Intervention Mastery for Work with Groups & Teams

December 18-23, 2018 in Istanbul

Dorothy E. Siminovitch, PhD, MCC – Chair
Gila Ancel Şeritçioğlu, MA, MCC – Faculty

Understanding and being able to facilitate groups and work teams is a core competency for leaders, consultants, and executive coaches. Professional mastery in group leadership means having the skills to recognize and track system issues, being able to tolerate disruptions, and being able to intervene at any level of system.

Working with groups and teams requires a grounded presence, the ability to hold multiple perspectives, and a strategic use of self to meet emerging challenges. One of the most effective ways to strengthen one’s presence and use of self is through the practice of facilitating groups and teams.

This 5½-day experiential workshop draws from Gestalt concepts and practices to develop beginning mastery in group interventions.
Participants will:

  • Be introduced to the principles of Awareness IQ, the synthesis of coaching presence and use of self as vehicles to strengthen learning, mindful change, and better choices.
  • Learn Gestalt theory, concepts, and practices that enhance observation and intervention skills for working at all levels of group process
  • Join in a personal learning group to facilitate integration of group leadership issues
  • Experience working with a volunteer client group, where there is opportunity to practice and to receive immediate feedback on your presence and use of self as a group leader.
