What is Case-in-Point?

Our e-book helps you improve your ability to model what you are teaching.

It is about Case-in-Point, the experiential methodology that Ron Heifetz and Marty Linsky created at Harvard to teach leadership experientially.

This E-book is a resource that make new Case-in-Point practitioners feel a little less lonely in daring to do this work, a little more secure in trying new techniques, a little more courageous about their own practice and experiments.

In it you will see us stumble, in hopes that you might become a little less intimidated by your own inevitable “first-time” mistakes; you might even feel a little bit more heartened and energized about your own learning path…

Why Case-in-Point?

The power of Case-in-Point is that both participants and facilitators have the opportunity to grow their leadership edge.

An assumption that grounds this way to teach is: we are effective in teaching leadership only when we as facilitators both model and exercise leadership in the classroom space.

Case-in-Point challenges your current perspective of how to teach leadership and your mindset regarding the exercise of leadership from the front of the room. Experimenting in real-time with Case-in-Point offers you the opportunity to:

  • Examine yourself as data

  • Observe what happens and interrogate your interpretations of the action

  • Track actions and “who does what” and who doesn’t

  • Surface subgroups or factions

  • Unveil rules of engagement present in the room

  • Connect to the purpose of the session

Get ready to be surprised! How can you make sure you continue to learn, as you teach the same content again and again? Case-in-Point will energize your own teaching methodology.
