The world we live and work in is changing before our eyes. Old systems and ideas are cracking under the pressure and new ones are forming, ready to take their place. In times like these, sowing doubt and division can seem easier than stepping out of our paradigms, seeing new perspectives, and celebrating our differences.
At PCM, we believe that quality of life will improve if people can make genuine connections.
We all want to be at our best and enable others to thrive, overcome the irritations, setbacks, and miscommunication that often stand in our way. The great thing is: we can.
We can all learn to decode ourselves and others, speak each other’s language and build better relationships. By incorporating PCM into our lives, we’ll be choosing positivity, utilizing our differences and making an impact for ourselves and others.
PCM – the tool to make a daily difference
We all have the ability to live and interact positively. However, when we experience stress, we can be bad-tempered or edgy; we can even switch off completely. This can lead to misunderstandings, irritations, or setbacks. The Process Communication Model® teaches you how to observe your own and other people’s behavior and understand our different personalities and preferences. Practicing PCM means learning to effectively adapt the things that you say, do, and show, and make the most of every conversation, every situation, every day.
This is how it works
PCM is the premier tool for decoding human interactions. It differentiates among six personality types, which we all have in us: Thinker, Persister, Rebel, Promoter, Harmonizer, and Imaginer. Each type has its own strengths and preferences. A different combination takes center stage in every one of us. Practice PCM in four steps:
1. Be aware of your personality
Understanding your preferences means knowing what you need to be in a good place. It will help you to manage your stress and take care of yourself.
2. Recognize what other people do, say, and show
Observing other people’s recognizable behavior reveals their preferences and the best way to approach them.
3. Adapt your communication style
Based on what you observe, you will know what to do, say, and show, so that you can make a genuine connection that works for you both.
4. Build stronger relationships
With positive daily interactions at work, in meetings, video calls, presentations, social situations – and at home too.
