Seven Levels of Consciousness®

The Barrett Model is the breakthrough work of Richard Barrett. Inspired by Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and tested over more than two decades of real-world experience with thousands of organizations, the model identifies the seven areas that comprise human motivations. These range from basic survival at one end, to service and concern for future generations at the other.

It provides a proven and extraordinarily useful map for understanding the values of your employees, leaders, and stakeholders. Even better, it offers a means for creating more supportive and productive relationships between them, and a deeper alignment of purpose across your organization.

Barrett Values Centre’s Seven Levels of Consciousness services help an organization’s leaders to grow and develop by learning to master seven specific levels of personal consciousness and seven specific levels of organizational consciousness. Barrett Values Center also creates Seven Levels of Consciousness reports for organizations that guide them in assessing and comparing the leaders’ personal values, the organization’s current values, and the organization’s desired cultural values.



Barrett Value Centre’s Full Spectrum Consciousness® services help an organization to measure and assess its culture and values by identifying the organization’s distribution of its cultural values between core value areas that have been established by Barrett Values Center. As part of its Full Spectrum Consciousness services, Barrett Values Center assesses the distribution of an organization’s cultural values by measuring and assessing the personal values of its leaders and employees, the current cultural values of such organization and the desired cultural values of such organization. Barrett Values Center also creates Full Spectrum Consciousness reports for organizations helping them to understand the distribution of these three categories of cultural values.




The Barrett Model is rooted in understanding authentic motivations – the values that matter to and motivate us. Which is why building your optimal culture begins with understanding the values that inspire it. These values – conscious or unconscious – motivate every decision made or action taken.

Focusing on values allows us to perceive and interpret the underpinnings of behavior. As a result, we’re able to craft a clear and precise picture of your organization’s present and future dynamics, without preconceptions – so that action plans are based on accurate insights, and tuned to your particular circumstances.

In fact, values are so fundamental to your organization’s dynamics, they are actually a lead indicator of potential trouble areas. The seeds of issues can be identified long before they express themselves in your organization’s culture, which gives you a tremendous advantage in addressing them.

This is where our approach is uniquely effective. We have pioneered and continue to perfect ways to discover and activate your values to forge a targeted, measurable path towards a thriving culture.
