What this programme is about, and creating a powerful intent. We explore the STAR Methodology, the psychological underpinnings of the methodology, guiding principles and contracting.


Our human operating system

The key to any change is awareness. Without this, no change is possible. This module explores the systemic influences that govern the choices we make in our daily lives. Research suggests that of the totality of what there is to be aware of, what rises to the level of our consciousness is closer to zero, than to even one percent. Whilst many people believe they are fully in control of their lives, these statistics show otherwise. It is the unconscious that drives and determines the choices we make every day. This module creates awareness of a myriad of aspects that form part of this.


Core constructs for change

Change; an act or process through which something becomes different. Too often we spend so much time trying to change, but nothing changes. To create real and sustainable change in one’s life requires a thorough understanding of change and the core constructs that will either lead to success, or significantly stand in the way. The purpose of this module is to introduce the basics in coaching, such that participants leave with an ability to facilitate conversations with purpose that lead to constructive outcomes.


Who you think you are

When we come from a place of unawareness, we are often run by our default programmes, or ‘who we think we are’. But this is not who we are. A key driver for being human is the need to belong. This drives a whole host of dysfunctional behaviours in relationships when this longing is unconscious.

Module 3 explores some fundamental ingredients to make relationships work, to help you shift out of roles you might see as yourself, but really are not, and enable collaborative and creative interactions.
