The status model: core model of all communication

There is a wide range of behavioural models to help you understand, influence and learn various forms of behaviour. The status model is special because it gives you the most basic descriptive language.

On this website we will explain how that works in four steps:

  1. Status Model Basics
  2. Frequently Asked Questions
  3. The Art of Zooming
  4. Extra: Sources of Status
1  Status Model Basics
The basics of the status model are explained on this page.
Don't think of societal or socio-economic status. Put high and low status (positions) aside. Once you get used to working with the status model, you will realize that all sorts of status are incorporated in the model.
And you will discover new connection every day.
2  Frequently Asked Questions
The FAQ page is inspired by questions and discussions during workshops and training. Its intention is to help you understand what the status model is about and how you can use it.
Take a look at
  • What is different from status in improv? (question 3)
  • Status is not a zero sum game (question 9)
  • How about equality and equivalence? (question 10)

Not all questions have been translated. Feel free to help us.
3  The Art of Zooming
Working with (individual) behaviour is fine, but you can take it a few steps further. It is what we call: The Art of Zooming.
This will show how you can connect interactions and processes of any level of abstraction with each other. It will show you new and more effective solutions to problems.
4  Extra: Sources of the status model
The status model was not invented, but assembled. We took status as we knew it apart, did a lot of reading and finally combined it. We deconstructed status and behaviour and reassembled it.
You can take a look at our sources.

Use our texts? Do it the way you should...

Apparently, our writings on this website and from our book help people. That is nice.

More and more we see our texts appear in official documents, graduation essays, and othere websites. That is OK, but only if certain conditions are followed.

The most important thing is: be sure to acknowledge the source. Unfortunately that seems to be missing in most cases and we can and will not accept that.

Would you like to use (parts) of our writings? Be sure to read this first.
