2. Common Vectors used in a Symbolic Modelling Change Process


'Stages 1-5' below refer to The Five Stage Process described in detail in Metaphors in Mind.

STAGE 1 ENTRY
Clean start *
Identify and respond to P, R, and O statements
*
From a Map into space
 
STAGE 2 DEVELOP SYMBOLIC PERCEPTIONS
Develop a desired Outcome Landscape *
Identify Outcome achievement evidence / criteria
Select from multiple desired Outcomes

Develop a Landscape which includes Resource's, Explanations, Problems and Remedy's
- Developing a Resource
- Sourcing a Resource
- Finding what’s problematic about the Problem
- Developing a Remedy

General Developing Vectors
- Feeling to metaphor
- Embodying a perception / Encouraging psychoactivity
- Going live

STAGE 3 MODEL PATTERNS
Model the patterns and logic within and across the developed perceptions
- Explore the effects/ecology of desired Outcome on the wider system *
- Sequence
- Elicit Causality (of Explanations)
- Test logic of Explanations
- When the Remedy is the Problem
- Incompatible desired outcomes (Problem binds)

STAGE 4 ENCOURAGE CONDITIONS FOR CHANGE
Make use of the 7 Approaches
- Concentrating attention
- Attending to wholes
- Broaden attention
- Lengthening Attention
- Identifying conditions necessary for change *
- Introducing Resources
- Attending to Adjacency
 
STAGE 5 MATURE CHANGES
When a Change occurs, mature it *
Evaluate progress by reviewing against actual outcomes
Clean finish
*
Assignments


Notes:
* Vectors in orange together constitute our coaching model: 'A Framework for Change'.

Because Symbolic Modelling is a modelling-based process, none of the vectors used are about the facilitator having an outcome to make a change happen.
