Victim to Victor programme

April 15, 2014 Off By ShakesAdmin

The Victim to Victor programme was initially developed by MAST (Management and Skills Training) in the mid 1990’s in order to address the negative and fearful mindset gripping the country at the time as a result of the shift in political power. The workshop highlights the current negative attitudes prevalent in many South African organisations, particularly those that are undergoing change. The emotions that arise include feelings of lack of control, anger, blaming of others, frustration, not taking responsibility, etc., i.e. a ‘Victim mindset’. The mindset of a ‘Victor’ is then considered. Typical emotions include feeling in control, self-responsibility, being motivated, having commitment and a positive attitude.
