Conscious Communication®






How to Bring out the Best in People Even at their Worst

In an energetic, humorous manner, Dr. Brinkman's message hits home with situations that people find themselves in every day and empowers them with practical solutions. Communication is like a phone number, we need all the digits to get through and we need them in the right order. When we don't pay attention to our communication and its effects on people, we often create difficult situations. By becoming a Conscious Communicator - having the skills and knowing the specific strategies to handle various problem behaviors - we empower ourselves to be successful in bringing out the best in people.

 Dr. Brinkman’s compelling communication tactics include:

  • Understanding: Why do people act like they do? Why does one person throw a tantrum and another become quiet and withdraw?
  • Good Communication Skills: Recognize the basic skills that you use unconsciously when you get along with people and learn how to use them on purpose with difficult people.
  • How to use the power of your projections to influence people.
  • The secret that opens the door to people's mind.
  • The 4 essential skills that will prevent most conflict.
  • Strategies to eliminate the 10 Most Unwanted Behaviors: * Tank attacks * Grenade tantrums * Snipers  * Whiners  * Know-it-Alls * Think-they-know-it-Alls  * Yes people * No people * Maybe people * Nothing people
