Description

10th – 11th June Choose from:

BUILDING BRIDGES BY WORKING WITH SIMILARITIES AND DIFFERENCES

Led by Susan Gantt

This experiential workshop explores how the group influences us and how we can influence the group.

Using Systems-Centered’s innovative method of Functional Subgrouping provides an alternative to our human tendency to react to differences by splitting. Instead, first one side is explored and then the other until the differences can be integrated.

Container Training is available for experienced SCT members – contact londonsct@gmail.com

USING SAVI TO SEE COMMUNICATION PATTERNS AND BUILD BRIDGES

Led by Fran Carter & Rowena Davis

SAVI (System for Analyzing Verbal Interaction) is a tool that helps see our communication patterns and the impact they have on us and those around us. How we communicate influences our ability to solve problems wherever we are. Some patterns support division while others promote collaboration. We will practise strategies for shifting problematic patterns.

This workshop consolidates & builds on previous SAVI workshops. Open to those who have done the Introductory SAVI workshop.

12th – 13th June Choose from:

MAKING OUR WORK ROLES WORK
(FOR US AND OUR ORGANISATIONS)

Led by Susan Gantt

In this experiential workshop, we will explore how a systems-centered viewpoint helps us shift from taking our work life “just personally” to personally embracing our work roles. Seeing how our work roles relate to the goals of our context helps us recognize how essential it is to learn to shift roles mindfully as we change from one context to another.

PUTTING SAVI TO WORK:
BUILDING BRIDGES AND SOLVING PROBLEMS

Led by Fran Carter & Rowena Davis

The goal of this applications workshop is to integrate SAVI understanding and skills into the real-life contexts that participants bring to explore.

Open to those who have done the Introductory SAVI Workshop.

At the end of each day participants in the two workshops come together in a large group to practise the core Systems-Centered method of Functional Subgrouping to explore similarities and differences. This is an opportunity to practise integrating differences.
