Some of the most interesting things people have learned about communication have come from the field of couples therapy.
There is one intimacy-deepening communication method that has spread from counseling rooms to business board rooms and even to government training programs.
The reason? It works! I’d like to share a few of the core components of this method with you.
The communication concept has taken on different names, but I call it, “shared-moment communication.”
That term comes from the core component that makes it so powerful. When done correctly, shared-moment communication causes two people to feel in-tune with each other.
Communication is often used to manipulate people. We manipulate others to see things from our perspective. We manipulate others even when we give a compliment in hopes of receiving a positive response.
I once heard a psychology professor claim that all communication is manipulation in one form or another. I don’t agree with that, because I’ve discovered shared-moment communication.
With shared-moment communication, you can actually draw the other person into a deeper level of intimacy, even if they are not actively practicing shared-moment communication themselves.
How does it work?
