Spiral Dynamics fundamentals level 1 Certification Training - September  2024

Analyze, understand and navigate complexity through pragmatic application of an evolutionary model based on the research of professor Clare W. Graves.

The official certification training, authorized by the Dr. Don Beck Spiral Dynamics integral foundation. 






If you are confronted with complex problems or want to make sense of the turmoil in our world, Spiral Dynamics is a great instrument to help you.

The model gives insight into the deeper values that drive people and how we have very different worldviews that provide us with different problem solving capacities. It looks beyond race, ethnicity and nationality to what binds us and what drives us apart.

As our societies and companies keep growing more complex, Spiral Dynamics guides us into how this change happens and what solutions can be best used at different levels of complexity.

Application of Spiral Dynamics


Organizations use Spiral Dynamics for guiding culture change, in Human Resource practices or to improve team collaboration. It is used to analyze internal culture, teams, but also the external context such as markets and the social environment in which organizations function.

Social change

Spiral Dynamics has been used in social change, varying from local projects to improve multicultural neighborhoods to guiding the transition from Apartheid to democracy in South Africa. It helps us look beyond nationality and race to the deeper values that drive people.

Personal growth

Spiral Dynamics is used in personal development and coaching. Many use the insights to understand and improve their interaction with others in teams or other social contexts and to understand their personal preferences and pitfalls.
