You’ve been told you are in charge of planning the office Christmas lunch this year, and with you organising the festivities it’s clearly going to be a success.
So you’ve selected the ultimate venue in a new high-rise along the waterfront with floor-to-ceiling windows boasting spectacular harbour views – it is sure to impress even the office know-it-all who thinks he is too good for everything.
With many hours of planning behind you, there is no detail left unperfected. From the comprehensive timeline of events through to table place settings and elegant decorations to enhance the occasion.
You’ve ignored the many unwanted suggestions including tacky Christmas tinsel on the tables because, of course, that won’t go with the beautiful yellow roses in the centrepiece.
So here you are, the day has arrived and it’s your time to shine.
You arrive at work early, before everyone else, to ensure everything is running smoothly.
And then you get the dreaded call…
“I’m so sorry but there seems to be a mistake, I’m not sure how it happened but we appear to have double booked your reservation today, you’ll need to find a new venue.”
This can’t be happening.
Before they even finish the pathetic explanation, you’re in crisis mode.
Another venue is not an option in your mind, there is simply no alternative.
Your idyllic venue is no longer available.
Your picture has been smudged.
Your expectations of a sophisticated, well organised event to remember is no longer a reality and the frustration starts to boil.
How would you react in a situation like this?
Some people are able to deal with these types of scenarios, having to change plans at the last minute, and others struggle to say the least. Some people are good at improvising and just “winging it”, others can’t cope well with change.
If dealing with disorganised people is something that frustrates you to no end, or perhaps the fact that no one seems to strive for perfection like you do drives you crazy, you might be what we call a Yellow Dot (a Pictorialist).
So what exactly is a Yellow Dot?
Let me paint the picture – there are only four communication styles that people use.
We have given each of those four styles a label (Visionist, Pictorialist, Rationalist, and Sensationist), but most people tend to forget these labels, so in order to help them remember, we have given them each a colour (hence, the four Dots).
Now I should mention that we are all made up of a part of each of these four styles, but you will be more dominant in one than the other three.
So from time-to-time we come into contact with someone of the same communication style to us, and we get along with them fine. Yet, 3 out of 4 times, we meet people who are slightly diverse, and communicate in a different way to us, and we tend to believe they are just hard to get along with.
The reason for this is that each communication style (Dot) is very different, and has very different needs.
For someone like yourself (likely to be dominant in Yellow Dot) – being organised, being on time, and striving for perfection is just natural behaviour for you, it’s a psychological need!
But unfortunately, the other three communication styles don’t share those needs.
For example – The most important thing to a Purple Dot is being creative, thinking outside the box, going with the flow and always seeing new possibilities – being organised is barely a fleeting thought in their hectic lives.
Whereas for Red Dots, the priority is to live a stable, predictable life and help people in real ways (while getting value for money in all purchases).
Blue Dots on the other hand, they live to feel comfortable and secure and the most important thing to them is their relationships and the opportunity to communicate and connect with others.
So how can we all function in a world where we are so different from one another?
First we must learn the art of organising our communication so that it can be understood by the person we are dealing with.
Imagine for a moment, if when you met someone you could identify what their likely communication style was (by the way they are dressed, the words they use, what their office looks like etc.), and therefore adjust your conversation so that you spoke to them in a way in which they perfectly understood?
Just picture what that would do to the quality of your communication with EVERY person you spoke to?
Well that is exactly what we can show you – with Dots Precognitive Communication techniques.
Dots is a simple and highly effective communication course, where you will discover why people think and act the way they do while enhancing your strengths.
You will gain an understanding of your own natural communication style, but just as importantly, how to identify the communication style of others so that you can speak to them in their language.
With Dots you will discover:
- More about your true style, and how that colours your views and decisions,
- More about others and how to overcome communication differences,
- More on how to understand yourself and those close to you.
One of the secrets to Dots’ success is that it is simple! It is easy to understand, and easy to remember, which makes it really easy to use in your everyday life!
