Speaker Janet Britcher
Thursday, December 12th
6:00 - 8:30 PM
Simple application of complex theories – that’s what The Cape Cod Model, developed at GISC (Gestalt International Study Center) offers. Exquisitely simple yet deeply effective, it offers micro-interventions for rapid and enduring growth and change.
The Cape Cod Model begins with an appreciative inquiry orientation: organizations that are still alive today have done something right! So often leaders don’t know what they do well if it’s an innate talent. Therefore they can’t always recognize and leverage the strength from which they are working, and instead work hard to accomplish something with their senior team that could be done by working smart: that is, aware of group strengths. Learn how to engage leaders and teams on self-awareness for change. Some elements of the model include: pay attention to trust building, learning readiness, and small experiments in support of change.
We Will Learn:
How to improve our “x-ray vision” for group process
How to intervene to reflect on a descriptive empowering metaphor for their group process
How to give real-time feedback to groups while they are meeting
How to assess readiness for our intervention
How to recognize client “resistance” as consultant sensitivity
