Role Training for People Who Participate in teams


What roles do we have that are overdeveloped, what roles are underdeveloped? The participant identifies what they want to work on and, through a variety of techniques, develops a new way of functioning. Drawing on Vanesa’s psychodrama training much of this learning takes place in ‘action’ on your feet.


Some of the common areas of role development:


  • Fear of authority
  • Being authoritative
  • Setting boundaries
  • Understanding others' motivations
  • Career planning
  • Saying ‘No’ and sticking to it!
  • Finding the next step to productive change

The training is carried out with teams on an ongoing basis, as frequently as required.


The group is an integral element of this training and they are involved in developing new functioning with the facilitator.



Role Training provided on request. A minimum of 7 participants required
