  • Title: Unleashing Talent | Knowles Consulting
    Descriptive info: Unleashing Talent.. This excerpt from The New Paradigm of Leadership by Richard Barrett describes in more depth, the context for our work at Knowles Consulting.. Talent managing management is used to describe the process for identifying and developing individuals who are most easily able to evolve consciousness.. These are the people the organization would like to fast-track into positions of greater influence.. This can readily occur by an organization putting emphasis on such an individual by evolving them through an accelerated program of powerful leadership development.. What are the characteristics that an organization should look for in selecting individuals for a talent management pool? What form of leadership development is most appropriate for these people and supervisors and managers, in general? The answers to both these questions are found in the understanding we have developed about the universal stages of evolution.. 1).. The first stage Adaptability.. First and foremost the quality of adaptability, the ability of an entity to maintain internal stability and external equilibrium when changes occur in its external environment there are two components to adaptability: speed and resilience the speed or agility with which an entity is able to adapt is very important in improving the entities chance for survival of survival.. The resilience of an entity is a measure of scope or range of changes or shocks that an entity confessedly withstand a quickly bounce back to internal stability and external equilibrium.. The more resilient and hence to the possesses resilience, the greater will be his ability to adapt and thereby survive.. 2) Continuous Learning.. The second most important quality is continuous learning.. There are two important components to successful continuous learning: first is the ability of an entity to institutionalize (store in memory) learning about maintaining or enhancing internal stability and external equilibrium such that it can repeat successful responses to changes in its environment and avoid responses that did not improve internal stability and external equilibrium – the ability to learn from  ...   ability and external equilibrium.. The ability to bond with other compatible entities for the purpose of mutual survival in a group structure with a shared identity becomes very important.. Successful bonding maximizes the amount of energy that is available to the bonded entities for responding to external challenges and, at the same time, minimizes the amount of energy it is required for maintaining internal stability.. Bonding can be strategic for both maintaining [surviving] and enhancing [thriving] external equilibrium.. For human beings, strong bonds require a high degree of trust.. 4) The Ability to Cooperate.. Cooperation is also an important adaptability strategy in evolution.. Whenever the framework conditions that a group structure encounters are more complex than is used to handling and threatened its external equilibrium, the ability to cooperate with the other group structures for the purpose of mutual survival is very important.. Successful cooperation requires an alignment of purpose.. Not only does cooperation en able surviving, it also enables thriving.. When the framework conditions are favourable and group structures are aligned, cooperation can lead to the creation of a higher order entity.. For human beings, cooperation requires a high degree of empathy.. 5) The Ability to Handle Complexity.. The ability to survive and thrive in increasingly complex framework conditions lies at the core of evolution.. This means being able to handle the internal complexity of a group structure as well as external complexity of the framework conditions.. Unlike the other four qualities as far as humans are concerned, the ability to handle complexity is age-dependent to a certain extent.. We can develop our adaptability, continuous learning, bonding, and cooperating skills at almost any age.. Our ability to handle complexity, however, develops gradually and naturally as we grow older through experience is age-dependent C have significant repercussions on leadership development of discussed.. At Knowles Consulting, we worl with your and your teams to leverage each person creating an environment for them to grow and make a greater contibution..

