Communicate At Your Best By Being Yourself

Kathy Gruver, PhD

Just be yourself, but who the hell is that? Using ego states to get your message heard.

It’s pretty obvious to most of us that we have different aspects of our personalities that come out in different situations. We are different around our parents than we are our bosses. We have a different attitude and persona when dealing with children than we do dealing with our coworkers, or hopefully, we do. What if we can examine these different states, get to know them, and call them at will to help us achieve more and optimize our time and performance?

Knowing ourselves better, our triggers, our communication personality, and our reactions help us become better leaders, more efficient communicators, and more successful in relationships. 

Using ego state theory we can identify the working aspects of our personality, name them, and learn how to bring forward our best self for the situation at hand.
