The Barrett Model™

A proven and extraordinarily useful map for understanding the values of your employees, leaders, and stakeholders.

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 behaviour. As a result, we’re able to craft a clear and precise picture of your organisation’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 organisation’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 organisation’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.
