WHAT IS STRATEGIC INTERVENTION? Strategic Intervention (also known as SI) is a dynamic style of coaching that can help anyone, any group or organization take action towards achieving different results. By taking these ‘actions’, taught by SI Coaches, clients make permanent and lasting changes.
WHAT DISTINGUISHES SI FROM OTHER LIFE COACHING? A Strategic Intervention coach (SI) has gone through extensive training in a variety of disciplines and strategies that allow us to handle all aspects of a person’s life. We are trained to identify a multitude of obstacles that hold people back (such a internal values, communication styles, personal relationships, and their life stages). From there, we prescribe strategies to create different results in those areas, as opposed to allowing clients to discover their own path (like some traditional coaching methods). SI clients learn about themselves and their needs, triggers, key relationships, safe problems, and they learn to shift their mindset to thinking more creatively, while seeing the great potential that exists in all aspects of their life. This allows them to overcome any obstacles and fears that have had limiting effects on having more joy and progress.
CAN STRATEGIC INTERVENTION HELP ANYONE? Yes SI is diverse enough to help mostly anyone. It includes goal setting (reverse engineering), communication and conflict-resolution skill building, relationship solutions, peak performance training, meaning-making and purpose discovery, and uses creative methods to help anyone, or organization, take action towards their dreams.
WHO FOUNDED STRATEGIC INTERVENTION? The term “Strategic Intervention” was founded by Cloe Madanes, Mark & Magali Peysha and Anthony Robbins in 2002. It grew out of many decades of study in the areas of Human Development Psychology, Ayurveda, Strategic Family Therapy, Cognitive Therapy, Ericksonian Hypnotherapy, Human Needs Psychology, Organizational Psychology, Neurolinguistics, Psychology of Influence, and traditions of diplomacy and negotiation, among others. The goal was to establish a new tradition within the helping industry that could empower coaches, teachers, leaders, and health practitioners to create change.
HOW IS STRATEGIC INTERVENTION APPLIED WORLDWIDE? Medical practitioners, such as doctors, nurses, allied health providers, and hospital administrators are using SI to improve the healing process for their clients and families. Having a nursing background myself certainly allows me to provide a more holistic perspective to all my interactions. In Industry, SI strategies are used by management, entrepreneurs, in public relations, and with political leaders to create understanding, personal accountability, and higher standards for achievement. Teachers and educators all over the world are using SI with their students.
Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi are examples of masterful Strategic Interventionists that transcend the particularities of religion, culture, institution, job description, or political philosophy (as Strategic Intervention should.)”

DO YOU REALLY CARE ABOUT THE TYPE OF TRAINING A COACH HAS? According to this guy, it really means nothing to you that I’m trained in this style of coaching, or that I’m even trained at all. Truthfully, as long as I can help you work through your problem in a strategic way, the coaching style won’t matter. Mark & Magali Peysha have created a youtube channel to help you understand their process a little better.
