|How did you get up this morning? What was your mood when you set your foot on the bedroom floor? As you opened your eyes, coming out of slumber, what came first? Jacqueline, my wife, always sets her alarm early ; as she is waking up, she allows her surrounding to fill her senses, enjoying the warmth and coziness of her bed, taking pleasure in these few minutes of cuddling before getting out of bed.
I do this very differently: I wake up, and in a second, I am up and moving around, going through the motions, putting my glasses on my nose, collecting my slippers, ready to start my day. Not that I necessarily know what the day will look like! It is only after a certain time that my rational brain kicks in and I start wondering what is planned for the day.
How about you? How does your world look first thing in the morning? The Process Communication Model® teaches that, depending on our personality structure, there are six ways to perceive the world: Opinions, Thoughts, Emotions, Reflections, Actions, Reactions. Furthermore, each of us naturally and often without awareness FIRST connect with our environment with our favorite perception. And it’s only later – like in my case when my brain kicks in – that we activate the other perceptions as the need requires. The same happens when we connect with people.

Have a good day.
Writing a blog is a novel exercise for me. Yet I am jumping straight in with delectation and some apprehension. As I start, I wonder if anyone is ever going to read this! I recently tried my hand at daily updating my relatives for a two months period while touring “down under” with Jacqueline, my lovely spouse. To be honest, I enjoyed the exercise, the discipline required to keep at it throughout the day, every chance I got. It came quite easily but as I reflect on it, I had purpose (connecting to my loved ones), I had news to write about every day while discovering new places and I had time. This is where the challenge will be for me in this exercise. To succeed, I want to:
- Have a clear purpose
- Set aside enough time
- Pick something newsworthy in my every day life.
Time … and, hopefully, the string of blogs will tell if I have succeeded
L’histoire est remplie de nombreux exemples de nations qui sont entrées en guerre sur base de malentendu (prétexté ou réel). Les nations ne sont pas les seules à faire face aux conflits suite à des malentendus.
Nous en sommes tous témoins, en tant que victimes ou acteurs, que ce soit sur le lieu du travail, dans les relations entre couple ou entre parents et enfants.
Le coût des malentendus est immense, que ce soit en terme financier ou émotionnel.
Eviter ce genre de conflit revient souvent à éviter la mécommunication. La solution est d’entrer dans l’univers de nos interlocuteurs, de comprendre comment ils fonctionnent, d’apprendre à parler leurs langage et ainsi minimiser les malentendus et les conflits.
Studies show that many students whose behavior is interpreted as ADHD (Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) are in fact « misdiagnosed » by teachers with statistically significant differences in personality from that of the student. Teachers trained in the Process Communication Model® are better able to adapt their communication and teaching styles and thus « bridge the gap » in mutual understanding.
