Robbins-Madanes Coach Training

Strategic Intervention is a project dedicated to extracting the most practical and effective forms of strategic action and communication from a variety of disciplines: Ericksonian therapy, strategic family therapy, Human Needs Psychology, organizational psychology, neurolinguistics, psychology of influence, strategic studies, traditions of diplomacy and negotiation, and others. The aim is to develop an eminently practical method for taking action in a strategic way to get things done so that human needs are fulfilled and elevated. SI encompasses strategies that span from the belief systems and emotional patterns within an individual, to individual relationships, to group dynamics, to organizational and cultural interventions. A trained SI coach navigates these different arenas with ease. If coaches and consultants were knowledgeable in strategic intervention, they’d find their clients taking more action on their advice, side-stepping interpersonal restrictions, and enjoying breakthrough performance.
