The FIVE EVOLUTIONARY PATHWAYS

If we look at evolution from the Big Bang to the present day, we notice two types of adaptation: physical adaptation and psychological adaption. As far as life on Earth is concerned, prior to the appearance of Homo sapiens, these two types of adaptation progressed in parallel. Physical adaptation led to species evolution, and species evolution was accompanied by psychological evolution—an expansion of conscious awareness and evolutionary intelligence.

There are five pathways that support human psychological evolution. They all begin with the evolution of personal consciousness. The evolution of personal consciousness is supported by evolutionary coaching at a personal level and leadership development at a collective level. Leadership development leads to organizational and societal evolution.

Select Your PATHWAY...

There are 7 stages of human psychological development described in the Barrett Model. The first 3 stages focus on the development of the ego. The 4th stage focuses on the alignment of ego with the soul. The last 3 stages focus on the activation of soul consciousness.

Evolutionary Coaching

Evolutionary coaching is about facilitating the full emergence of a person’s potential - helping them to become all they can become by participating in their own evolution, the evolution of their organisations, the evolution of society and the evolution of our species.

Leadership Development

To survive and prosper in the twenty-first century, businesses will need to develop a new leadership paradigm, one that embraces the global common good rather than individual self-interest – a paradigm that supports employees in their personal psychological development.

Organizational Culture

Cultural capital and employee wellbeing are the new frontiers of competitive advantage. Organizations don’t transform, people do. Organizational transformation begins with the personal transformation of the leaders.

Societal Culture

Since the arrival of Homo sapiens on the evolutionary scene 200,000 years ago, six worldviews have emerged. Each worldview was precipitated by changes in human living conditions that triggered new stages of collective human psychological development.
