TRUST AND BELEIF
1: First Things First
When a group (family, team, organizations) first comes together there are stories that have happened between them that dictate the group dynamic. The first things we establish at MyChoice2Lead are:
TRUST: We create a safe environment where the individual feels free to speak up and engage.
BELIEF: Everyone is a LEADER, regardless of any preconceived idea of what a leader should be. Leadership requires no title.
We set the foundation for emotional safety so that every person can be as open as they feel comfortable to make the most of the learning experience.
We establish the first level of self-knowledge to better understand who we are through the DISC behavioral assessment and individual profile. We discover our natural tendencies in response to people, teams, conflict and daily situations.
This gives us the self-knowledge to understand how people see us and allows us to consciously change the way we communicate when interacting with people whose style tendencies differ from our own.
3: Reading People Right
Oh, so you are not just like me?
I realize that not everyone communicates like I do and even though I naturally gravitate toward others who communicate like me, I learn how to identify the different communication styles of others. I learn that people are unique and predictably different and that's a good thing.
4: Minimizing the Drama
Now that I understand you, I don't misinterpret your message, get offended by your response, which help us minimize the conflict. I realize that's just how you naturally communicate and it's not about me.
Now I can stop being offended and am able to see how you bring different strengths to the table. I get excited about what we could accomplish together. I respect who you are and how our strengths working together improves our performance!
5: Humble Confrontation
Now, I know how to consciously adapt my message so that it feels comfortable for you.
I learn how to communicate clearly and respectfully by tailoring my words, tone, and nonverbal expressions.
I learn how to confront you when your behavior is upsetting me. I need your help to solve my problem. I show my respect for you through empathy and humility while asking for your help.
