Spiral dynamics in action: humanity's master code, by Don Beck and Teddy Larsen

Last night I dreamt about a new book on spiral dynamics coming out... this morning I checked on amazon... I found it. True story.

It will be out the 16th of April. Here is the book's description.

Spiral Dynamics in Action explores the evolution of modern business, and provides a model for moving forward amidst ever-increasing complexity and change. Only by truly understanding other people's perspectives can you bring them together to achieve the extraordinary, and this book provides a field guide to the different motivations, behaviours and talents in your team to help you lead diverse groups more effectively. Focused on action over theory, the Spiral Dynamics model includes cutting-edge leadership practices, management systems, processes, procedures and techniques to help you bring about real-world results.

The nature of change is consistent, but that doesn't make it any less enormous or complex to deal with. As a business leader, you are tasked with not only navigating change yourself, but also guiding others through the maze successfully. This book shows you how to shift your perspective, hone your focus and deliver what your people need by:

  • Understanding the reasoning behind different perspectives.
  • Helping people play off one another's strengths to achieve a shared goal.
  • Adopting cutting-edge practices, processes and procedures for improvement.
  • Taking action to re-connect an increasingly fragmented environment.

The marketplace has gone truly global, workforces are increasingly diverse and companies are taking on powerful new social responsibilities. It's a lot to take in, let alone manage, but the responsibility of leadership is to gather disparate parts and make them into a whole. It's your job to turn anchors into rocket fuel, and motivate and inspire your team to the top. By digging to the core of each person, each culture and each problem, you uncover a roadmap to high performance; Spiral Dynamics in Action shows you how to guide your people through any changes and emerge stronger than before.

I'm reading this book. Truly awesome! Much easier to read than the classic "Spiral Dynamics: Mastering Values, Leadership and Change". 
And you, @Stefano Provenzi? Have you read the book? I'd like to know your comments.

@Vi Gia not yet! I actually have not even read the first book. I'm now focusing on the study of different spiritual traditions and practices.

I'm glad you are enjoying it :)

Wish you well!

And once I do read it, I'll let you know what my comment.

@Vi Gia  Would you say the book is an extension or supplement for the classic one? Is it worth reading both? coming from a guy that has the classic one on the bookshelf but haven't read it yet.

@martins name It's a beautiful extension. He (Don Beck) talk about new experiences he collected during those years, new examples (analysis of Northern Europe countries, the situation between Israel and Palestine, etc). 
The classic book will help us mastering the subject, then the new one will be like a section of real world's applications.
