At Linda Berens Institute we optimize organizations for being in The Communication Zone. Using the tools of The Communication Zone we help people become more effective in their professional roles, as well as in their personal lives. Individuals learn about their strengths, weaknesses and blind spots and as a result have an increased sense of self-mastery, self-worth and self-confidence. They communicate better and their teamwork will improve. They develop new skills that they can use with colleagues, teammates, those they lead and manage, those who lead and manage them, customers, suppliers, allies, as well as their family members and friends.
Teams also learn their strengths, weaknesses and blind spots. They increase their ability to move to high performance quickly, to avoid their blind spots and compensate for their weaknesses.
The Communication Zone is a zone where we are in sync with others, are mutually understood, communication is easy and effective, miscommunication is minimized, and conflicts are handled proactively.
All behavior communicates something and as a result every aspect of our behavior contributes to our communication. Individual differences influence our communications and there are three keys to getting into 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
