We’ve all made a statements that were perceived differently than what we intended.
It happens all the time.
Within teams or across departments, the risk of conflict caused by a misunderstanding is especially high because communication is constant. Your entire day is spent communicating, whether face-to-face, though email or on the phone.
This is one reason why improving communications skills is so critical to high-performing teams.
With PRINT, you learn how to tailor your messages so they’re heard without conflict.
You see, communication is a function of Unconscious Motivators, of which there are nine basic frequencies. They key is knowing how to get on the different frequencies so you can effectively communicate with all types of individuals.
Here’s a simple example …
Let’s say you hear a statement such as “I’ll get back to you soon.”Of course, “soon” is open to interpretation.
You may believe “soon” means within an hour or two. Whereas someone else hears the same statement and expects a timeframe of 1-2 weeks.
PRINT helps you tailor messages to the Unconscious Motivators of the people or audience you speak to.
In effect, you learn how to speak other people’s “language.”
That way there’s no room for misinterpretation.
If you don’t know PRINT, you assume everyone else looks at the world the same way as you. As a result, you communicate the way you want to be communicated to … you share information the way you want to receive information … you make requests the way you want to get requests …
This approach fails to take into account others’ preferences – of which there are likely many difference within your team or department.
Keep in mind, there isn’t a right or wrong way to communicate. You simply need to uncover the common ground so everyone communicates more effectively
