Organisational Transformation in Africa – a spiral dynamics approach
through case study methodology and storytelling

During this presentation Rica and Ruan will share real life case studies in three different industries, of where spiral dynamics were used to lead to sustainable and lasting organisational change.

Three turnaround strategies are presented during this presentation. The case study of Absa Brokers, in the financial services industry is shared. Further; a Ghanaian case study in the mining sector are discuss. Lastly, the successful turnaround of a large private health organisation is shared through storytelling.

The inclusivity model of Viljoen, that integrates spiral dynamics as multicultural theory and Jungian psychology; were utilised as academic stance. The stories shared however highlight not only the difficulty experienced from a personal level during large scale change; but illustrates how an understanding of differences and the unleashing of voice in organisations can lead to sustainable transformation.

Actual return on investment statistics are shared. Further, the dynamic of dealing with millennials in the new world of work are presented. The importance to work from a second tier, inclusive leadership state during transformational efforts is highlighted.

During this presentation 3 real case studies will be presented. The actual issue, the intervention and the outcomes will be shared in the form of storytelling. Real life ethnographical stories will be shared.
A slide show with sound will be used.


Want to Become Yellow – Embrace Beige the Forgotten Value System

Three parts. 1) Presentation on Integral Music. Musical excerpts for each LEVEL of the spectrum of consciousness. QUADRANTS: how the LEVEL of consciousness of the composer (UL), conveyed thorough the music (UR), interacts with the consciousness of performers and audience (LL) and performance ‘container’ (LR). Music can induce peak STATE experiences. How experience of music is affected by strengths in different LINES. 2) Full Spectrum Mindfulness Meditation (as in KW’s book, ‘Integral Meditation’). Inspired by great music, dance (recommended, or sitting) each level of the Spectrum of Consciousness in turn, ‘Witnessing’ between. 3) Presentation on Steve’s Integral Oratorio, with excerpts. Probably the first piece of its kind in history, it is an Integral Communion: the audience participates actively to enter sacred Integral space. It is a work-in-progress, and Steve is looking for support (including financial) to help bring the piece to its first public performance.
