1 CONTEXT Learning, Awareness, & Behavioral Change Experimentation, Risk-Taking, & Vulnerability Safety, Trust, Intimacy Ed Batista: Safety, Trust, Intimacy Slide 1 of 10 Initial Conditions

2 CONTEXT Learning, Awareness, & Behavioral Change Experimentation, Risk-Taking, & Vulnerability Safety, Trust, Intimacy Ed Batista: Safety, Trust, Intimacy Slide 2 of 10 Initial Conditions 1) Every groups experience is rooted in a set of initial conditions: How and why were we assembled? What will our first meeting be like? What will we discuss there? These initial conditions form the foundation for all subsequent layers of the group dynamic.

3 CONTEXT Learning, Awareness, & Behavioral Change Experimentation, Risk-Taking, & Vulnerability Safety, Trust, Intimacy Ed Batista: Safety, Trust, Intimacy Slide 3 of 10 Initial Conditions 2) The foundational qualities that define every group are the levels of safety, trust & intimacy: Safety = A belief that we wont get hurt. Trust = We mean what we say and we say what we mean. Intimacy = A willingness to make the private public.

4 CONTEXT Learning, Awareness, & Behavioral Change Experimentation, Risk-Taking, & Vulnerability Safety, Trust, Intimacy Ed Batista: Safety, Trust, Intimacy Slide 4 of 10 Initial Conditions 3) When safety, trust and intimacy are established, these qualities support the actions that lead to greater success as a group: experimentation, risk-taking and a willingness to be vulnerable.

5 CONTEXT Learning, Awareness, & Behavioral Change Experimentation, Risk-Taking, & Vulnerability Safety, Trust, Intimacy Ed Batista: Safety, Trust, Intimacy Slide 5 of 10 Initial Conditions 4) When we feel able to experiment, take risks and make ourselves vulnerable, our ability to learn, to increase our self- awareness (and our awareness of others) and to change our behavior in order to achieve our goals more effectively increases dramatically.

6 CONTEXT Learning, Awareness, & Behavioral Change Experimentation, Risk-Taking, & Vulnerability Safety, Trust, Intimacy Ed Batista: Safety, Trust, Intimacy Slide 6 of 10 Initial Conditions 5) The process of building one layer upon another occurs in a unique contextso in addition to asking whether learning and change are taking place, we also need to assess how the groups context supports (or inhibits) the development of the underlying layers in the group dynamic.

7 CONTEXT Learning, Awareness, & Behavioral Change Experimentation, Risk-Taking, & Vulnerability Safety, Trust, Intimacy Ed Batista: Safety, Trust, Intimacy Slide 7 of 10 Initial Conditions As we learn, become more aware (of ourselves and others), and change our behavior to achieve our goals more effectively… Learning, awareness and change become self-reinforcing norms in the group. Group members become more willing to experiment, take risks, and express more vulnerability. We value the importance of safety, trust and intimacy and act to enhance these qualities in the group. And we identify and seek to replicate initial conditions that support the development of these qualities in future groups.

8 CONTEXT Learning, Awareness, & Behavioral Change Experimentation, Risk-Taking, & Vulnerability Safety, Trust, Intimacy Ed Batista: Safety, Trust, Intimacy Slide 8 of 10 Initial Conditions So we need to ask... How will the groups initial conditions support or inhibit the establishment of safety, trust and intimacy? At each step of the groups subsequent development, are we increasing or decreasing the levels of these qualities? What behaviors in the the group dynamic support the development of these qualities? And what behaviors inhibit these qualities?

9 CONTEXT Learning, Awareness, & Behavioral Change Experimentation, Risk-Taking, & Vulnerability Safety, Trust, Intimacy Ed Batista: Safety, Trust, Intimacy Slide 9 of 10 Initial Conditions A final point regarding feedback: While excessive delicacy and indirectness inhibit learning, awareness and change, the degree of candor and directness in a group must be calibrated to the groups current levels of safety, trust and intimacy. Feedback attuned to these qualities can increase their presence in the group by stretching the groups capacity for candid and direct discussion. But feedback that fails to take these qualities into account can actually lead to less safety, trust and intimacy than before and undermine the groups ability to learn and change.
