The Family Communication
Workshop Series

The Paradox

Family is where we love the most; and often are most careless in what we say, how we speak, and the impact we have, especially in critical moments.

The Problem

Family communication is often eroded by life, especially the breakdowns, conflict and hurt we both cause and endure. Family history usually plays out in present-day dynamics. When families avoid the difficult conversations, the sense of belonging and safety is weakened.

• Normal, everyday ordinary communication is mostly reactive and automatic

• The human brain creates patterns driving how family members experience each other and listen

• The patterned way in which family members see and listen to each other does not allow for anything new

My Promise

Your family will:

• Experience being united and aligned, empowered to deal with any circumstance

• Identify the invisible past based experiences that are barriers to real communication

• Be present to love, connection, freedom and understanding

Your life is a network of conversations. Effective communication is a moment-to-moment phenomenon, not a destination.

The Invisible “R’s” in Communication

The consequences of not accounting for the invisible “R’s” in communication does not appear relationship threatening. The impact the invisible “R’s” have on people and communication goes unnoticed for being inherent in human nature. The impact produces a gradual erosion of the quality of our relationships and life, and then in many instances, suddenly, a defining turn.

The first and second invisible “R’s” are reaction and resistance. The third “R” is a result of the impact of both reaction and resistance, robbing us of vitality, love, affinity, and joy.

Mastery over the invisible “R’s” transforms communication and the quality of life.

• Learn the three invisible “R’s” in communication
• Discover the impact on the quality of your life
• Increase awareness

Enemies of Communication

No one is exempt from the enemies of communication. The enemies of communication are universal. Much of our communication is combative with people vying for opinions to be heard and their agendas to ‘fix’ or ‘get’ people to do something. The enemies of communication thwart your ability to connect and influence.

Learning the enemies and allies of communication makes a difference everywhere.

• Learn the enemies and the allies of communication
• Discover the impact on people and quality of communication
• Disarm the enemies

Abracadabra, Communication

Abracadabra is an incantation claimed to have miraculous magical powers. Most people do not believe in magical powers. Very few people are aware of or have the experience of the magic available in communication. Abracadabra is from the Aramaic phrase “avra kadavra” which means, “I will create as I speak”.

Most people do not recognize the power of words and language. We become habitual in communication not knowing it is our speaking and listening that creates our world.

Being deliberate with language enables you to discover the magic and power in communication.

• Distinguish empowering and disempowering language
• Expand your leadership through communication

How Your History Shapes Communication

Regardless of family history, family members often have very different experiences and memories of their family life, both past and present. Family members create a unique context, taking on specific roles in the family system, which tend to play out for generations.

Defining moments from our past results in decisions made as a function of instinct and survival. Over time the decisions become hidden from our awareness operating in the background, limiting our potential, and constraining communication.

Understanding how your history shapes your communication increases choice. Choice is a function of awareness expanding your capacity to thrive and be fully expressed in communication.

• Learn how decisions from your history limit you in life
• Understand context and its power in shaping communication
