Richard Barrett

"Richard Barrett (born 7 March 1945), is a British author who writes about leadership, leadership development, values, consciousness as well as cultural evolution in business and society. He is responsible for developing the theory of the Universal Stages of Evolution, the concepts of personal and cultural entropy, and creating assessment instruments (based on Maslow's hierarchy of human needs and models of higher consciousness) to map the values of individuals, organisations, communities and, nations to the Seven Levels of Consciousness Model. He founded the Barrett Values Centre in 1997. Richard Barrett was born on 7 March 1945, in Kingston upon Hull, United Kingdom. In 1966, he graduated from Manchester University with a First Class Honors degree in Civil Engineering. He received a postgraduate engineering degree in highway and transportation engineering from Newcastle University . After spending time working for the Municipality of Leicester and Freeman Fox & Partners, he set up his own consultancy practice in 1977. He acted as a consultant to the World Bank from 1979 to 1985, officially joining the World Bank as a staff member in 1986. In 1992, he became the Assistant to the Vice-President for Environmentally Sustainable Development and started the World Bank Spiritual Unfoldment Society. From 1995 to 1997, he conducted an inquiry into values at the World Bank. Throughout this period (from 1967 to 1997) Barrett spent most of his spare time studying psychology, spirituality, physics, and personal transformation. From June 2009 to September 2010, Barrett moved to Hull to care for his mother who died at age 100 in August 2010. Barrett now lives in Bath, Somerset.

Samenvatting

Based on significant new research from multiple sources, Richard Barrett creates a compelling narrative about why values-driven organizations are the most successful organizations on the planet. According to Barrett, understanding employee's needs-what people value-is the key to creating a high performing organization. When you support employees in satisfying their needs, they respond with high levels of employee engagement and willingly bring their commitment and creativity to their work. This book updates and brings together in one volume, two of Richard Barrett's previous publications, Liberating the Corporate Soul (1998) and Building a Values-Driven Organisation (2006), to provide a reference manual for leaders and change agents who wish to create a values-driven organization. The text provides both a leadership approach, and a language, for organizational transformation and culture change that incorporates concepts such as cultural entropy, values alignment and whole system change. With an updated set of cultural diagnostic tools and a wide range of new and exciting case studies on culture and leadership development, The Values-Driven Organization will be essential reading for students, researchers and practitioners in the fields of organizational change, leadership and ethics.

Recensie(s)

Having followed his work over the last few years, what I really appreciate about Richard Barrett's writing, and in particular his latest book 'The Values-driven Organization', is that he integrates his own personal journey into his offerings - and also that of his company, the Barrett Values Centre. This alone gives me confidence that he really knows his subject - with authenticity, integrity and at a deep level. In this new book he creates a 'bridge' for organizational leaders, consultants and coaches between the mind and the soul, between the head and the heart. He focuses on providing clarity to those who seek to understand the evolution of personal and collective human consciousness - and draws on his many years experience of working with organizations to provide practical guidance and tools to enable leaders to take the necessary steps to unleash human performance within their own lives and then, acting as role models, within their organizations. As an organizational and leadership development coach, I know that I will be drawing on the wisdom in this book for many years to come. - Chris Monk, Partner - Global Business Leaders 'Richard Barrett has made extraordinary contributions to our understanding of the seemingly nebulous yet critical topics of organizational values and culture. His frameworks for measuring cultural entropy and enabling whole system transformation are elegant, deceptively simple and yet dramatic in their practical implications. Richard's thinking is expansive, his reservoir of knowledge is vast, and his connection to timeless wisdom is profound. His work is indispensable to the Conscious Capitalism movement.' - Raj Sisodia, Co-founder & Co-Chairman, Conscious Capitalism Inc and Professor of Marketing at Bentley University, USA

    Richard Barrett wrote this most needed, accessible, state-of-the-art book, that I passionately recommend as a mirror to find out what your journey might encompass next. It integrates his strong visionary thinking with numerous real-life examples of what you come across whilst implementing whole systems change.

    The book shows rather then tells you, how to be a sustainable, leading edge presence within your context. Meanwhile exploring the many practical questions that we come across with our clients, be it around core values, performance measures, leadership alignment, or building internal capacity.

    The Values Centre network itself is a delight to work with and an interesting case-study of whole systems change. This allows the book to be written in the spirit that it promotes: articulating a diverse range of perspectives on the complex territory of transformative organisational and leadership development.
