What does it take to be on the “same page”? Everybody talks about it. Everybody can show examples of it. But HOW DO YOU DO IT?
In general terms, being on the same page means being in agreement. More specifically, it’s when two or more individuals have identified what they need to do that allows them to successfully accomplish a common goal. Everyone involved monitors both themselves and each other to make sure that they are all on track and stay on track to achieve the desired goal. A mouthful huh? Well just imagine the challenge that most people face in trying to:
2) identify the responsibilities that they recognize they need to do and are commit to doing them!
So what is the FIRST STEP in getting on the same page? LISTENING. And not just your everyday, run-of-the-mill “I Heard What You Said” listening. A connection, an emotional connection, has to be created that is strong. This emotional connection has to allow information to flow back and forth, accurately and intact, all the time! Now THAT is a huge task!
This interaction should be fun. Relationships should be fun! But more importantly they should fun-ction! They need to WORK for EVERYBODY involved! Unfortunately, this usually just doesn’t happen. Most people in relationships experience some form of frustration. And the usual blame falls on one word: “miscommunication”!
But I believe “miscommunication” is not the real culprit; rather, I believe that the real cause is “mis-listening”! The connection lines that make a relationship strong are either not there or they are very weak. This usually happens because:
b) those involved have not done a very good job of making their wants or needs known;
c) the parties involved don’t know WHAT components are needed to make these lines work; or
d) the parties involved don’t know HOW to identify WHICH components are missing that allow “mis-listening” happen!
This is where my samepage℠ Relationship Training System comes in. I have put together a set of tools that will help strengthen relationships. The aim of my system is to take a relationship from where it is RIGHT NOW and see how much stronger it will be after 24 ‘co-hearts’.
What’s a ‘co-heart’? It’s a term I’ve coined. It essentially means that there is a collaborative “sit-down” of the parties involved with everyone putting their hearts on their sleeves or putting their hearts on the table. There are 8 key traits that build strong relationships. I not only identify each of these traits, but also provide a step-by-step guide that shows you how to use them in building your relationship. This building process takes place through the implementation of the ‘co-hearts’!
The samepage℠ Relationship Training System contains a combination of products and training materials. Together, they help those in the relationship focus on building the collective communication process through emotional listening.
The products are a symbolic reminder of the training, effort and commitment involved. The materials and exercises focus on the need for repetitive actions that gradually change behavior and, as a result, change the communication lines of the relationship. The lines become stronger because the foundational emotional traits that bind the relationship are honed, refined and firmly established. The confidence that is gained by finding out exactly what your co-heart wants from you that reinforces your desire to make them happy is immeasurable!
