Coaching in Workshops
The Immunity-to-Change™ approach can be delivered through workshops ranging from one half-day session to several workshops over several months.
The half-day session can be presented as a stand-alone workshop or part of a conference. Participants can be provided with a pre-work exercise to prepare them for the session.
When workshops are presented over several sessions one structure is to have sessions approximately two weeks apart. Within this case:
- The first session usually focuses on completion of the four-column Immunity Map, an interactive exercise through which each participant identifies the assumptions and self-protective personal commitments that undermine his or her leadership goal.
- The second session focuses on refining participants' four-column maps and introducing them to a Self-Observation exercise (identifying situations where the self-protecting assumptions appear in their lives) and a Continuum of Progress exercise (envisioning short-term, medium-term and long-term success).
- The third session focuses on debriefing the Self-Observation and Continuum of Progress exercises, as well as introducing a biography exercise (tracing participant's assumptions back to their origins).
- The fourth session focuses on identifying appropriate tests of participants' self-protective assumptions (these tests are intended to evaluate the validity of the assumptions). Participants run the tests in between the fourth and fifth sessions.
- During the fifth and final Immunity-to-Change™ coaching session, participants analyse their results and the insights derived from running the tests.
