Process Communication

PCM-logo classic-2021-rgb.jpg

PCM®️ Helps everyone Communicate Effectively

  1. Observe & understand your own behavior . . . including why your motivation & distress behaviors can change.

  2. Understand the behavior of others . . . & know how to communicate with them effectively.

  3. Analyze conflict & miscommunication . . . & know how to find the most effective resolution that will produce effective communication.

Personality Profiling

We do not speak about types OF people, but types IN people. We all have a dominant personality type, the type that is seen most strongly in us & this remains our "Base" for life. However, in PCM®️ we also discuss a type which we call a "Phase" personality, the type that the individual is currently experiencing. Two-thirds of the population will experience a phase change at least once in their lifetime. Understanding this concept of "Phase" reveals our most probable reactions when we are showing signs of distress.
