Why Did You Do That? Pattern Awareness for Personal and Team Communication

“He who knows others is wise; he who knows himself is enlightened.”

Like fingerprints, each individual has a unique set of “patterns” that drive what they do.  How a person motivates themselves, communicates and interacts with other people is driven by unconscious processes.

Knowing a person’s patterns allows Managers, Coaches and HR professionals to predict and influence what motivates a person, their work attitudes, how they prefer to communicate and act at work.

This presentation is an entertaining introduction to basic motivation and communication Patterns.

Conflict can be healthy when it brings about new ideas and deeper relationships. For this to occur, the basis for dealing with the conflict must be win/win.

Conflict is unhealthy when it leads to distrust, anger, and withdrawal. These results usually mean that conflict has been approached on a win/lose basis.

The goal of this presentation is to share insights into how communication conflicts occur, explore the meaning of the conflict, and employ tools that resolve conflict in a way that all parties feel like winners.

That's Just Not Me!
The Difference that Makes a Difference to Make Habits "Stick"


Most of the choices we make each day may feel like the products of well-considered decision making, but they’re not. They’re habits.

And though each habit means relatively little on its own, over time, the way we organize our thoughts and behavior have enormous impacts on our health, productivity, financial security, and happiness.

In the past decade, our understanding has grown on why habits emerge, how they change, and the science behind their mechanics. Habits can be broken into parts and rebuilt to desired specifications. Transforming a habit isn’t necessarily easy, quick, or simple. But it is possible.

This presentation covers current research on habits, elements of habit formation, how to change a habit and developing a plan to make habits a positive force in one’s life.
