Christopher Cooke

A Fully Open Mind


Many people today are familiar with the basic concepts behind the powerful model of social change and transformation called Spiral Dynamics. But how does it actually work? What kinds of problems can it effectively address? What sort of people can be helped by its sophisticated analysis of life conditions, developmental levels, and cognitive capacities? In this exclusive WIE interview, international whole-systems consultant and Global Spiral Dynamics Group core member Christopher Cooke offers anecdotes and examples from his work to illustrate his use of Clare Graves' theory of value memes and levels of development to catalyze positive change in individuals, groups, and corporations. In response to Debold's questions, Cooke draws on his extensive first-hand experience to explain SDI, in theory and application, discussing how he works and why, with what kinds of clients, and why he thinks his integral approach is so effective.
