Creative Edge Focusing Pyramid: Case Studies At Each Level

Creative Edge Focusing™ is a model for “giving psychology away.” The goal is that everyone in your family, group, community, and workplace knows the two Core Skills, Intuitive Focusing and Focused Listening , and the seven Applied Methods of Creative Edge Focusing Pyramid.

I, Dr. Kathy McGuire, Director,  could tell you dramatic stories of my work as a consultant, the great interventions I can make – but, really, my goal in consulting is to teach people to be able to use skills and make interventions on their own, after I leave.

So, I will give a mix of examples but with the emphasis upon what people can learn to do themselves, at home and at work, using the seven applied methods of Creative Edge Focusing Pyramid
