The purpose of communication is to create understanding
As humans we respond to stimulus. When a speaker says a word or a phrase the listener understands it through the filters of their own unique experiences and sometimes these match the speaker's, and sometimes it doesn't. When people listen to respond or argue, they are more interested in putting their point of view into the conversation. When people listen in order to understand, they give acknowledgement, respect and space for the speaker and the listener to gain clarity.
We offer a Communication Needs Analysis service that examines your communication and gives you evidence based feedback allowing you new insights into your communication.
There are easy to learn protocols that create a new kind of listening, resulting in:
- More productive meetings
- Better briefs
- Greater collaboration
- Increased creativity
- Better relationships - both internal and external
- Reduced misunderstandings
Just for a moment, allow yourself to imagine what could be achieved if all the people you work with come together and all strive for the same goal. No hidden agendas, no ego-driven behaviours, no second guessing what and why they are doing things.
Team members understand themselves and their colleagues in a way that allows and respects difference, builds consensus and motivates the team to produce inspiring results. It uses a communications protocol that fosters respect, builds on individuals' strengths and allows people a safe way to change for the better.
Our programmes are built-upon the work of Caitlin Walker, the originator of Systemic Modelling, and David Grove, creator of Clean Language, and we are grateful to them, and many others, who have taught us with a generosity of spirit, a mastery of the detail, and a sincere wish to improve the world.
Your team’s communication is too important to be determined by circumstance - take control now and design the communication you want and deserve.
