Facilitators: Christopher Cooke – MSc. BA. I Eng. Member-INLPTA Christopher is a leading figure in the demonstration of The Graves Technology, Spiral Dynamics, and Integral Theory. His commitment and focus, since 1997, has been on the application of practices that outperform the present paradigm in as many contexts as possible. This has taken him around the world and into many social contexts such as Healthcare, Agriculture, Home Building, Community Safety, Community Building, Finance, etc. He has trained and developed coaches, facilitators and thought-leaders with teaching and practice is focused on the release of performance and potential. He has developed a unique research tool ‘5 Deep Vital Signs’, widely recognised as the most advanced application in this field (Public Statement on a Convetit panel by Susanne Cook-Greuter in 2016). Christopher is also an accredited professional in Holistic Decision-making which is applied extensively across all sectors. He is an advisor and trainer for Erickson Coaching International which operates across over 50 Countries. Christopher lives in the UK with his wife Sheila.
Sheila Cooke – MBA. BA. Sheila Cooke is hub leader for 3LM, the Savory Institute in the UK and Ireland. As a Savory Institute Accredited Professional, she educates farmers and business leaders in Holistic Management, a framework which informs high-quality decision-making, by providing people the insights and management tools needed to work with a full awareness of nature. Sheila holds an MBA in international business, and a BA in sociology/anthropology, and has worked in international business for twenty years, including as a general manager in Japan. This was followed by a career as a facilitator and educator. She is a qualified trainer for the Institute of Cultural Affairs in Chicago, and developed and facilitated courses at the Food and Agriculture Organisation in Rome. Sheila is really inspired by 3LM’s network of producers, brands and retailers, professionals, and consumers who seek, through constant innovation, to change the paradigm of farming from extractive to regenerative. www.3lm.network In 1978, Prof Clare W. Graves announced his model of how an individual interacts and changes in response to changes in a psycho-social DNA-like fashion. The Graves Technology is recognised as the foundational research for bodies of knowledge today known as Epigenetics, and Integral Psychology. His theory, based upon 36 years of longitudinal research, including over 20 years of field trials and application is named, “the emergent, cyclical, double-helix model of adult bio-psycho-social systems development.”
In 1996 the work was popularised as Spiral Dynamics by Dr Don Beck and Chris Cowan, who were supporter and mentees of Graves. In 1998, Spiral Dynamics Integral emerged as a marriage of the work of Graves, Beck, Cowan and Ken Wilber. From 1998, following extensive training and mentored project work with Don Beck and Chris Cowan, Christopher Cooke committed himself to the focused application and further research of this body of knowledge in alignment with Dr. Don Beck. 5 Deep was established in 2001 as the research-based organisation to carry out this work. This included the development a web based personal and cultural research instrument delivery system with permission and support from Dr. Don Beck and co-leadership with Dr John Cook. This system is known as 5 Deep Vital Signs.
Between 2009 and 2012 the learning since 1998 was consolidated and Solonics was created as The Art Science and Practice of Values, Leadership and Change. In 2017 The Quantum LEAP framework was completed and now forms the basis of the consultancy and advisory services that Christopher leads. Today this work, which is fundamentally about Values, Leadership and Change, is offered through 5 Deep and 3LM which are living demonstrations based in the UK. 5 Deep advises the advisors internationally and provides custom designed services for all forms of organisations – The 5 Deep maxim being: Lead or Be Led. 3LM, which is led by Christopher’s wife Sheila Cooke, focuses on the large-scale application of Values, Leadership and Change in Agriculture where the achievement of regenerative grasslands is the current focus. – The 3LM maxim is Choose Life, You Lead.
