    Hey Steve! I’m a fan of Tony Robbins and recently attended an online videos talking about Strategic Intervention Coaching and the 6 human needs, etc. I’m thinking about enrolling but had a few questions and thought it was better to speak to someone who actually participated in the program. I’m a tennis coach and have been for over 20 years. I coach competitive juniors/adult players. Here are my questions:
    1. How much of the program was actually devoted to action steps to learn and practice
    what was taught?
    2. Did you have easy access to ask questions to those coaches who were leading the program?
    3. By profession I have to get results fairly quickly, so where you taught tools for athletes in competitive sports?
    4. Overall was the theme of the program geared towards long dialogue and discussion to reach a solution to move a client forward and have a breakthrough or was it geared towards quickly analyzing the situation in the context of the 6 human needs and coming up with action steps and so the client is no longer stuck and but quickly moving towards their goal?

    Thanks for your time.

      Hi Steve – So sorry for the delayed response with the holidays, etc. First of all, let me say in a nutshell, I HIGHLY recommend the Robbins-Madanes training. I remember people who had been through the program telling me it would be a life changer. Without a doubt, it has! That said, here are my answers to your questions:
      1. I would say the majority of the program is devoted to exactly that. In addition, you become part of a very large community of fellow RMT students and practitioners, and part of your training is the requirement to set up a certain number of practice coaching sessions with them. That, for me, was absolutely invaluable and key to my training and confidence building as a new coach.
      2. Yes. Part of the course work includes almost daily access to live, interactive sessions with Mark and Magali Peysha and Cloe Madanes, the developers of the program. I never felt the need to make direct, individual contact with any of them, but I’ve seen Magali, particularly, respond to my posts in the group’s private Facebook group, and everyone is always encouraged to contact them (particularly Mark and Magali) via e-mail with issues and questions. Their response, of course, is always dependent on their own personal schedules and demands.
      3. Because Strategic Intervention can be used in an extremely wide variety of situations and circumstances, the focus of training is not on any specific area of interest. However, you are likely to find fellow RMT coaches who practice in a wide variety of fields, and. again, as part of the RMT community, it is fairly easy to make contact and build relationships with those who have similar interests. Since Tony is regularly called on to work with major coaches and their players, obviously Strategic Intervention has proven to be an extremely valid tool for working with those in your field or choice. I think you will be amazed how quickly you can bring about change in your athletes once you’ve mastered many of the skills and techniques, as well as the psychology and understanding of human behavior behind them.
      4. Each client, of course, is going to be different, so the speed at which you can begin moving forward with them will vary; but yes, the idea is to find breakthroughs and strategies for moving forward as quickly as possible. I will say, from my own personal experience, that in almost every case with my own clients, I’ve been able to help them make significant breakthroughs within one or two hour-long sessions. Whatever the case, you always want to have at least one or two action steps for them at the end of every session. Strategic Intervention is ALL about moving the client forward, not dwelling on the past. That’s what makes it so different from — and superior to — traditional therapy and psychiatry.

      I hope this helps. Please feel free to stay in touch. You can always e-mail me directly at steve@stevelvernon.com.
