My guest this week is Natasha Todorovic. Natasha is a co-founder of NVC Consulting. She consults, coaches, and trains clients worldwide on the use of the Spiral Dynamics tools, and models and approaches based on the bio-psychosocial development theory of Dr. Clare W. Graves. Todorovic’s expertise includes consulting, training, and development at all levels of management. She earned a master’s degree in business administration from Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland, graduating with honors. She also holds a doctor of clinical hypnotherapy degree focused on accelerated learning and is certified in the Adizes Methodology, a powerful corporate transformation process. In this episode, Ashish and Natasha unpack this concept's history and multifaceted applications, exploring the various levels it encompasses and offering insights on identifying one's stage in the continuum of "human being-ness." The conversation navigates beyond the theoretical as they discuss how cultural challenges can impact businesses and the pivotal role of congruent leadership in fostering trust and enabling a culture of contribution within teams. Natasha elucidates the diversified approaches to leadership suited for distinct groups tackling varying complexities. Moving from the professional to the personal sphere, they explore the applications of spiral dynamics in personal life. Natasha shares her connection to spiral dynamics and its profound importance.
