What is the Process Communication Model® (PCM)?

"PCM is the oil in the gears of communication" - (Werner Naef, Kahleroceania)

... and only takes place when the transmitter and receiver are on the same frequency.

Dr. Taibi Kahler, PhD, developed the Process Communication Model 40 years ago. It is based on the identification of the individual personality structure and offers an explanation of how we see the world, what motivates us, which communication channels we use and, above all, how we react / react under stress.

According to this model, there are 6 individual personality types of different characteristics; the basis is laid in the prenatal phase and does not change after early childhood.

The perception and communication styles are different for all 6 personality types, albeit typical for each personality type.
Important: All personality types are ok!

Each type has predictable strengths and weaknesses, positive and negative behaviors that have a productive or unproductive effect on the private and professional environment.

Knowledge helps people to better reach and understand themselves and others, especially in stressful situations.

"You can't not communicate" (Paul Watzlawik) - Communication takes place not only through words, but also tone of voice, posture, facial expression and gestures.

Knowledge of PCM® gives us the opportunity to recognize these different communication styles in ourselves and others and how to successfully implement them in everyday life.

Development of the Process-Communication Model (PCM) ® by Taibi Kahler *
(* Dr. Taibi Kahler: clinical psychologist, doctorate at Purdue University, Indiana, USA; guest speaker at numerous international specialist congresses, publication of books and numerous articles in recognized specialist journals).

1977: "Eric Berne Science Prize" awarded by the International Society for Transaction Analysis (ITAA - an association with 10,000 members from 52 countries) for Kahler's groundbreaking article "Das Miniscript".
