If you exist alone on a desert island, you can do what you want, when you want, and how you want. However, none of us have this luxury in the business world. We all rely on others to get things done.
When we’re trying to get something done together, differences start to matter. According to Dr. Nate Regier, those differences show up in the way we communicate with one another. In fact, our very personalities are expressed in our communication preferences.
Nate joins me on the People at Work podcast to explain how the Process Communication Model® helps us make sense of this. This is not just another personality assessment tool. It’s a model of personality and communication, that helps individuals understand themselves better and learn behavioural skill sets and self-management competencies.
Not only does this model help us make sense of who we are and grow, it’s vital in helping leaders take care of themselves and people around them. By learning how to communicate better, we reduce stress and enhance compassion. Two key outcomes all leaders should be striving for.
