Practice of Empowerment
A Professional Training in Facilitating Behavior Change and Deep Transformation
with David Gershon and Gail Straub
David Gershon and Gail Straub are world-renowned for their pioneering work on empowerment and their mastery of personal growth facilitation. Developed over three decades, their empowerment methodology has been used by thousands of practitioners worldwide to enable behavior change and deep transformation at the personal, organizational, community, and societal levels. Their methodology was described in one longitudinal study as “unsurpassed in changing behavior.” This introductory training provides the knowledge and skills to apply this methodology both professionally and personally.
You will learn the:
- Empowerment Model—a structure for transformative change: You learn to help people shift from a pathological worldview to a visionary worldview; from a static to an organic model of growth; and from self-awareness to behavior change.
- Empowerment Methodology—a strategy for transformative change: You learn to help people increase self knowledge so they can discover what’s important to them; translate this knowledge into a compelling vision; identify and transform the limiting beliefs that inevitably arise when creating something new; and work with the subtle skills of intention and directed thought necessary to manifest their vision.
- Empowerment Coaching—the how-to of personal growth: You learn the five-part empowerment coaching model: intuition, core growth issues, transformational strategy, interventions and personal growth facilitation. The goal of this coaching model is to enable a person to create a new possibility—the “growing edge.” You then learn how to help them manifest this new growth in their life.
