EVERYTHING STARTS WITH….
July 22nd was the weekend graduation gathering in New York for the Class of 2017 Conversational Intelligence Coaches Training which I embarked upon in January! I attended via live video for the two days and was inspired to hear the shared vision of how others were taking their trainmen into the world.
WORDS CREATE WORLDS
Over 40 years of research in the field of neuroscience and social architecture has come together through what is known as C-IQ, or Conversational Intelligence. It is the brainchild of Judith E. Glaser, an international master-level executive coach who has beautifully merged the ancient wisdom of listening to connect with the science of our brain chemistry.
It is a marriage of conversational techniques and the inner workings of how our brain processes communication. By using the tools she has developed you can begin to make the invisible visible by developing your third-eye in order to “see above” conversations, which opens the opportunity for deeper levels of awareness, which we know is the key to change!
By embodying transparency we can create trust, which in turn supports connection and higher levels of conversation. These higher levels of conversation are transformational which support sharing and discovering and new ways of co-creating.
Research shows that 9 out of 10 conversations miss the mark of our intended outcome. The C-IQ tools, like the one above called the Conversational Dashboard, and practices that follow their lead, can be used in both personal relationships and professional environments with powerful results. They improve our resilience; expand our resourcefulness and support cultures that are creative and fun!
Check-in and notice during a conversation where you are standing on the dashboard. You can immediately see what kind of brain state you’re in and whether or not you are in a co-creative place of Partnership or “WE” which engages the prefrontal cortex, releasing oxytocin versus the “I” of a Resistor with an activated primitive brain flowing with cortisol!
