Strategic Intervention (also known as SI) is a project dedicated to extracting the most practical and effective forms of strategic action and communication from a variety of disciplines: Ericksonian therapy, strategic family therapy, Human Needs Psychology, organizational psychology, neurolinguistics, psychology of influence, strategic studies, traditions of diplomacy and negotiation, and others. Types of Strategic Intervention exist wherever human beings use extraordinary skill to bring about positive personal and cultural change. Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Ghandi are examples of masterful Strategic Interventionists that transcend the particularities of religion, culture, institution, job description, or political philosophy (as Strategic Intervention should). The type of Strategic Intervention I practice, called Human Needs Psychology or HNP, begins with an understanding of HOW we shape all aspects of a human being’s life by giving certain meanings to situations and circumstances. It goes even further by explaining clearly WHY we do what we do and how we meet our basic human needs in both creative and destructive ways. By offering this insight, providing all the necessary tools and support, the responsibility to change is securely placed on, and accepted by, the person who has sought coaching, thus creating not only lasting individual change but also a positive shift in family, group, organizational or even cultural dynamics.
