We don't do anything that is not supported by science.

We focus on what can help us prevent harmful and unethical behaviors from occurring. We draw from multiple disciplines of science to inform our strategy and content.

The Two Pillars of Prevention
  • 01
    Access

    You cannot influence behavior without first gaining access, and it is up to the other person to grant access to their mind and heart. Some people will hear traditional training as noise to ignore, and some people will become resistant or defiant, resulting in a backlash effect.

    We draw from multiple disciplines of science to avoid errors and optimize receptivity and engagement with men and women, including skeptics and people from different worldviews.

  • 02
    Influence

    To prevent harm we must influence behavior. To influence behavior we must know the root-level points of leverage that influence behavior change. And we must design training and messaging that can reach those points of leverage.

    We apply social psychology and additional insights from neuroscience to avoid errors and zero in on these points of leverage for behavior change.

It's behavior that harms or helps. So we work backwards from behavior and apply the science that helps us influence it.

Bronfenbrenner’s Social Ecological Model

Cognitive Linguistics by Lakoff and Understanding Different Worldviews by Beck & Cowan

Robert Fritz’s work on Systems Thinking and Creating Sustainable Change

Glasser’s Choice Theory & Applying Multiple Types of Motivation to Influence Behavior

Science must be applied thoughtfully. The point is not to teach science, research, or theory. The point is to design creative and engaging discussions and messages that gain Access and target the root-level points of leverage to Influence behavior.

Therefore, in addition to applying insights from the tremendous work of these researchers and thinkers, it is critical that the end result be a meaningful, relevant, and even positive experience for those who receive messaging and training.
