what is Directionality?
Each of us is born with certain personality/temperament characteristics that affect our relationships, communication, and life satisfaction. Just as Michelangelo could not change the basic ingredients in the marble he used to create the statue of David, so, too, we cannot change the core of who we are. This core reflects itself in the dominant pathway of our communication. However, just as Michelangelo used chisels and hammers to change the shape of the marble, we, too, can improve our communication style and strengths. By understanding what we and others need, we can create the ingredients necessary for effective relationships.
Directionality is a valuable tool in helping those who work together in offices, schools, homes, and industry to maximize productivity as they learn to communicate more effectively.
It helps the individual gain insight into his/her own personality/temperament while coming to better value the personality/temperament of those around him/her.
Directionality assists both adults and children in better understanding different communication styles and behaviors as well as different learning and teaching styles. It helps a parent understand his/her own parenting and teaching style and the teaching and learning style of his child's teacher(s).
Directionality provides a road map for exploring pathways toward a more balanced lifestyle and identifies the Climate, Attitude, and Relationships that people need to effectively travel along life’s journey. Just as a CAR needs four balanced wheels to operate efficciently, people need to balance their communication styles to be more successful on their journey through life. The aim of Directionality is to maximize productivity and efficiency and foster caring, genuine relationships by opening communication pathways.
