Today we discuss how to create a new identity of lasting success using a program called Spiral Dynamics.


Special guest, Dr. Natasha Todorovic-Cowan, joins us to share her expertise in unraveling the people side of organizational problems along with the cutting edge components of building high performance, collaboration, and trust that enables both leaders and teams to become change ready.


We Discuss:

  • Identifying the missing links to creating lasting success
  • The concept of slowing down to succeed
  • What the Spiral Dynamics brand stands for
  • Understanding our interdependent selves in a larger, interdependent, connected world
  • Why more than half of the employees in U.S. companies are disengaged
  • Why companies spend billions of dollars on leadership training, coaching, and consulting that doesn’t work
  • How to evoke the very best out of the people we are with every day
  • What “People Blindness” is and how it’s undermining leadership performance
  • How to build high performing teams and individuals through collaboration and trust
  • How to get companies to make their values part of their culture
  • What it takes to be a visionary leader and truly transform an organization
  • Why a larger percentage of the population doesn’t trust companies
  • Transforming how we see, deal, and work with one another


Spiral Dynamics is about those connections that we make within ourselves, how we think, how we relate to others, how we feel, how we conceptualize the world, and then how we take that and map that over and connect to others.”  –  Dr. Natasha Todorvic-Cowan
