This workshop introduces participants to this radically simple yet powerful intervention model.

Participants are taught to see and articulate the competence of the client system, followed by specific structured feedback interventions in real-time client interactions. By learning to perceive the system and to provide brief, bold, and direct feedback, participants will dramatically increase their ability to create effective interventions necessary to support change and growth.

Faculty of the internationally known Cape Cod Training Program will introduce the key concepts and skills of this highly effective model through presentation of theory, client demonstrations, and practicum exercises.

This orientation to the methodology provides an excellent foundation for the practice-based intensive Cape Cod Training Program.

Participants will:

  • Learn to begin to perceive an individual, a couple or group as a system.
  • Identify and begin to articulate clearly what the system is doing well.
  • Observe and practice the techniques of highly effective in-the-moment feedback.
  • Use themselves authentically to become instruments of influence.
  • Have an opportunity for extensive practice.

This workshop is appropriate for organizational consultants, executive coaches, clinicians, and other advisors. It may also be useful to managers and leaders in their work with individuals and teams.
