by Balancing Thinking, Feeling, & Doing
Why do we react with such different styles, especially under stress? Why do some people seem to be stuck in their analytical, rational mind; while others are given to emotional outbursts, and still others get themselves into trouble by acting before thinking? How can we learn to understand and calmly respond to others instead of knocking heads with people that act differently from us? These are the issues we will exploring.
Your primary reaction style describes your split-second response in the moment to any given situation and how that reaction is expressed. This first habitual, well-developed reaction will tend to be either intellectual, emotional or action-oriented. These three styles are entirely different from one another. We inhabit all of them but in different sequences. When we are under stress we slip from the first one, our comfort zone, to the middle one, the trap. To get out of the trap we need to move to the third one, the balancer, and get back to a centered place and clarity.
These reaction styles contribute to a rich and varied workplace. Understanding all of them will help you communicate better and avoid challenging situations that arise when talking to people whose preferential style is different from yours. Not understanding where your opponent is coming from often plays havoc with otherwise potentially successful business transactions, plans and teamwork. The goal is to develop balance and a working familiarity with all of the reaction styles. Learning to identify them and understand how they operate is critical for successful communication on the job, at home or anywhere else.

“This course gave me tremendous insight into my own reaction style and helped me become compassionate and accepting of those with a different approach. I identified my primary and secondary reaction style, and learned how to rebalance myself when trapped in a disempowering mindset.
