Organizations from all sectors of industry and society are discovering the transformational power of cultural measurement, focussed dialogue and targeted action.

Evolutionary Coaching published in 2014.
No matter what type of coach you are, if you are concerned with the healthy psychological growth of your clients, this is a book you should read. It is not about coaching per se, it is about the framework of human development that coaches need to be familiar with in order to facilitate the full emergence of their client’s potential; not just helping people become more proficient at what they do, but helping them participate in their own evolution, the evolution of their organisations; the evolution of our global society and the evolution of our species.
The Values-driven Organisation available in English, German, Spanish, Portuguese (Brazil) and French
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 employees’ 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—they willingly bring their commitment and creativity to their work.
What My Soul Told Me was published in 2012.
This book provides a practical step-by-step guide to soul activation. This four step process involves connecting with your soul, befriending your soul, trusting your soul and becoming one with your soul. You are a soul in a human body. Your ego is unaware that this is who you are. To fully step into soul consciousness, you must learn how to align the beliefs of your ego with the values of your soul, and fully commit to leading a values-driven and purpose-driven life. The ultimate arbiter of where you have got to on your journey into soul consciousness is the quality of the connections you have with other people—not just your family, friends and acquaintances, but the strangers who serve you in restaurants; those who mend your plumbing and your shoes; those who maintain your gardens and deliver your groceries; and, those who drive you in taxis and punch your tickets on trains.
Love, Fear and the Destiny of Nations was published in 2011

Part II describes in detail the seven values that are required to create a high-trust democracy-the journey from freedom to trust. Part III explores the impact that the future evolution of consciousness will have on world affairs at the national, regional and global level.
The New Leadership Paradigm available in English and Portuguese (Brazil)
A first class summary of how to take the leap into a new paradigm of being and lead with grace, love and intuitive insight. This book builds on all the great leadership writers combining intelligent research, first hand results and spiritual depth of understanding. These transformational tools are practical and get right to the core of individuals providing self knowledge, understanding and self acceptance. A central theme of the book is that businesses don’t transform people do and once you grasp this important message along with raising your own consciousness, you begin to appreciate what keeps businesses stuck and why engagement levels are so appalling these days. We begin to grasp that once we’re aligned with our own value system we’re capable of leading with character as well as competence, building real cohesion and trust in ourselves. We then become the authentic leaders businesses and societies need that build trust and once we map personal and structural alignment of an organisation and provide the environment for teams to grow together there is nothing we are incapable of achieving. This book gets to the very heart of all the world’s problems and provides a response that allows people to be whole, balanced and unstoppable then think in a holistic way to make the critical difference. – Kath Roberts
