That's Not What I Meant!
Nine Ways of Communicating
"The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place."
George Bernard Shaw
So often in our relationships, the lines of communication get scrambled somewhere between the speaker and the listener. We can feel misunderstood or not heard. We can take offense at what others say to us or hear criticism where none is intended. Distortions in speaking and listening are so common, it's amazing we can get any point across accurately. How does the message get so garbled in a simple conversation?
Eighty percent or more of communication is not the words we use, but the patterns of our speech and the non-verbal ways we communicate. Successful communication requires self awareness, interpersonal skill, and the recognition of different personal and cultural styles. Not everyone thinks alike, talks alike, or istivated in the same way. People differ widely in the way that they communicate and the way that they approach a task.
The Enneagram offers us a powerful tool to understand how our Enneagram style affects the way we communicate: what the strengths of each type are, and how our style may be misunderstood. It shows us the unintended distortions in both the sender and receiver of communication.
Join us in May as we explore the nine different styles of communicating and see how we can use our Enneagram style to become a more effective communicator.
A Podcast Series
Hosted by Abi Robins
Conscious Construction is a podcast about the day to day, down to earth work of transforming our world, our
relationships, and most importantly, ourselves.
Join Abi every Thursday on your favorite podcast app, or on her home page as she dives into topics like yoga, the enneagram, relationships, spirituality, personal growth, and probably Star Wars at some point. She will be sitting down each week with some of the world's top experts in their field as well as neighbors from down the street and best friends from across the country.
No matter who's on the other side of the microphone, though, one thing you can count on: you'll be listening to someone who knows how to walk their talk and live out the ideas and beliefs they hold dear.
