We Believe In...
When it comes to improving the way you and your team work together, it is necessary to identify goals and benchmarks to measure success and monitor improvements.
How we treat others and want to be treated helps us understand who we are and our default ways of thinking. We can learn to assess our values, make adjustments, and become a better individual, team player, and leader sharing common values.
Great leaders must understand and appreciate their strengths and weaknesses through honest self-evaluation. We’re committed to helping you understand who you are (and who you are not), so that you will be able to lead confidently, make better decisions, and develop stronger relationships.
To make changes only one time is not sustainable. We strive to help individuals and teams integrate changes, and then continue to analyze and review and update to support an evolution.
Good communication is essential to healthy relationships, and we’re dedicated to helping you develop the skills needed to thrive in all your relationships.
Balancing work and personal life is important for everyone, especially leaders. We seek to model that balance in our own lives in order to help you achieve it in yours.
Having fun as a team should include learning together. We strive to make everything we do practical and enjoyable so that you and your team will love working and learning together too.
We are here to assist you and your team in self-improvement, being able to work together in harmony and leading your company to success. We are just the facilitators. You have the power!
Everyone Is a JERK to Someone, Every Day
Painless Ways to Improve Communication with Individuals and Teams
Written by Rebecca M. Rhodes
Who Sounds More Like a Jerk to You?
Someone who hangs up before you are done talking.
Someone who stares out the window when you are speaking.
Someone who won’t let you forget your past mistakes.
Someone who justifies everything in response to a question.
We tend to judge ourselves by our intentions, while judging others by their actions. This often leads us to one thought... “Jerk!”
In Everyone Is a Jerk to Someone Every Day, communication expert and ILD President, Rebecca Rhodes, uses the Breakthrough Communication Model to explain how perceptions lead to misunderstandings that can be easily avoided.
