§ Spiral Dynamics
A man has multiple value systems simultaneous and they can manifest in different areas of life. A man is not a color but a palette.
Each new value system does not negate previous value systems but rather includes and transcends.
In trying to understand change in someone or a company, always ask, ‘In what way does the person operate in respect to this issue?’ Ask not, ‘At what level is this person and how do the rules indicate I should be?’ Graves always instructed that the latter approach is looking for simplicity that is not there. People are not types; they think about things in their lives in different ways.
