Communication is a fundamental part of being human.
It is how we connect with each other.
We all want to be understood. So, we search for the right words and the right tone to convey our message. What we often fail to recognize is that each one of us has a built-in communication filter and because of that filter, what we mean isn’t always what others hear and vice versa.
At the core of your communication filter is your Perceptual Style. How you see the world and make it meaningful to you has everything thing to do with how you express yourself and how you listen.
Disconnects in communication happen to all of us. It’s not because we’re not smart enough, and it’s not because other people aren’t smart enough. And it’s not because one of you isn’t listening or trying hard enough.
Words are a code we put on our thoughts and ideas to communicate our intention and meaning to others. The code you use on a daily basis to communicate is highly dependent on how you perceive the world – your Perceptual Style.
Communication That Works focuses on your communication strengths and shows you how to create effective 2-way communication every time.
All communication requires at least two people—a sender and a receiver.
When the sender and receiver have different Perceptual Styles
effective communication can be challenging because:
Each Perceptual Style has a different primary objective, delivery approach, and listening focus.
We all tend to assume better transmission of our meaning than actually occurs.
The disconnects we all suffer sometimes are due, in part, to taking communication for granted.
