Communication problems are costly in terms of time and money. We know these problems exist; finding the causes and knowing what to do about them are more difficult. The CommunicationWheel® pinpoints specific problems in interpersonal and group communication and provides practical solutions to improve and eliminate many of them. Turning vague concepts into concrete, visual pictures makes it easier to understand why we have communication problems and what to do about them.
The CommunicationWheel® graphically represents the sixteen different communication styles, eight dialects, and four languages based on personality preferences as determined by the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) instrument. The sixteen personality "Types" demonstrate a corresponding style of communicating that is different for each Type. These differences are the source of many miscommunications. The CommunicationWheel® explains the concepts of Personality Type and communication in an easy-to-understand model.
Arrange the names of family, team or group members, students or anyone with whom you communicate on a regular basis on The CommunicationWheel® as an immediate indicator of potential communication difficulties and possible solutions. If you do not know someone's particular Type preferences or style of communicating, a quick method for determining this is available. The CommunicationWheel® gives you a clear advantage when getting your point across or grasping important information from others.

It is said that the Swiss Psychiatrist Carl Jung learned the language of his foreign patients, to be sure there were no misunderstandings. In the same way (although more easily), we can learn the four type languages to communicate better with the people we deal with.
