You’re in the Driver’s Seat: Moving Communication Forward

√  Keynote (60-75 mins)     

√  Breakout (60-75 mins)   

√  Workshop (2-2.5 hrs)       

The “Driver’s Seat” model is a simple and personally accountable communication tool that has immediate usefulness. During any interaction, you are either driving forward, idling in neutral, or rumbling in reverse. In this shared learning experience, participants will focus their energy to answer these questions: 

  • How do you know which gear you are using at any moment?
  • How do you shift gears once the “vehicle” is moving?
  • What are the underlying feelings and observable behaviors manifest in each gear?
  • If you are in the driver’s seat, what do you do about your “passengers”?
  • How do you use the model when you leave the training setting?

The underlying dual goals are:

  • Personal accountability for communication behaviors. ·
  • Willingness and ability to shift gears for better results and strengthened relationships.    

You’re in the Driver’s Seat: Defusing Difficult Situations

√  Workshop (2-2.5 hrs)     

√  Half-Day (3.5 hrs)  

Driving communication forward gets easier with practice, but what happens when you collide with a difficult situation or are rear-ended by a difficult person? Too often your first instinct is to slam into reverse, incurring more damage. Or, you may too quickly choose neutral, just wanting someone in authority to settle the matter.  

Building on the Driver’s Seat model, the option to move communication forward is usually the best solution. Through discussion and shared experiences, participants will find answers to these questions: 

  • How do you take care of yourself during inevitable collisions with others?
  • Which “Forward” feelings and behaviors are best responses to difficult situations?
  • In assessing damages, how do you distinguish between an inconvenience and an injury?
  • What is the difference between a difficult situation and a difficult person?
  • What does it mean to “Take the H.I.T.” in defusing difficult situations?
