What is Strategic Intervention?

Strategic Intervention is a cross-disciplinary movement dedicated to increasing connection, communication, happiness, and understanding in all people. SI (short for Strategic Intervention) is used worldwide by Life Coaches, Therapists, Doctors, Psychologists, Teachers, Business Consultants, and Community leaders. The goal of the Strategic Interventionist is to create happiness, understanding, and harmony through helping individuals and groups to harness their inner strength, group insights, and creative and systemic thinking. A Strategic Interventionist combines the talents of Life Coaching with the art of deep spiritual understanding and dynamic teaching skills.

What is the history of SI and how did it start?

Anthony Robbins, Cloe Madanes, Mark Peysha and Magali Peysha coined the term when working on a methodology for change that would encompass the work of great thinkers and leaders such as Gregory Bateson, Mother Theresa, The Dalai Lama, Margaret Mead, Jay Haley, Milton Erickson, Cloe Madanes, Anthony Robbins, Nelson Mandela, and Mahatma Gandhi.  

  Strategic Intervention is a project dedicated to extracting the most practical and effective forms of strategic action and communication from a variety of disciplines: Ericksonian therapy, strategic family therapy, Human Needs Psychology, organizational psychology, neurolinguistics, psychology of influence, strategic studies, traditions of diplomacy and negotiation, and others. Every day students of SI are applying its strategies and principles in new and creative ways within a variety of settings. We have seen significant contributions with its use in classrooms to boardrooms. What distinguishes SI from other strategic studies is the belief that certain holistic solutions “snap into place” when more people’s needs are met, expressed, and elevated.


Because our solutions are based on the principles of growth and contribution. Any change reinforced by growth and contribution not only “sticks,” but also positively influences hundreds of other people.
