OUR PROCESS

All sessions can be delivered in-person or virtually, and customized to your specific needs. We'll meet you where you are! 

TRUST AND BELEIF

1: First Things First

When a group first comes together there are stories that have happened between them that dictate the health of the group dynamic. The first two things we

establish are:

1) TRUST: We create a safe environment where people feel free to speak up and engage.

2) BELIEF: Everyone is a LEADER, regardless of any preconceived idea of what a leader should be. 

We set the foundation for every person to be as open as they feel comfortable to make the most of the learning experience.

2: Self-Awareness

We establish the first level of self-awareness and better understand who we are through the DISC behavioral assessment and individual profile. We discover our natural tendencies in response to people and situations.

This gives us the self-awareness to understand how people see us and allows us to consciously change the way we communicate when interacting with people whose style differs from our own.

3: I.D. the Styles of Others

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 Conflict

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.

Not only do I not get offended, but I see now how you bring different strengths to the table than I do and I get excited about what we could accomplish together.

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. I show my respect to you.
