When talking is not enough

by | Oct 30, 2020 | Updates

“The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”

George Bernard Shaw

I’m fascinated by the fact that the majority of us, only rely on 7% of our communication capability. We’re leaving 93% of our capabilities on the table every day which is crazy. If this was an exam we’d all be failing horribly.

And you might agree that it’s no wonder then that most of our conflicts or issues with other people really come down to miscommunication.

Imagine what your relationships with colleagues or family and friends would be like if you could leverage more of your communication capabilities taking them from the 7% that most people operate at to 20% or 50% or even higher.

In its essence, communication is simply a reflection of what the mind is doing. So the secret to improving communication is learning the language of the mind.

When you’re able to understand how your mind really works and learn how to control it with clear intention, your communication becomes more effective.

At the time when my family arrived in Australia, I was a four-year-old who couldn’t speak a word of English. Thrown straight into kindergarten, I had to figure out a way to ‘talk’ to other kids without actually talking to them. Words, the 7% I was missing at the time, were not an option available to me.

This experience is what many (many) years later has sparked my interest in communication and led me to study the mind and its effect on our performance when building connections in difficult circumstances, finding solutions and alternative choices despite people around us being stuck, and influencing people so that they are motivated in a particular direction.

Now, as an Internationally Certified Trainer of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) – the user manual for the mind – I’m teaching people how to build rapid rapport and connection, grow their capacity to see more perspectives by understanding why people do the things they do, manage conflict, create healthier interactions and motivate others.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming is an amazing life skill for high achieving professionals who want to find more focus, energy and achieve goals easier, corporate leaders and business owners wanting to better manage the pace and pressure of life whilst building motivation and momentum in their teams, and founders who are doing all of the above!
