Consider these events:
- A car manufacturer designs and successfully introduces a new vehicle.
- A mother can talk to her teenage son for the first time in many months.
- A program is formed to help get kids out of trouble and back into school.
- A manufacturer increases sales by 30 by organizing into a new structure.
- A protester diffuses a potentially violent conflict with a few words to a counter demonstrator.
- A bank increases new accounts by 70 percent.
- A Greenpeace organizer strategizes more effectively about where to invest her time and energy.
- Two warring department heads who didn't speak for five years put their teams and talents together to make an impossible project work.
All of these examples have one thing in common—Spiral
Dynamics® Training. Our clients and course participants credited these accomplishments to the use and insights gleaned from the
program(s) they attended.
Our students tell us that as a result of Spiral
Dynamics® training, complex problems like war, conflict, politics, cultural differences and change begin to form patterns that make sense. They tell us new worlds open for them and things they didn't understand before suddenly become clear.
Here are some comments from recent course participants:
nvc consulting SD1&2 courses are the first trainings I have ever
felt unreservedly delighted to put my name to in endorsement. I
recommend them highly to anyone interested in deepening their
understanding of human life and increasing their effectiveness in
facilitating change. While the course structure and content provides a
powerful, inspiring, and stimulating learning environment, the impact
of the teaching was especially enhanced by the intellectual generosity
of Chris and Natasha, who presented the material with a combination of
warmth, humour, and zestful intellectual rigour. I also want to thank
Clemens Bender who provided useful course support, in addition to his
congenial and efficient hospitality. As well as profound new insights
into my own psychology, I now have tools and methodologies for
practical applications in the transformation of individuals and
organisations. The human operating system needs this upgrade."
“In my work as a PR and communication consultant, it’s important to understand how to communicate with many different types of people and ways of thinking. There are many models and theories for segmentation, but none of them is as useful and precise as Spiral Dynamics. With Spiral Dynamics, I can communicate precisely what I want to whom I want in the right way. It has become the most important tool in my work—both in understanding a job and getting it done."

"In my work with international projects, the most important parameter for success is my ability to “read” and understand local cultures. Spiral Dynamics gives me an excellent platform to understand, organize and implement changes in accordance with the local culture and the people who are going to ‘live’ the change."
"Unlike many other models I've been trained in, Spiral Dynamics is one
that I find potential applications for, in every single day of my life"

"SD provides a very useful way to begin to understand and engage with
people and organizations around us; our children, our churches, our
employers, our governments, etc."

our relationships, in our systems and in our world."

"Some courses have a warm lingering feeling, but relatively no lasting
impact. SD is different. Its lingering impact was intense and churned
in my head for weeks, while 1.5 years later the lasting impact continues
to be immensely important, providing clarity to my work and my day to

interactions with others."

intention behind the training may not have been to create
change, it did just that for me. I am truly thankful for the dynamism

well as for
your empathy and great humour. I believe that you are doing a great
