The work of the psychology Professor, Clare Graves in the years between 1952 and 1959 gives us a deep understanding of human nature and our psychological maturity.
His theory runs alongside Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and gives a deeper level of understanding as to how individuals and organisations think and therefore solve problems in the world in which they live.
In this bonus course, I look at the definition of values, and how they develop based upon the principles of Morris Massey. I then take a wander through the evolution of the various values levels from 1 to 8, looking at how individuals may relate to each values level, how they make progress from a lower level to a higher level, how their actions can be explained by various values levels and how organisations also behave following the same principles.
Finally, I finish with a challenge – which values level are you accepting? And more importantly which values level are you rejecting?
