The Barret model


The Barrett Model is developed by 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.

Cultural change

The model provides a proven and extraordinarily useful map for understanding the values of  employees, leaders, and stakeholders. The Barrett Model offers a means for creating more supportive and productive relationships between them, and a deeper alignment of purpose across an organization.

When to use it?

We find that the Barrett Model provides a framework for increasing awareness and also for developing individual leaders, teams and organisations. We use the model, and its corresponding assessments as a way of getting to what matters fast; to understand what drives individuals, teams and organisations and to have the important conversations. We also use the model as a tool for development and to help the organisation move to their next level of awareness and efficiency. The model can be uses on all levels on an organisations, and also as a tool for understanding how the different units and departments fit in to the system as a whole.
