Think, Speak, and Relate More Effectively:

How to Reclaim Your Brain

From the Hidden Traps of Language

Problem

Poor communication costs the average company more than 60 million each year.

 

Solution
 

This powerful meta-skill works at the root of thought, to create a powerful shortcut to clarity. Practice over time liberates the full power of our verbal and written communication with others, eliminating costly misunderstandings.

Results
 

  • Get understood. Think, write, and speak more clearly

  • Influence. Persuade others to your point of view, without pressure, and come away with both of you feeling great about the interaction

  • Strategize. Find solutions more quickly and easily

  • Dissolve conflict. See past the illusions of difference to the commonalities

 

Content


Most of our thinking, writing, and verbal communication falls prey to a habit we call “external reference.” This means that we think, say, write, and do things because “this is the right thing to do,” or “that is not acceptable.”

 

We run this pattern of thought so automatically that most of us cannot see it. Once we do, we understand our own and others’ states of mind, needs, and strategies as never before. Worlds of ease, connection, and clarity open up. 

This class uses Jill Nagle’s proprietary insights and teachings on internal reference not available anywhere else, as well as material from Nonviolent Communication based in the work of Marshall Rosenberg.

 

The material in this class stands on its own, and also provides a foundation for further classes, coaching and more extensive workplace training.

Create Understanding

with The Five Attention Patterns

Problem

Psychological safety is the number one factor for effective teams

 

Solution

 

When we understand our own and others’ Attention Patterns, we can more easily

feel heard, understood, and appreciated. This in turn propels engagement, retention and morale, and helps teams work together more effectively.

Results
 

  • Create more productive interactions with our team members

  • Move through conflict more quickly and easily

  • Match tasks and responsibilities to team member strengths

 

Content

Wilhelm Reich observed that his patients tended to hold tension in their bodies according to one of five identifiable patterns. Fifty years later, we have seen that these patterns predict where we put our attention as we respond to the world.

 

Once we identify these patterns in ourselves and others, we can more often choose to respond from presence rather than react from pattern, and also pave the way for others to shine.


More than the Enneagram, Myers-Briggs, and other systems of classifying and understanding human behavior, the Five Attention Patterns has helped my clients accelerate their transformation, expand their choices, and find peace of mind.

This class draws on Jill Nagle’s original work on coming out of pattern into presence, as well as teachings summarized in Steven Kessler’s recent book The Five Personality Patterns.

 

It complements the Think, Speak, and Relate More Effectively class, and also helps prepare your team for the for Mobile Mediation Station.

Problem

Employees spend an estimated 2.8 hours each week dealing with conflict at work, costing each company more than more than $6K annually per $100K employee. Often, a team does not even know anything is even wrong until someone leaves.

 

Solution

Onsite conflict resolution as part of the company culture, to create the psychological safety that Google found is the main key to a successful team.

Results

 

  • Resolve conflicts on the spot

  • Repair the root causes of discord

  • Heal diversity rifts with true understanding rather than surface remedies

  • Install regular conflict resolution to eliminate the build-ups that cause people to leave

Content

 

We’ve found a tried-and-true way to turn existing and emerging conflicts into opportunities for connection, collaboration, and cooperation. This helps team members co-create a culture where everyone feels that they belong. This process works well with existing diversity training and team building measures.
