Intervention Cube

Notes from The Critical Incident in Growth Groups, by Cohen and Smith
Reproduced in “Selected Readings in Group Leadership

When classifying an intervention (on any axis), “it is not the content of the intervention that leads to its classification level, but the focus of the response that is the determinant.” (p.40)

When an intervention starts at a group level, and drills down to an individual level, it is more intense, and “an increase in critical incidents of a personal and emotional nature could be expected following this type of intervention.” (p.41)


Primary Goals sits at the intersection of three core ideas about communication:
  • Leaders create vision by communicating a compelling future to their teams.
  • Teams create success based on how effectively the communicate and coordinate with each other.
  • Entrepreneurial ventures are successful only when they communicate value to people with a concern that the business can take care of
In all cases, it’s about Conversations for Committed Results.  That’s our Primary Goal.