  • Title: Programs and Services | Knowles Consulting
    Descriptive info: To do our work, we employ a combination of assessment tools, coaching, consulting, and training.. We always begin with the Barrett Values Assessment s and interpretation – Individual Values Assessments, Leadership Values Assessments, Small Group Assessments, Cultural Values Assessments, and Leadership 360 degrees values assessments are some of the core assessment.. The Process.. The assessment data is typically collected anonymously.. Collecting data by name is an option.. Requesting names can be useful when working with small groups.. (SGA).. or leadership teams as it allows you to review data plots for each individual.. (IVA).. Survey.. participants log on to a password-protected website where they may be asked to choose from drop down lists of demographic categories.. They are then asked to select:.. Ten values that represent who they are (personal values);.. Ten values that represent how their culture operates (current culture);.. Ten values that represent for them the elements necessary for their culture to achieve its highest performance (desired culture).. The survey is typically open for one or two weeks.. Reports are presented in English, while the diagnostic diagrams can be provided in any of the chosen survey languages.. Questions may be added at the end of the survey with the following options: Free text, Yes/No, Multiple choice, and Likert scale.. Responses to the questions are provided as raw data, categorised by demographic  ...   impact on people and the organization.. The values assessment also measures the degree of alignment between participants’ personal values and the current culture, as well as the current culture and desired culture.. High performing cultures display low levels of entropy and strong values alignment.. Other indicators which are generated from the survey include: the ratio of positive to limiting values in the top ten values; the ratio of the individual, relationship, organizational, and societal values in the top ten values; and the Business Needs Scorecard which analyses the top ten current and desired culture values into six categories –Finance, Customers, Culture, Fitness (factors that impact speed, efficiency and productivity), Evolution (factors that impact the development of future products and services) and Societal Contribution.. This simple yet profound assessments are the starting point for uncovering the root causes of disengagement and cultural entropy.. They form the foundation for framework used to facilitate powerful and reflective conversations and considerations among the leadership team.. From there we will recommend a program from which to facilitate cultural transformation.. We move though the process, of leading self, leading others(leading teams), leading organizations, and leading in society.. Refer to.. www.. valuescentre.. com.. under products and services for more details.. If you are interested in the possibility of engaging in this work, please contact Knowles Consulting for an exploratory discussion..

    Descriptive info: The Barrett Values.. Cultural Transformation Tools we employ enable us to identify and map the values of an individual, an organization, a community or a nation to Barrett’s Seven Levels of Consciousness model.. The Seven Levels of Conscious represent a context, path, and checkpoint for personal, leadership, and organizational development.. How Values Assessment Process Works.. Values Alignment:.. We ask a group of people to pick ten values that represent who they are personally, how their organization/community/nation operates (current  ...   then able to measure the level of values alignment..

    Descriptive info: In The New Leadership Paradigm, Richard Barrett talks about the importance of culture.. What is culture anyway?.. An inspiring vision focuses the energy of all employees in the same direction.. The pursuit of an inspiring vision gives employees an opportunity to make a difference in their service in a way that brings meaning to their lives.. A highly motivated person is committed, enthusiastic, and passionate and taps into their deepest levels of creativity.. If you want to unleash employees discretionary energies, they need to feel at home in the organization so they can be their authentic selves [values alignment].. They need to feel that the organization is on the right track [Mission alignment].. Most organizations suffer from cultural entropy or disengagement that normally falls in the range of 5 to 45%.. For measuring the cultures of more than 2000 organizations between 1979 in 2009, Barrett Values Centre has found that bankruptcy, implosion or aggressive takeovers can occur when cultural entropy reaches the upper end of this range.. Cultural entropy is the key causal predictor of performance in any organization, business unit, or division.. Cultural entropy is highly correlated with employee engagement and revenue growth.. High levels of entropy lead  ...   the corrective measures associated with various levels of cultural entropy.. In government and municipal agencies, which do not go bankrupt, high levels of cultural entropy caused significant inefficiencies for service delivery leads to angry customers and disgruntled staff.. Therefore benefits for reducing cultural entropy they are attracting talented people to increased employee engagement three reducing turnover and four increase performance.. In order to have organizations that have really wonderful cultures, we need strong leaders.. And those leaders need to be involved in the evolution of human consciousness so that we can tame continually develop a new leadership paradigm.. We use the term leadership development describe a process for supporting individuals in their personal professional growth so they can fulfill their potential by becoming all they can become and thereby find personal fulfilling.. The focus of leadership development should always be but on helping people to become authentic and fully self-actualized.. Excerpt from The New Leadership Paradigm by Richard Barrett.. We uncover the source of the current limitations – that is the current culture and climate.. Then we work with your leadership team to create a living environment or culture that creates shifts at the individual, team, and organizational level..
