What the Dragon Principles Intensive Will Do for You

  • With a strong focus on application to your own situations, the Dragon Principles Intensive explores the wisdom, and power needed to create change in your organizations.

  • The Dragon Principles Intensive will excite you and empower your capacity to manage yourself in ways that will create the influence you need to accomplish your goals.
  • The eight Dragon Principles will give you the most powerful technology for managing change in your human systems – those teams, organizations, and other groups of people, with whom we work and live.
  • You will unleash your natural ability to create and lead change – to inspire, to engage, to direct the teams and organizations that need you.

The Eight Dragon Principles of Effective Organizational Changeeight

  • Conscious Use of Self: Consciously choose to switch off automatic and unproductive energy-sponging behaviors like worrying, complaining, blaming, and fighting–allowing you to consciously choose behaviors that you’ll find more productive and satisfying.
  • Understanding Human Systems: A human system is any group of people that impact each other. You will experience how everything you do impacts those around you. You will build skill in consciously choosing behaviors that will support the changes you want in your human systems.
  • Critical Mass & Personal Support Systems: Realize that there is nothing of any significance that any of us has accomplished by ourselves. In turn, develop the systems of support that will allow you to accomplish your personal and systemic goals.
  • Sound and Current Data: Consciously choose to be curious rather than automatically presuppose, as we too often do, that our assumptions and interpretations are facts.
  • Systemic and Interpersonal Feedback: Do you cringe when someone says to you, “May I give you some feedback?” Practice new ways to receive feedback without upset and how to give feedback to greatest effect.
  • Power as Energy: Discover how to shift from control-oriented win/lose power dynamics to the more practical perspective of power-as-energy which allows satisfaction for all.
  • Learning from Differences: Gain skill at consciously learning from the differences that our egos automatically reject. Learn more about yourself and those who share your human systems.
  • Empowerment: Become aware of your own magnificence and support others to do the same.
