The Communication Zone® On-Line Workshops

Imagine an interpersonal space where communication is flowing, all parties feel heard and understood, and satisfying relationships are built. This is The Communication Zone. When you are in The Communication Zone, communication is effective and clear. It is easier to get work done and resolve tensions before they become destructive conflict.

There are 3 Keys to being in The Communication Zone:

1.  Knowing Yourself—understanding yourself and others
2.  Making Space—for yourself and for others
3.  Shifting Your Communication—to meet others at their view of the world

Entering The Communication Zone—Knowing Yourself

The focus of the first set of of 7 workshops is Self-Knowledge. In these 2-hour web-based workshops you will identify your core personality drivers and preferences and build the foundation for:

  • Building Rapport through an understanding yourself and other using the Interaction Styles lens of personality
  • Building Relationships through an understanding yourself and other using the Essential Motivators (aka temperament) lens of personality
  • Achieving Clarity of Communication through understanding yourself and other using the Cognitive Style lens of personality

The first workshop, Getting Into the Communication Zone is free. It will lay the foundation for being in The Communication Zone. It is more than a webinar and is a prerequisite for the other on-line Communication Zone workshops. NOTE: If you are not able to attend this workshop live, you will be given access to a recording once you register and are expected to have watched it before the other workshops in the series.

What Is Your Cognitive Style?

We have identified four basic Cognitive Style patterns. Each style has a cognitive quest that sets up a mental ‘craving’ and leads us to actively engage in certain behaviors. We will tend to seek out information that lets us satisfy this craving by fulfilling specific requirements.This is an innovative look at our cognitive style that gives us useful and memorable information about what we like to think about and how we tend to think about those things.

In this workshop you will explore your own cognitive style and identify the talents you have to help you satisfy the craving that it sets up. Find out what you must have in order to feel satisfied and where you are likely to focus. How are you inclined to approach a situation or task? What roles are you likely to take? What outcomes do you tend to seek? What are your blindspots and stressors? How does your Cognitive Style help and how does it hinder communication?

To benefit the most from this workshop, you will have settled on a best fit type. We recommend that you have completed the other workshops in the Foundations of The Communication Zone Series. Contact us to see if you have met the equivalent to the prerequisite.

What Are Your Cognitive Dynamics?

Your Cognitive Style influences what kind of information you pay attention to and how you are inclined to organize and evaluate that information. There are sixteen personality types, each with different preferences for accessing information (aka perception) and evaluating that information (aka judgment). There are four identified preferences for information accessing. We tend to actively use only one and maybe a second one of these and we tend to ignore other information. The same is true for the evaluation processes.

This workshop will help you identify which processes you give privilege to and which ones are your blindspots. It will help you understand the true meaning of the popular personality type code based on the work of Isabel Myers. Once you recognize the processes you give privilege to, you can see how you may be overusing some processes and underusing or even ignoring others. Then you can be more open to different kinds of information and evaluation processes rather than dismissing them. And you can decide which processes you need to engage more and develop more. The first step is to understand your dynamics and what each of the processes are like.
