He has also worked with the New Orleans Saints. He is the Founder of the Global Center for Human Emergence and the National Values Center-Texas.

Spiral Dynamics is based on the work of Clare W. Graves, and provides a framework for integrating, aligning, and synergizing resources to meet the needs of people at different stages of development.

Dr. Beck uses multimedia to illustrate the value systems that cut across the human spectrum using a very rich and comprehensive approach tohuman development. He teaches the model both on a personal level as well as for large scale systems change.

He is co-author of The Crucible: Forging South Africa's Future (In Search of a Template for the World) (1991) and Spiral Dynamics: Mastering Values, Leadership & Change (1996).
