Are you about to hear this from one of your people?
Are you ready for the shock? The same shock you just experienced thinking, ‘Why’s Sean saying goodbye?’
This shock is real and is being experienced by business leaders every day.
Recently I was working with a business owner who was in shock when one of his key people handed in his resignation right in the middle of a massive growth stage for the business with future growth well on track to be realised.
Cue: Business owner in shock.
“I can’t understand it. We’re right in the middle of a massive growth phase and he has been given every resource and opportunity to make this success his own, to really prosper as the business grows.”
Is the shock of ‘Goodbye’ just around the corner for you?
I have found that many business leaders are busy watching the numbers and they miss what is at the heart of creating a fully engaged team, knowing and understanding why their people do what they do.
Do you feel you know your people so well you know what they’re thinking and planning, or are you about to be shocked when they say goodbye?
Do you really know what motivates your people?
Are you aware of what is really driving their behaviour, why they do what they do?
More often than not business leaders believe that they are giving their people everything they need and want, and have an understanding of what motivates people to turn up and perform. But underlying all behaviour is the power of core human dynamics. The subconscious energy that influences the way people behave.
Overlooking or not understanding this driving energy will inevitably lead to you being shocked.
I’m keen to know why you believe you ‘know’ your people. Share your thoughts in the comments below.
As part of my practice to help business leaders create meaningful success without stress I help them understand the 9 core human dynamics that energise the way people behave. This is about bringing out the best in people.

93% of what we communicate is non-verbal and is mostly generated below our level of consciousness. When we bring awareness to our non-verbal and subconscious communication we create a space where we can learn to master how we communicate and learn to communicate in a more authentic way. By doing this we open up a tremendous power to build relationships, and master influence through effective communication.
But, with a lack of awareness of what’s driving our communication style from beneath our consciousness we often face challenges due to our instinctive core human dynamics causing us to react rather than responding. In this case our communication can often create challenges we need to overcome. For each of the 9 core human dynamics that define our style there are particular challenges for each style.
What are your communication challenges?
Communication challenges for each style:
#1 - I use judgemental words such as should and ought. I am opinionated and visibly display displeasure. #2 - I offer unsolicited advice and get angry or complaining when I’m tired or upset. #3 - I don’t like long stories or deeply emotional exchanges. I hold back on disclosing information. #4 - I’m overly intense, moody or aloof. I often redirect conversation to myself. #5 - I’m reluctant to share personal information or feelings. I keep conversation controlled and brief. #6 - I will often question what are others are saying to search for certainty and congruence. #7 - My stories can be hard to follow. I am easily distracted and talk quickly. #8 - I am commanding and sometimes demanding. I can voice my anger quickly. #9 - I am not forthcoming with my own opinions or perspectives and may come across as ambiguous.
Understanding the architecture of your personality and your dominant style as determined by your core human dynamics you can apply this understating which allows you to understand how dominant communication styles develop, with both strengths but also unintended distortions in both the sender and the receiver of communication. Even more, this understanding helps honour communication strengths and minimize communication distortions in order to be understood and to understand others more accurately.
Our core human dynamics, the energy that drives our thoughts and behaviours, based on our dominant centre of intelligence lead us to develop a style we use to navigate our way in the world. When this style is understood and used in an adaptive way we tend to thrive and prosper. When the maladaptive aspects of our style dominate we tend to behave in a way that limits or sabotages our growth and development.
Learning what your dominant style is and how you can harness through understanding core human dynamics can unlock rapid growth through self-awareness and development paths that are suited to the architecture of your personality.
To find out more about how to do this join the - How to bring out the best in you and your people workshop, where you will be introduced to core human dynamics, how our 3 centres of intelligence dominates our behaviour and how our dominant style influences how we show up and navigate relationships, communication, conflict, feedback, coaching, teams and leadership.
