The Bystander Strengths Workshop

  • Not all things called bystander intervention training are equal. There are a number of ways to limit the effectiveness, or even be counterproductive, when taking valuable time and resources to provide training.
  • This workshop was years in the making, applying theory to practice, incorporating in-depth knowledge of the target community, and creativity to design a more effective bystander intervention educational experience
  • Sequence matters – What, Why, Who and How need to be done in strategic ways with proper language in each step to optimize impact
  • Ideal for leadership workshops, smaller groups (multiple sessions option), or individual chapters

Special programs:

The Social Summit

  • New Members Version or Whole Community
  • Inspired by Robert Fritz’s model for change, applying multiple other theories, and led by Aaron Boe to address a spectrum of social issues.
  • Positive, structured approach to change that gets beyond inspiration and leaves you with plans, personal and group commitments, and options for follow up consulting and training to optimize execution
  • Shift paradigms and gain inter-fraternal buy-in on common wants, current reality, and ownership of solutions across your community
  • Increase buy-in, alignment, and collaboration between various stakeholders
  • *Before narrowing his focus in 2006 to more effective ways of addressing sexual misconduct and abusive relationships, Aaron Boe spent a decade as a facilitator, trainer, and program developer for leadership programs of various kinds, facilitating full-day workshops and half-day workshops that build community and increase alignment toward common goals. He brings his experience as a former sales manager, leadership trainer, college student mentor, seasoned professional and parent to work productively with different ages, roles and professions.

Our Strategic Approach

Rather than teaching about the issues of sexual misconduct and relationship abuse, we strategically target what social science tells us are points of higher leverage for behavior change.

  • Insights from the research literature help us identify specific behaviors we most need to increase and which ones we need to decrease.
  • Social psychology is applied to better understand behavior, and to know where the points of greatest leverage are for behavior change, as they relate to those identified behaviors.
  • Educational psychology is applied to know how to optimize learning and the educational experience for both attendees and facilitators.
  • Creativity and an in-depth knowledge of the target audience helps us optimize framing and relevance, which increases engagement.
  • Applying the work of innovative thinkers on change and communication, such as Robert Fritz and cognitive linguist, George Lakoff, helps us frame messaging in ways that bypass common resistance and are more effective at shifting perspectives in sustainable ways.
