Advanced Leadership for HR Professionals, Experienced Trainers, Facilitators and Group Leaders
Leadership and Advanced Training Programs
Most of us work with people in one way or another. This does not need to be a struggle. Unfortunately people often get misunderstood causing conflicts with co workers and within relationships.
This program covers the intricacies of group dynamics, group work, action methods and a range of creative therapeutic tools and the personal challenge that makes using them difficult, through the use of well grounded and theoretically rigorous experiential methods rather than just good advice, insight or theories. Sometimes in a corporate environment we need less talk and more action.
This the key to whether you are leading people, directing, collaborating, motivating, coordinating, or working with people towards a therapeutic end. You will acquire the skills to understand people in all their uniqueness, and help them to improve their communication with each other.
Energy follows action. … . Our need to talk, interact and simply be with each other is part of our development. Group psychotherapy is the most viable method for initiating, improving and evaluating connections. Adding action techniques is a dramatic way to alter the process of a group. It focuses the consciousness of the members on their interactions, which in turn channels and enhances the energy within a group and therefore it dissolves passivity. Adding action methods to your repertoire of clinical skills can be a natural step.
When action methods are introduced into a group, other than just verbalization, participants become more present, more aware, and as a consequence, more conscious. Consciousness is no small matter as it enhances our interactions by making them intentional. Acting on thoughts and feelings gives greater visibility to our inner worlds and greater energy to our words and clarifies our thoughts and feelings. This clarity comes as a result of internal and external feedback and can be used to adjust our way of being.

Team Building through Sociometry
Most teams are formed without any thought of how well they will work together. Someone retires and leaves a spot in a particular department. The next in line is often promoted from within and steps in to take over the job. But do we ever question if he’s the right fit for that group? Do we ask questions such as
Does he have a similar work style and ethic as those in his department? Does he have a similar way of communicating? Does this department know him and trust him? Is he good manager material?
Sociometry, a science developed by Dr. JL Moreno allows us to look at the underlying connections in a group, as well as the covert, often unspoken words that can inhibit productivity within a workplace. Through sociometry, these conflicts can be weeded out, unspoken connections can be identified and nurtured, work teams can be realigned and the organization can function at a higher level, allowing for more productivity and increased morale. The more satisfied people are at work, the more work they do. They more the staff gets done, the more successful the business.

THE DOUBLE:WHAT’S NOT BEING SAID-GIVING VOICE TO THE CLIENT’S INNER WORLD.
The double gives a voice to the inner life of the client, bringing the material that is lodged in the background forward the foreground. The double is often known as the “Invisible I."The double will encourage the client to reach deeper layers of self-expression.A good double will be very effective in helping the client to feel seen and understood, acting as a therapeutic ally while confronting painful emotional material and in moving the client’s action to a deeper level. HOW TO BUILD A COHESIVE GROUP SOCIOMETRY AND GROUP CONNECTIONS
Discover the patterns of connections within the group and make the overt covert. Sociometry gives insight into where the conflict is in the group and guides you to what the group needs to feel more connected.
Well-produced sociometric interventions results in three things: -They confirm the inner structure of this group. -Group members feel more united within themselves, and warm up to progressive roles/behaviors. -The group re-defines itself; group member's relationships are strengthened thus enabling them to be more productive. Use sociometry when: -Relationship dynamics are hindering people producing business results. -You want to move your organizations from isolated silos to collaborative networks. -You want to strengthen teams working in demanding situations. -You need ways to surface and sort out issues of group conflict, trust, and identity. -You want to understand and address the "soft" and unspoken aspects of everyday group life. -You need to develop appropriate behaviors for your ideal work culture. -Its time to integrate thinking, feeling, and action in business relationships. -You want to realize the informal leadership abilities within your organization. CODEPENDENCY IN THE WORKSPLACE: ADDICTED TO POTENTIAL.
How does co-dependency arise in the workplace and how does it affect your employees? Do your employees stop short of achieving their full production? Co-dependency is defined as an absence of relationship with one's self.It is a painful, conditional dependency on compulsive behavior and approval from others in an attempt to find safety, self-worth. and identity. This outside focus limits one's own creativity and spontaneity resulting in substandard production for your company. Many employees never work to their full capacity as they are addicted to their own potential.

Connie Miller NCC, TEP, LPC.
SOCIOMETRY: J. L. Moreno, who investigated the structure of groups and society, developed Sociometry: the scientific measurement of social relationships in groups. As in systems models, the individual is viewed in relation to others. Sociometry in its most basic sense, can be seen as a collection of methods to investigate and evaluate networks of existing and preferred relationships. Specifically, sociometry is the study of interpersonal choices regarding criteria of interest to the investigator. Sociometry is not a study of formal group structure (e.g., official hierarchies), rather it is a phenomenological study of people's interpersonal choices. Sociometric explorations measure, observe, and intervene in the natural attraction/rejection processes within a given group (i.e. family, social, work, or community). These explorations may be didactic or action-oriented and include social atoms, role diagrams, interpersonal relations, sociograms, and social networks.
The goals of Sociometry include:
-Facilitating constructive change in individuals and groups.
-Increasing awareness, empathy, reciprocity, and social interactions. -Exploring social choice patterns and reducing conflicts.
-Clarifying roles, interpersonal relationships, and values.
-Revealing overt and covert group dynamics.
-Increasing group cohesion and productivity.
