We use the theory and method of the Insight approach, a framework for explaining and discovering the interiority of decision making, particularly in conflict. The Insight approach guides the curiosity required to understand conflict and change its trajectory.
We teach organizations and professionals how to incorporate targeted curiosity into field-based skill-sets to build capacity, enhance performance and elevate impact. Our courses include Insight Policing, equipping officers with strategic communication and conflict prevention skills, Insight in Schools, helping educators arrive at supportive discipline, and others tailored to unique professional challenges.
Our goal is to facilitate problem solving for positive change by advancing theory, research and practice to help transform the social and cultural conflicts that divide communities, undermine human dignity, create barriers to individual opportunity, and perpetuate social and economic injustice.
How we can help
Research and Analysis
We work with communities and in the lab to perform rigorous, academic research that reveals the interior dynamics of threat and defense that perpetuate cycles of deep rooted, social conflict.
Experience to Resolution
In collaboration with Insight theorists from around the world, we are at the cutting edge of developing conflict analysis and resolution method that builds on the empirical data of experience to open new horizons of possibilities for peace.
We have dedicated trainers ready to share the Insight approach with your organization to help you unlock dynamics of conflict and open new horizons of possibilities.
