Level 2 - Changing Behavior in High Stakes US

  • Endicott House Dedham, MA US (map)

5-day residential training program

Led by trainers Kathryn Stanley, Ph.D. and Gillien Todd, JD, MEd

$5,000 - Includes certification and corresponding five coaching sessions

Changing behavior in high stakes offers practitioners, coaches, facilitators and leaders the opportunity to look, through the lens of Structural dynamics, at what drives human behavior in crisis.

Are you truly in command of your behavior when the stakes are raised and pressure starts to build?

Do you know what triggers this behavior and what to do about it?

Would you recognize it in others and be able to work with it in teams?

By deconstructing the structures that sit behind our reactions and reaching into the past to explore story and identity, it becomes possible to understand and change the disruptive patterns of behavior that can erupt in individuals and teams without warning. Using David Kantor’s theory of Structural dynamics we explore the powerful, but invisible forces which drive our face to face interaction when the stakes are high.

Participants are taught:

  1. Kantor’s concepts of the heroic leader in crisis
  2. How to intervene when toxic themes begin to escalate, moral judgment abounds & clashes seem impossible to deal with
  3. To use Kantor’s High Stakes Behavioral Profile Instrument to understand & work with leader behavior in critical, high-stakes situations when shadow behaviors show themselves and begin to wreak havoc
  4. Design & lead interventions that employ story to work on purpose and identity

After the workshop participants are provided with six hours of individual coaching to support them in conducting their first interventions.

Changing behavior in high stakes is open to those who have successfully completed the entry-level program Making change happen.
