“Richard Barrett has made extraordinary contributions to our understanding of organizational values and culture. His frame-works for measuring culture and enabling whole system change are elegant. His reservoir of know-ledge is vast and his connection to timeless wisdom is profound.”

Based on significant new research from multiple sources, Richard Barrett creates a compelling narrative about why values-driven organizations are the most successful organizations on the planet. According to Barrett, understanding employee’s needs—what people value—is the key to creating a high performing organization. When you support employees in satisfying their needs, they respond with high levels of employee engagement and willingly bring their commitment and creativity to their work. This book updates and brings together in one volume, two of Richard Barrett’s previous publications, Liberating the Corporate Soul (1998) and Building a Values-Driven Organization (2006).
