Crisis Transition and Transformation (The skills of coaching through changes)

What is unique about this programme?

Change and transition are facts of life. They are simultaneously the source and the outcome of all interactions within a living system. In fact, it has been argued that, in a dynamic system, "the only constant is change." Change is at the basis of both growth and destruction. Thus, change can be either a resource or a problem depending upon the impact is has on the rest of the system. Too little change can lead to stagnation and rigidity. Too much change can create chaos and disorder.

Effective adaptation and evolution are a result of balancing change and stability. There are various levels of change within a system. For human beings, change can happen at the level of their environment, behavior, thoughts (mental skills and capabilities), beliefs, values, and identity. Each level of change involves different dynamics and has a different impact on the person and his or her life situations. Stability in one part, or at one level, of a system often requires or creates change in another part, or at another level, in the system. (As Aristotle pointed out, "That which creates change or movement, is that which does not change.")

One principle for effectively managing change is that, in general, change on one level most ecologically takes place in the context of stability on a higher level. Thus, when something is changing or unstable on one level, it is helpful to establish stability at the next highest level of structure. When a person is in a changing environment, for example, it can be helpful to establish stability through behavioral routines and habits. Behavioral changes, however, are best managed through establishing consistent mental strategies and plans. Developing new mental skills or capabilities, on the other hand, is best supported by having stable beliefs and values. But if a person is in a situation in which he or she is changing beliefs or needing to shift or re-prioritize his or her values, it will make it easier if that person has a stable sense of identity. So that even if the person does not know what to believe anymore, the person still knows who he or she is. Similarly, if a person's identity is changing or unstable, it would be important for that person to find a point of stability in terms of his or her position within the larger system of which he or she is a part.

The ability to effectively manage change and "flow through transitions" involves the development of both inner stability and flexibility at all of these different levels. Drawing on his immense experience in the field of human development, Robert Dilts has created an innovative new programme that will help you expand your strategies and skills which can be used for managing life change and transitions of all types. Participants will have the chance to develop the inner resources and wisdom in order to change and take charge of the things they can, and accept the things they cannot control.
