“If you give a fish to a man you feed for one day, if you teach him how to fish you feed him for life” Chinese proverb

Our Project:

  • To introduce the application of Brief Strategic Therapy to multicultural contexts: from the clinical sector to the corporate area.

  • To provide participants with tools, techniques, and a different viewpoint in the way they communicate with, interact with, and work with patients or collaborators from a different cultural or ethnic background.

  • This is what can happen into multicultural contexts, where people of different origins and culture have to interact.

  • Unfortunately most of the time these interactions are dysfunctional.

  • Following a strategic approach it is possible to transform a dysfunction multicultural interactions into a functional one.


  • At the beginning of 2007, the idea to unite the experiences of strategic consulting in Italy and Europe with the application of the strategic approach in the context of drug addiction treatment agencies in New York City was born.

  • These agencies deal with treating drug abuse and the underlying psychosocial disorders in a multicultural context.

  • These agencies are also employing collaborators from very different ethnic and cultural background.


  • The well-established experience of the Center of Strategic Therapy (CST) in the organizational area, has allowed the two strategic consultants/therapists to create evolved modules of training interventions targeting clinical, communication, and organizational problem-solving objectives for the clinical staff in a medical and drug treatment agency in New York City.

  • This training received the official recognition of the New York State (OASAS) and has been designed to be easily adaptable to any agency, organization or business’s Human Resources.


These modules of intervention were presented to counselors, therapists and medical doctors at West Midtown Medical Group in New York with three primary objectives:

  • to introduce the theoretical postulates of the Strategic Approach,

  • to provide the clinical staff with the principles of communication to facilitate and improve communication with patients and colleagues from a different culture,

  • to offer staff concrete and immediately applicable problem-solving tools that the clinical staff could use during their career with patients and their personal lives.


  • Strategic Coaching & Corporate Consulting desire is to support the clinical and corporate worlds with a Strategic Approach.

  • Our experience has allowed us to verify that the use of Strategic Dialogue is the most functional way to implement the Strategic Approach into a multicultural context.



Working on objectives
Working on objectives: speak and to use the language of the patient or the collaborator to reach the agreed objective.

Leaving from the objective

(arrival point):

building and negotiating backwards at least 10 agreed upon steps towards the starting point.

  • It is not necessary, and further it’s impossible, to perfectly know each culture and cultural context.

  • Using the stratagem “leaving later to arrive earlier” (strategic dialogue), we can enter and intervene in each cultural frame by following the leads and guiding the person we are interacting with.


Treat people as if they were what they ought to be, and you help them to become what they are capable of being.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
